- They pass the night naked without clothing, and have no covering in the cold;
- They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and for want of a shelter embrace the rock ...
- They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor:
- These go naked without clothing, and, hungry, they bear the sheaf;
