DEU 15:7 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:
DEU 15:8 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend
him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth.
DEU 15:9 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.
DEU 15:10 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.
DEU 15:11 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.
DEU 15:12 And if thy brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be sold unto
thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt let him go
free from thee.
DEU 15:13 And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not let him
go away empty:
DEU 15:14 Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of thy
floor, and out of thy winepress: of that wherewith the LORD thy God hath blessed
thee thou shalt give unto him.
DEU 15:15 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of
Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee: therefore I command thee this thing
JDG 19:16 And, behold, there came an old man from his work out of the field at
even, which was also of mount Ephraim; and he sojourned in Gibeah: but the men
of the place were Benjamites.
JDG 19:17 And when he had lifted up his eyes, he saw a wayfaring man in the
street of the city: and the old man said, Whither goest thou? and whence comest
JDG 19:18 And he said unto him, We are passing from Bethlehemjudah toward the
side of mount Ephraim; from thence am I: and I went to Bethlehemjudah, but I am
now going to the house of the LORD; and there is no man that receiveth me to
JDG 19:19 Yet there is both straw and provender for our asses; and there is
bread and wine also for me, and for thy handmaid, and for the young man which is
with thy servants: there is no want of any thing.
JDG 19:20 And the old man said, Peace be with thee; howsoever let all thy wants
lie upon me; only lodge not in the street.
JDG 19:21 So he brought him into his house, and gave provender unto the asses:
and they washed their feet, and did eat and drink.

the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren?
or shall they be sold unto us? Then held they their peace, and found nothing to
NEH 5:9 Also I said, It is not good that ye do: ought ye not to walk in the
fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen our enemies?
NEH 5:10 I likewise, and my brethren, and my servants, might exact of them
money and corn: I pray you, let us leave off this usury.
NEH 5:11 Restore, I pray you, to them, even this day, their lands, their
vineyards, their oliveyards, and their houses, also the hundredth part of the
money, and of the corn, the wine, and the oil, that ye exact of them.
NEH 5:12 Then said they, We will restore them, and will require nothing of
them; so will we do as thou sayest. Then I called the priests, and took an oath
of them, that they should do according to this promise.
NEH 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet,
and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy
unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
NEH 8:11 So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for
the day is holy; neither be ye grieved.
JOB 29:11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me,

that had none to help him.

have guided her from my mother's womb;)
JOB 31:19 If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, or any poor without
JOB 31:20 If his loins have not blessed me, and if he were not warmed with the
fleece of my sheep;

from the bone.

afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as
the noon day:

MAT 25:35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave
me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
MAT 25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in
prison, and ye came unto me.
MAT 25:37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee
an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

MAT 25:39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was
his own; but they had all things common.
ACT 4:33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of
the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
ACT 4:34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were

ACT 11:29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to
send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea:
ROM 15:26 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain
contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.
ROM 15:27 It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the
Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also
to minister unto them in carnal things.
1CO 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give
my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
1CO 16:1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to
the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
1CO 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in
store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
1CO 16:3 And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them
will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
2CO 8:1 Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on
the churches of Macedonia;
2CO 8:2 How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and
their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.
2CO 8:3 For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they
were willing of themselves;
2CO 8:4 Praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take
upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.
2CO 8:5 And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to
the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.
2CO 8:6 Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also
finish in you the same grace also.
2CO 8:7 Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and
knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in
this grace also.
2CO 8:8 I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of
others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.
2CO 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was
rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be
2CO 8:10 And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have
begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.
2CO 8:11 Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness
to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
2CO 8:12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that
a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
2CO 8:13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
2CO 8:14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a
supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want:
that there may be equality:
2CO 8:15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he
that had gathered little had no lack.
2CO 8:24 Wherefore shew ye to them, and before the churches, the proof of your
love, and of our boasting on your behalf.
2CO 9:1 For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me
to write to you:
2CO 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly;
and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
2CO 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not
grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
2CO 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always
having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
2CO 9:9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor:
his righteousness remaineth for ever.
2CO 9:10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your
food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your
2CO 9:11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth
through us thanksgiving to God.
2CO 9:12 For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of
the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;
2CO 9:13 Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for
your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal
distribution unto them, and unto all men;
2CO 9:14 And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding
grace of God in you.
2CO 9:15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
GAL 2:10 Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I
also was forward to do.
PHI 4:10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of
me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked
PHI 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever
state I am, therewith to be content.
PHI 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where
and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to
abound and to suffer need.
PHI 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
PHI 4:14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my
PHI 4:15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel,
when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning
giving and receiving, but ye only.
PHI 4:16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
PHI 4:17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to
PHI 4:18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus
the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice
acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
1TI 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own
house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
1TI 5:16 If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them,
and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows
1TI 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to
distribute, willing to communicate;
2TI 1:16 The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft
refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain:
2TI 1:17 But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found
2TI 1:18 The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that
day: and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very
HEB 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love,
which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints,
and do minister.
HEB 13:16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such
sacrifices God is well pleased.
