Great Legal Quote of the Day: The Bible

“Ah! Those who enact unjust statutes,
    who write oppressive decrees,
 Depriving the needy of judgment,
    robbing my people’s poor of justice,
Making widows their plunder,
    and orphans their prey!
What will you do on the day of punishment,
    when the storm comes from afar?
To whom will you flee for help?
    Where will you leave your wealth,
Lest it sink beneath the captive
    or fall beneath the slain?
For all this, his wrath is not turned back,
    his hand is still outstretched!”

–Isaiah 10:1-4, NABRE translation.
