But, we find even stronger words in Exodus 22: 22-24:
22 “You shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child. 23 If you afflict them in any way, and they cry at all to Me, I will surely hear their cry; 24 and My wrath will become hot, and I will kill you with the sword; your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless."
Is ignoring the plight of orphans afflicting them? I don't think we want to find out.
