Job 24:4 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They turn the needy out of the way - They will not permit them to go by the accustomed paths; they oblige them to take circuitous routes. When the Marquis of H. was made ranger of Richmond Park, he thought it his duty to shut up a pathway which had existed for a long time; and those who presumed, after this shutting up, to break the fence, and take that path as formerly, were prosecuted. A cobbler near the place entered an action against the marquis: the cause was tried, the marquis cast, and the path ordered to be opened, on the ground that it had, time out of mind, been a public undisputed path. When one asked the cobbler, "How he could have the boldness to go to law with the Marquis of H.?" he answered, "Because I did not like to leave the world worse than I found it." All tolerated oppression and voluntary forfeiture of ancient rights, are injurious to society at large, and they who wink at them leave the world worse than they found it.

Objection 2: Further, it is stated (Mat. 1:19) that Joseph . . . being a just man . . . "was minded to put" …

Whether the Old Law Set Forth Suitable Precepts About the Members of the Household?
When daylight is gone, the murderer rises up, kills the poor and needy, and in the night steals forth like a thief.
because I rescued the poor who cried for help, and the fatherless who had none to assist them.
I was a father to the needy; I took up the case of the stranger.
Have I not wept for those in trouble? Has not my soul grieved for the poor?
if I have seen anyone perishing for lack of clothing, or the needy without garments,
For the director of music. A psalm of David. Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; the LORD delivers them in times of trouble.
Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.
