I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
1 Samuel 2:8
He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the beggar from the rubbish, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he has set the world upon them.
But he saves the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.
For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.
He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap;
Your congregation has dwelt therein: you, O God, have provided of your goodness for the poor.
He delivers the poor in his affliction, and opens their ears in oppression.
So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he hears the cry of the afflicted.
Yet sets he the poor on high from affliction, and makes their families like a flock.
The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD lightens both their eyes.
