How then to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich man more than the poor? for they are all the work of his hands.
For the needy one shall not be forgotten alway; the hope of the meek shall not perish for ever.
For Jehovah heareth the needy, and despiseth not his prisoners.
The afflicted and the needy seek water, and there is none; their tongue faileth for thirst: I, Jehovah, will answer them, I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
I know that Jehovah will maintain the cause of the afflicted one, the right of the needy.
But he delivereth the afflicted in his affliction, and openeth their ear in their oppression.
All my bones shall say, Jehovah, who is like unto thee, who deliverest the afflicted from one stronger than he, yea, the afflicted and the needy from him that spoileth him!
Because of the oppression of the afflicted, because of the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith Jehovah, I will set him in safety, at whom they puff.
For he standeth at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those that judge his soul.
1 Samuel 2:8
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust; from the dung-hill he lifteth up the needy, To set him among nobles; and he maketh them inherit a throne of glory; For the pillars of the earth are Jehovah's, and he hath set the world upon them.
But he secureth the needy one on high from affliction, and maketh him families like flocks.
Thy flock hath dwelt therein: thou hast prepared in thy goodness, for the afflicted, O God!
Who executeth judgment for the oppressed, who giveth bread to the hungry. Jehovah looseth the prisoners;
He will regard the prayer of the destitute one, and not despise their prayer.
Ye have shamed the counsel of the afflicted, because Jehovah was his refuge.
