1 Samuel 2:7
The LORD makes poor and makes rich; he brings low and lifts up.
Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the bread of my judgment:
Contentment is unto men to show mercy, but it is better to do it unto the poor than to the liar.
The rich man's wealth is his strong city; the weakness of the poor is their poverty.
They drink and forget their need and remember their misery no more.
If thou hast nothing to pay, why should they take away thy bed from under thee?
And if he is not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring for the guilt of his sin two turtledoves or two young pigeons unto the LORD, one for his sin and the other for a burnt offering.
And if she is not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons: the one for the burnt offering and the other as sin; and the priest shall reconcile her, and she shall be clean.
But if he is not able to bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for his sin; he shall put no oil upon it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon, for it is sin.
But if he is poor, and cannot get so much; then he shall take one lamb for expiation of the guilt to be waved, to reconcile himself, and one tenth deal of fine flour mingled with oil for a present, and a log of oil;
The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give the offering unto the LORD to make reconciliation for your souls.
This is the law of the one who has had the plague of leprosy, whose hand is not able to get that which is prescribed for his purification.
