Treatment of the Poor and Needy



   Psa 41:1    Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD 
   will deliver him in time of trouble. 

   Psa 82:3-4   Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the 
   afflicted and needy.  Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out 
   of the hand of the wicked. 

   Prov 14:21   He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he 
   that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he. 

   Prov 14:31   He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: 
   but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor. 

   Prov 19:17   He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the 
   LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. 

   Prov 21:13   Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he 
   also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.

   Prov 17:5  Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he
   that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished. 

   Prov 28:27   He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he 
   that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse. 

   Mat 5:42   Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would 
   borrow of thee turn not thou away. 

   Mat 19:21   Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and 
   sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have 
   treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 

   Matthew 25:31-46    "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, 
   and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the 
   throne of His glory. {32} "All the nations will be gathered 
   before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a 
   shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. {33} "And He will 
   set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 
   {34} "Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, 
   you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you 
   from the foundation of the world: {35} 'for I was hungry and 
   you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a 
   stranger and you took Me in; {36} 'I was naked and you clothed 
   Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came 
   to Me.' {37} "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 
   'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and 
   give You drink? {38} 'When did we see You a stranger and take 
   You in, or naked and clothe You? {39} 'Or when did we see You 
   sick, or in prison, and come to You?' {40} "And the King will 
   answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as 
   you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it 
   to Me.' {41} "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 
   'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared 
   for the devil and his angels: {42} 'for I was hungry and you 
   gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; {43} 
   'I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did 
   not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.' 
   {44} "Then they also will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did 
   we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or 
   in prison, and did not minister to You?' {45} "Then He will 
   answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you 
   did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it 
   to Me.' {46} "And these will go away into everlasting 
   punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." 

   Luke 3:11   He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two 
   coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath 
   meat, let him do likewise. 

   Luke 12:33   Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide 
   yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens 
   that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth 
   corrupteth. 

   Luke 14:12-14   Then said he also to him that bade him, When 
   thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy 
   brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest 
   they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee. But 
   when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, 
   the blind: And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense 
   thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the 
   just. 

   James 1:27   Pure religion and undefiled before God and the 
   Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their 
   affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. 

   Job 29:12-17 Because I delivered the poor who cried out, the 
   fatherless and the one who had no helper. The blessing of a 
   perishing man came upon me and I caused the widow's heart to sing
   for joy. I put on righteousness and it clothed me; my justice was 
   like a robe and turban. I was eyes to the blind and I was feet to 
   the lame. I was a father to the poor and I searched out the case
   I did not know. I broke the fangs of the wicked and plucked the 
   victim from his teeth.
