Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy (Proverbs 31:8-9).
Ancient kings were not noted for noticing the needs of the powerless, but King Lemuel’s mother exhorted him to be different. We worship a God and King who does care for and speak up for the needy. We should be like Him.
