If thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger,
or a sojourner; that he may live with thee. Leviticus 25:35
If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee,
thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother. But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto hi
m. Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye
be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the Lord against thee, and it be sin unto thee.
Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the Lord thy
God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.
For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother,
to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land. Deuteronomy 15:7-11
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. Psalm 82:3-4
He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack. Proverbs 28:27
We should remember the poor. Galatians 2:10
