Blessed is he who considers a poor man. LORD will deliver him in the day of evil.
He who despises his neighbor sins, but he who has pity on the poor, happy is he.
They shall not be put to shame in the time of evil, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
If there be with thee a poor man, one of thy brothers, within any of thy gates in thy land which LORD thy God gives thee, thou shall not harden thy heart, nor shut thy hand from thy poor brother,
Because I delivered the poor who cried, also the fatherless who had none to help him.
If I have withheld the poor from [their] desire, or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail,
But the salvation of the righteous is of LORD. He is their stronghold in the time of trouble,
Judge the poor man and the orphan. Do justice to the afflicted and destitute man.
He has scattered, he has given to the poor. His righteousness endures forever. His horn shall be exalted with honor.
He who has pity upon a poor man lends to LORD, and he will repay him his good deed.
Cast thy bread upon the waters, for thou shall find it after many days.
Remember also thy Creator in the days of thy youth, before the evil days come, and the years draw nigh, when thou shall say, I have no pleasure in them,
Is it not to deal thy bread to a hungry man, and that thou bring the poor who are cast out to thy house, when thou see a naked man, that thou cover him, and that thou not hide thyself from thine own flesh?
Then the King will say to those at his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For ye always have the poor with you, and whenever ye may desire ye can do them well, but ye do not always have me.
But when thou make a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind,
I gave you a glimpse of all things, that so laboring ye ought to aid the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that he himself said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
And God is able to abound all grace for you, so that always in everything having all sufficiency, ye may abound for every good work,
only that we should remember the poor, which this same thing I also was eager to do.
And we encourage you, brothers, admonish the unruly, strengthen the weak-spirited, help the infirmed, be patient toward all.
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work, and the labor of love that ye showed toward his name, having served the sanctified, and who are serving.
Because thou keep the word of my perseverance, I also will keep thee from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole inhabited world, to try those who dwell upon the earth.
