Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly; your vindicator shall go before you, the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry for help, and he will say, Here I am.

Then he will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.'
