'Begging' in the Bible
And they come to Jericho, and as he was going out from Jericho, and his disciples and a large crowd, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, the blind man, sat by the wayside begging.
and having heard of Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, begging him that he might come and save his bondman.
And it came to pass when he came into the neighbourhood of Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the wayside begging.
But they were urgent with loud voices, begging that he might be crucified. And their voices and those of the chief priests prevailed.
The neighbours therefore, and those who used to see him before, that he was a beggar, said, Is not this he that was sitting and begging?
