God's protection - a Christian perspective
God specifically places the downtrodden of society--widows and orphans, among others--under his protection. Offenses committed against them are a sure way to trigger God's anger.


Fatherless - a Christian perspective
The Bible often mentions God's defense of orphans and others who were powerless in society. Here, God is described as protecting widows, orphans, and the lonely.


Orphan - a Christian perspective
Orphans (and widows, another class out socially disadvantaged person) were of special concern to God. He clearly commands His people to take care of them and not abuse them in any way. God's love extends to all people, regardless of family or social status.


"Widow" in the Bible: James 1:27
Both the Old and New Testaments contain many exhortations to care for widows and orphans. Widows and orphans have been cut off from the rest of society and lack the family support structures that the rest of us enjoy. We live in a culture different from that of ancient Israel, but we are still obligated to help those on the fringes of society.
