According to Strong's Hebrew and Greek dictionary, "perverteth" indeed means "to stretch" or "to bend away".

In Latin Vulgate, the latin word of "perverteth" is "pervertit".

"pervertit" means "overthrow; subvert; destroy, ruin, corrupt"

I guess, "perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow" means "to destroy (or to bend away)  justice from strangers, fatherless and widows". In other word, "cursed he be that made justice for strangers, fatherless and widow has been corrupted."

Hope this help

Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow. According to this passage it means to stretch or spread out. So I guess that means that the judgment has become lienant and useless. Of none effect. To the point of not being able to recognize there is judgment for these people. I hope this helps. Sorry.
