Seek justice (Isa 1:17-1:17)

“Learn to do good!

Seek justice!

Rescue the oppressed!

Defend the orphans!

Plead for the widows!”

Isaiah’s call for justice has nothing to do with worship or the law. It is a clear moral imperative. You must seek justice. You must rescue anyone who is oppressed. You must defend the fatherless orphans. You must plead for the widows. There is no equivocation. It is your moral responsibility to help the oppressed, the orphans, and the widows, not the rich or the powerful.
