Sirach 35:15-17, 20-22

15   and do not rely on a dishonest sacrifice;
for the Lord is the judge,
   and with him there is no partiality.
16 He will not show partiality to the poor;
   but he will listen to the prayer of one who is wronged.
17 He will not ignore the supplication of the orphan,
   or the widow when she pours out her complaint.
20 One whose service is pleasing to the Lord will be accepted,
   and his prayer will reach to the clouds.
21 The prayer of the humble pierces the clouds,
   and it will not rest until it reaches its goal;
it will not desist until the Most High responds
22   and does justice to the righteous, and executes judgement.
Indeed, the Lord will not delay,
   and like a warrior* will not be patient
until he crushes the loins of the unmerciful
