Abraham complained to Abimelech because of a water well, which Abimelech’s servants had violently taken away.

He who doesn’t slander with his tongue,
nor does evil to his friend,
nor casts slurs against his fellow man;
In whose eyes a vile man is despised,

Her lamp doesn’t go out by night.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household;
for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

She laughs at the time to come.
She looks well to the ways of her household,
and doesn’t eat the bread of idleness.
The Lord Yahweh has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away backward.
He is near who justifies me; who will bring charges against me? Let us stand up together: who is my adversary? Let him come near to me.
Behold, the Lord Yahweh will help me; who is he who shall condemn me? Behold, they all shall wax old as a garment, the moth shall eat them up.
