j Rescue those who are being taken away to death;
hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.
If you say, "Behold, we did not know this,"
k does not he who l weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who m keeps watch over your soul know it,
and will he not repay man n according to his work?

Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
Isaiah 58:6 - 7

All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit.
1 Samuel 16:7

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
For according to the work of a man he will repay him, and according to his ways he will make it befall him.
