1 Samuel 2:8
He raises up the poor out of the dust and lifts up the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with nobles and inherit the throne of glory. For the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, and He has set the world upon them.

So that they caused the cry of the poor to come to Him, and He heard the cry of the afflicted.
Yet He raises the poor and needy from affliction and makes their families like a flock.
The poor man and the oppressor meet together -- "the Lord gives light to the eyes of both.
