CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And oppress not - He had commanded positive acts of love; he now forbids every sort of unlove. "He that oppresseth the poor," Solomon had said, "reproacheth his Maker. The widow, the orphan, the stranger, the afflicted" Proverbs 24:31, are, throughout the law, the special objects of God's care. This was the condition which God made by Jeremiah; "If ye thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if ye thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor; if ye oppress not the stranger the fatherless and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt, then will I cause you to dwell in this, place" Jeremiah 7:5-7.

"You shall not afflict any widow or orphan.
Though they intended evil against You And devised a plot, They will not succeed.
May he vindicate the afflicted of the people, Save the children of the needy And crush the oppressor.
Do not rob the poor because he is poor, Or crush the afflicted at the gate;
Do not move the ancient boundary Or go into the fields of the fatherless,
Your rulers are rebels And companions of thieves; Everyone loves a bribe And chases after rewards. They do not defend the orphan, Nor does the widow's plea come before them.
