"Return,ª° I pray you,¹ let it not¹ be¹ iniquity;ª yea, return¹ again,²°¹ my righteousnessª [is] in it." {Job 6:29} + "Then shall ye return,ª° and discernª° between¹ the righteousª and the wicked,ª between¹ him that servethª° Godª and him¹ that servethª° him not.¹" {Mal 3:18}
and considered:
"And moreover¹ I sawª° under¹ the sunª the placeª of judgment,ª [that] wickednessª [was] there;¹ and the placeª of righteousness,ª [that] iniquityª [was] there.¹" {Ecc 3:16} + "If¹ thou seestª° the oppressionª of the poor,ª° and violent² perverting¹ of judgmentª and justiceª in a province,ª marvelª° not¹ at¹ the matter:ª for¹ [he that is] higherª than¹¹ the highestª regardeth;ª° and [there be] higherª than¹ they.²" {Ecc 5:8} + "Surely¹ oppressionª maketh a wise manª mad;ª° and a giftª destroyethª°¹ the heart.ª" {Ecc 7:7} + "And the Egyptiansª made²°¹ the childrenª of Israelª to serveª° with rigour:ª ... And they made²°¹ their livesª bitterª° with hardª bondage,ª in morter,ª and in brick,ª and in all manner¹ of serviceª in the field:ª¹ all¹ their service,ª wherein¹ they made them serve,ª° [was] with rigour.ª" {Exd 1:13-14} + "And he said,ª° When ye do the office of a midwifeª° to¹ the Hebrew women,ª and seeª° [them] upon¹ the stools;ª if¹ it¹ [be] a son,ª then ye shall killª° him: but if¹ it¹ [be] a daughter,ª then she shall live.ª°" {Exd 1:16} + "And Pharaohª chargedª° all¹ his people,ª saying,ª° Every¹ sonª that is bornª ye shall castª° into the river,ª and every¹ daughterª ye shall save alive.ª°" {Exd 1:22} + "And it came to pass¹ in process²² of time,ª¹¹ that the kingª of Egyptª died:ª° and the childrenª of Israelª sighedª° by reason ofª the bondage,ª and they cried,ª° and their cryª came upª° unto¹ Godª by reason of¹ the bondage.ª ... And Godª heardª°¹ their groaning,ª and Godª rememberedª°¹ his covenantª with¹ Abraham,ª with¹ Isaac,ª and with¹ Jacob.ª" {Exd 2:23-24} + "There is no¹ strawª givenª° unto thy servants,ª and they sayª° to us, Makeª° brick:ª and, behold,¹ thy servantsª [are] beaten;ª° but the faultª° [is] in thine own people.ª ... And the officersª° of the childrenª of Israelª did seeª° [that] they [were] in evilª [case], after it was said,ª° Ye shall not¹ minishª° [ought] from your bricksª¹ of your dailyª task.ª" {Exd 5:16-19} + "The fruitª of thy land,ª and all¹ thy labours,ª shall a nationª which¹ thou knowestª° not¹ eat up;ª° and thou shalt be¹ only¹ oppressedª° and crushedª° alway:ª¹" {Deu 28:33} + "Therefore shalt thou serveª°¹ thine enemiesª° which¹ the LORDª shall sendª° against thee, in hunger,ª and in thirst,ª and in nakedness,ª and in wantª of all¹ [things]: and he shall putª° a yokeª of ironª upon¹ thy neck,ª until¹ he have destroyedª° thee." {Deu 28:48} + "And the childrenª of Israelª criedª° unto¹ the LORD:ª for¹ he had nineª hundredª chariotsª of iron;ª and twentyª yearsª he¹ mightily²¹ oppressedª°¹ the childrenª of Israel.ª" {Jdg 4:3} + "And the angerª of the LORDª was hotª° against Israel,ª and he soldª° them into the handsª of the Philistines,ª and into the handsª of the childrenª of Ammon.ª ... And that¹ yearª they vexedª° and oppressedª°¹ the childrenª of Israel:ª eighteenªª years,ª¹ all¹ the childrenª of Israelª that¹ [were] on the other sideª Jordanª in the landª of the Amorites,ª which¹ [is] in Gilead.ª" {Jdg 10:7-8} + "And there was¹ a greatª cryª of the peopleª and of their wivesª against¹ their brethrenª the Jews.ª ... Yet now¹ our fleshª [is] as the fleshª of our brethren,ª our childrenª as their children:ª and, lo,¹ we¹ bring into bondageª°¹ our sonsª and our daughtersª to be servants,ª and [some] of our daughtersª¹ areª brought unto bondageª° [already]: neither¹ [is it] in our powerªª [to redeem them]; for other¹ men² have our landsª and vineyards.ª" {Neh 5:1-5} + "They cause the nakedª to lodgeª° without¹¹ clothing,ª that [they have] no¹ coveringª in the cold.ª ... Menª groanª° from out of the city,ª¹ and the soulª of the woundedª crieth out:ª° yet Godª layethª° not¹ follyª [to them]." {Job 24:7-12} + "He lieth in waitª° secretlyª as a lionª in his den:ª he lieth in waitª° to catchª° the poor:ª he doth catchª° the poor,ª when he drawethª° him into his net.ª ... He croucheth,ª° [and] humblethª° himself, that the poorª²°° may fallª° by his strong ones.ª" {Psa 10:9-10} + "A poorª° manª that oppressethª° the poorª [is like] a sweepingª° rainª which leaveth no¹ food.ª" {Prv 28:3} + "[As] a roaringª° lion,ª and a rangingª° bear;ª [so is] a wickedª rulerª° over¹ the poorª people.ª ... The princeª that wantethª understandingª [is] also a greatª oppressor:ª [but] he that hatethª° covetousnessª shall prolongª° [his] days.ª" {Prv 28:15-16} + "For¹ the vineyardª of the LORDª of hostsª [is] the houseª of Israel,ª and the menª of Judahª his pleasantª plant:ª and he lookedª° for judgment,ª but behold¹ oppression;ª for righteousness,ª but behold¹ a cry.ª" {Isa 5:7} + "But I will putª° it into the handª of them that afflictª° thee; which¹ have saidª° to thy soul,ª Bow down,ª° that we may go over:ª° and thou hast laidª° thy bodyª as the ground,ª and as the street,ª to them that went over.ª°" {Isa 51:23} + "Their feetª runª° to evil,ª and they make hasteª° to shedª° innocentª blood:ª their thoughtsª [are] thoughtsª of iniquity;ª wastingª and destructionª [are] in their paths.ª" {Isa 59:7} + "In transgressingª° and lyingª° against the LORD,ª and departing awayª° fromª¹ our God,ª speakingª° oppressionª and revolt,ª conceivingª° and utteringª° from the heartª¹ wordsª of falsehood.ª ... Yea, truthª faileth;ª°¹ and he [that] departethª° from evilª¹ maketh himself a prey:ª° and the LORDª sawª° [it], and it displeasedª²°¹ him that¹ [there was] no¹ judgment.ª" {Isa 59:13-15} + "And I will come nearª° to¹ you to judgment;ª and I will be¹ a swiftª° witnessª against the sorcerers,ª° and against the adulterers,ª° and against falseª swearers,ª° and against those that oppressª° the hirelingª in [his] wages,ª the widow,ª and the fatherless,ª and that turn asideª° the strangerª [from his right], and fearª° not¹ me, saithª° the LORDª of hosts.ª" {Mal 3:5}
the tears:
"My tearsª have been¹ my meatª dayª and night,ª while they continuallyª¹ sayª° unto¹ me, Where¹ [is] thy God?ª" {Psa 42:3} + "I will sayª° unto Godª my rock,ª Why¹ hast thou forgottenª° me? why¹ go²°¹ I mourningª° because of the oppressionª of the enemy?ª°" {Psa 42:9} + "Thou feedestª° them with the breadª of tears;ª and givest them tearsª to drinkª° in great measure.ª" {Psa 80:5} + "Mine enemiesª° reproachª° me all¹ the day;ª [and] they that are madª° against me are swornª° against me. ...

they had:
"I¹ also¹ could speakª° as ye [do]: ifª your soulª wereª in my soul's² stead,¹¹ I could heap upª° wordsª against¹ you, and shakeª° mine¹ headª at²¹ you." {Job 16:4} + "Have pity²° upon¹ me, have pity²° upon¹ me, O ye¹ my friends;ª for¹ the handª of Godª hath touchedª° me. ... Why¹ do ye persecuteª° me as¹ God,ª and are not¹ satisfiedª° with my flesh?ª¹" {Job 19:21-22} + "Reproachª hath brokenª° my heart;ª and I am full of heaviness:ª° and I lookedª° [for some] to take pity,ª° but [there was] none;¹ and for comforters,ª° but I foundª° none.¹" {Psa 69:20} + "I lookedª° on [my] right hand,ª and beheld,ª° but [there was] no man¹ that would knowª° me: refugeª failedª°¹ me; no man¹ caredª° for my soul.ª" {Psa 142:4} + "All¹ the brethrenª of the poorª° do hateª° him: how much more¹¹ do his friendsª go farª° from¹ him? he pursuethª° [them with] words,ª [yet] they¹ [are] wanting¹ [to him]." {Prv 19:7} + "She weepeth²° soreª° in the night,ª and her tearsª [are] on¹ her cheeks:ª among all¹¹ her loversª° she hath none¹ to comfortª° [her]: all¹ her friendsª have dealt treacherouslyª° with her, they are become¹ her enemies.ª°" {Lam 1:2} + "Her filthinessª [is] in her skirts;ª she rememberethª° not¹ her last end;ª therefore she came downª° wonderfully:ª she had no¹ comforter.ª° O LORD,ª beholdª°¹ my affliction:ª for¹ the enemyª° hath magnifiedª° [himself]." {Lam 1:9} + "Butª allª thisª was done,ª° thatª the¹ scripturesª of the¹ prophetsª might be fulfilled.ª° Thenª allª the¹ disciplesª forsookª° him,ª and fled.ª°" {Mtt 26:56} + "Atª myª firstª answerª no manª stood²° with¹ me,ª butª allª [men] forsookª° me:ª [I pray God] that it may²° notª be laid²° to their charge.ª¹ ...
