How happy is he that is attentive to the poor, In the day of calamity, will Yahweh deliver him:
He that sheweth contempt for his neighbour, sinneth, but, he that sheweth favour to the afflicted, how happy is he!
They shall not be ashamed in the time of calamity, and, in the days of famine, shall they be filled.
When there cometh to be among you a needy person any one of thy brethren within any one of thy gates, in thy land, which Yahweh thy God is giving unto thee, thou shalt not harden thy heart nor shut thy hand from thy needy brother;
Because I used to deliver the oppressed who was crying out for aid, the fatherless also, and him that had no helper;
If I withheld - from pleasure - the poor, or, the eyes of the widow, I dimmed;
Many are the misfortunes of the righteous, But, out of them all, doth Yahweh rescue him.
All day long, is he showing favour and lending, his seed, therefore, shall have a blessing.
But, the deliverance of the righteous, is from Yahweh, their refuge in a time of distress.
Vindicate the weak and the fatherless, The oppressed and the poor, see righted;
He hath scattered abroad, he hath given to the needy, His righteousness, standeth for aye, His horn, shall be exalted in honour.
The wrath of a king, meaneth messengers of death, but, a man who is wise, will appease it.
A lender to Yahweh, is one who sheweth favour to the poor, and, his good deed, He will pay him back.
Cast thy bread-corn, upon the face of the waters, - for, after many days, shalt thou find it:
Yet remember thy Creator, in the days of thy vigour, - or ever come in, the days of discomfort, and the years arrive, in which thou shalt say - I have, in them, no pleasure;
Is it not to break unto the hungry, thy bread, And the thrust-out oppressed, that thou bring into a home, - When thou seest one naked, that thou cover him, And from thine own flesh, shalt not hide thyself?
Then, will the king say to those on his right hand: Come ye, the blessed of my Father! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;
For, always, have ye, the destitute, with you, and whensoever ye please, ye can, unto them, at any timedo well! But, me, not, always, have ye.
But, whensoever, an entertainment, thou mayest be making, invite the destitute, the tried, the lame, the blind;
In all things, I gave you to understand, that, thus toiling, it behoves to be helping the weak, also to be keeping in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, that, he himself, said - Happy is it, rather to give than to receive!
2 Corinthians 9:8-14
Moreover God is able to cause, every gracious gift, to superabound unto you, in order that, having in every thing, at every time, every kind of sufficiency of your own, ye may be superabounding unto every good work;
Only that we should remember, the destitute, - as to which I had given diligence, this very thing, to do.
1 Thessalonians 5:14
But we exhort you, brethren - admonish the disorderly, soothe them of little soul, help the weak, be longsuffering towards all:
For, not unrighteous, is God, to be forgetful of your work and of the love which ye have shewn forth for his name, in that ye have ministered unto the saints, and are ministering,
For, the judgment, will be without mercy, unto him that hath shewed no mercy: Mercy, boasteth, over judgment.
Because thou didst keep my word of endurance, I also, will keep thee out of the hour of trial, which is about to come upon the whole habitable world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
