EXO 22:25 If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou

shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.

EXO 22:26 If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, thou shalt

deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:

EXO 22:27 For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin:

wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that

I will hear; for I am gracious.

EXO 23:3 Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.

EXO 23:6 Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.

EXO 23:11 But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the

poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field shall

eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, and with thy oliveyard.

LEV 19:9 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap

the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy


LEV 19:10 And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather

every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I

am the LORD your God.

LEV 19:15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect

the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness

shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

LEV 25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his

possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that

which his brother sold.

LEV 25:26 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem


LEV 25:27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the

overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his


LEV 25:28 But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that which is sold

shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubile:

and in the jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.

LEV 25:35 And 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.

LEV 25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy

brother may live with thee.

LEV 25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy

victuals for increase.

LEV 25:39 And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold

unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant:

LEV 25:40 But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee,

and shall serve thee unto the year of jubile.

LEV 25:41 And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his children with

him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his

fathers shall he return.

LEV 25:42 For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of

Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen.

LEV 25:43 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigour; but shalt fear thy God.

DEU 14:28 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of

thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates:

DEU 14:29 And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,)

and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates,

shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the LORD thy God may bless thee

in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.

DEU 15:2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth

ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his

neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release.

DEU 15:3 Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is thine

with thy brother thine hand shall release;

DEU 15:4 Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall greatly

bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to

possess it:

DEU 15:5 Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to

observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.

DEU 15:6 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou

shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign

over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.

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 24:12 And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:

DEU 24:13 In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun

goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee: and it shall

be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God.

DEU 24:14 Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and needy,

whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in thy land within

thy gates:

DEU 24:15 At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go

down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against

thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee.

DEU 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall

the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death

for his own sin.

DEU 24:17 Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the

fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge:

DEU 24:18 But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and the

LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing.

DEU 24:19 When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a

sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the

stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless

thee in all the work of thine hands.

DEU 24:20 When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs

again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

DEU 24:21 When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean

it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the


DEU 26:12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine

increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto

the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat

within thy gates, and be filled;

DEU 26:13 Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought away the

hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and

unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy

commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not transgressed thy

commandments, neither have I forgotten them.

1SA 2:7 The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.

NEH 5:1 And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against

their brethren the Jews.

NEH 5:2 For there were that said, We, our sons, and our daughters, are many:

therefore we take up corn for them, that we may eat, and live.

NEH 5:3 Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards,

and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.

NEH 5:4 There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king's

tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.

NEH 5:5 Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as

their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be

servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already: neither is

it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.

NEH 5:6 And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words.

NEH 5:7 Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers,

and said unto them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great

assembly against them.

NEH 5:8 And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren

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 5:13 Also I shook my lap, and said, So God shake out every man from his

house, and from his labour, that performeth not this promise, even thus be he

shaken out, and emptied. And all the congregation said, Amen, and praised the

LORD. And the people did 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 8:12 And all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to send

portions, and to make great mirth, because they had understood the words that

were declared unto them.

JOB 5:15 But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the

hand of the mighty.

JOB 20:19 Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor; because he hath

violently taken away an house which he builded not;

JOB 20:20 Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of

that which he desired.

JOB 20:21 There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for

his goods.

JOB 22:6 For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought, and stripped

the naked of their clothing.

JOB 22:7 Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink, and thou hast

withholden bread from the hungry.

JOB 22:9 Thou hast sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have

been broken.

JOB 22:10 Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden fear troubleth


JOB 22:11 Or darkness, that thou canst not see; and abundance of waters cover


JOB 24:4 They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide

themselves together.

JOB 24:7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no

covering in the cold.

JOB 24:8 They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock

for want of a shelter.

JOB 24:9 They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the


JOB 24:10 They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the

sheaf from the hungry;

JOB 29:11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me,

it gave witness to me:

JOB 29:12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him

that had none to help him.

JOB 29:13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I

caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.

JOB 29:15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.

JOB 29:16 I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched


JOB 30:25 Did not I weep for him that was in trouble? was not my soul grieved

for the poor?

JOB 31:15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion

us in the womb?

JOB 31:16 If I have withheld the poor from their desire, or have caused the

eyes of the widow to fail;

JOB 31:17 Or have eaten my morsel myself alone, and the fatherless hath not

eaten thereof;

JOB 31:18 (For from my youth he was brought up with me, as with a father, and I

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;

JOB 31:21 If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, when I saw my

help in the gate:

JOB 31:22 Then let mine arm fall from my shoulder blade, and mine arm be broken

from the bone.

JOB 34:18 Is it fit to say to a king, Thou art wicked? and to princes, Ye are


JOB 34:19 How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor

regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.

JOB 34:28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he

heareth the cry of the afflicted.

JOB 36:6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the


JOB 36:15 He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in


PSA 9:18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the

poor shall not perish for ever.

PSA 10:2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in

the devices that they have imagined.

PSA 10:8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places

doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.

PSA 10:9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to

catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.

PSA 10:10 He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his

strong ones.

PSA 10:14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite

it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of

the fatherless.

PSA 12:5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will

I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.

PSA 14:6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his


PSA 34:6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all

his troubles.

PSA 35:10 All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest

the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from

him that spoileth him?

PSA 37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast

down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

PSA 37:16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many


PSA 37:21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth

mercy, and giveth.

PSA 37:26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

PSA 41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in

time of trouble.

PSA 41:2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be

blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his


PSA 41:3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt

make all his bed in his sickness.

PSA 68:10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of

thy goodness for the poor.

PSA 69:33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.

PSA 72:2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with


PSA 72:4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of

the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

PSA 72:12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him

that hath no helper.

PSA 72:13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the


PSA 72:14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious

shall their blood be in his sight.

PSA 74:21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise

thy name.

PSA 82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

PSA 82:4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

PSA 102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their


PSA 107:9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with


PSA 107:31 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his

wonderful works to the children of men!

PSA 107:36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a

city for habitation;

PSA 109:16 Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the

poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.

PSA 109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from

those that condemn his soul.

PSA 112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious,

and full of compassion, and righteous.

PSA 112:5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs

with discretion.

PSA 112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness

endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

PSA 113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of

the dunghill;

PSA 132:15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with


PSA 140:12 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and

the right of the poor.

PSA 146:5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in

the LORD his God:

PSA 146:7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the

hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:

PRO 10:15 The rich man's wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor

is their poverty.

spoiled them.

drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

AMO 4:2 The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come

upon you, that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with


AMO 5:11 Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor, and ye take

from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not

dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine

of them.

AMO 5:12 For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they

afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate

from their right.

AMO 8:4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the

land to fail,

AMO 8:6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes;

yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?

HAB 3:14 Thou didst strike through with his staves the head of his villages:

they came out as a whirlwind to scatter me: their rejoicing was as to devour the

poor secretly.

ZEP 3:12 I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people,

and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.

ZEC 7:10 And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the

poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.

ZEC 11:7 And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock.

And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called

Bands; and I fed the flock.

MAT 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

MAT 5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee

turn not thou away.

MAT 11:5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are

cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the

gospel preached to them.

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.

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 25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye

gave me no drink:

MAT 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as

ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

MAT 26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.

MAR 12:43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I

say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have

cast into the treasury:

MAR 12:44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did

cast in all that she had, even all her living.

MAR 14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do

them good: but me ye have not always.

LUK 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.

LUK 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to

preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to

preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set

at liberty them that are bruised,

LUK 6:20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye

poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

LUK 6:35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing

again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the

Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

LUK 11:41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all

things are clean unto you.

LUK 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.

LUK 14:12 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 recompence be made thee.

LUK 14:13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame,

the blind:

LUK 14:14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou

shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

LUK 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his

gate, full of sores,

LUK 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's

table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

LUK 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the

angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

LUK 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou

one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt

have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

LUK 19:8 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of

my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false

accusation, I restore him fourfold.

JOH 12:6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a

thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

ACT 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to

support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It

is more blessed to give than to receive.

ROM 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the

renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and

perfect, will of God.

ROM 12:8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it

with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with


ROM 12:13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

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.

2CO 6:10 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as

having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

2CO 9:5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they

would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your bounty, whereof ye had

notice before, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not as

of covetousness.

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.

GAL 2:10 Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I

also was forward to do.

GAL 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men,

especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

EPH 4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working

with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that


1TI 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ

might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter

believe on him to life everlasting.

1TI 5:9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old,

having been the wife of one man.

1TI 5:10 Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if

she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have

relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

HEB 13:3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which

suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

JAM 1:9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:

JAM 1:10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the

grass he shall pass away.

JAM 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.

JAM 2:2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly

apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;

JAM 2:3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto

him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or

sit here under my footstool:

JAM 2:4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil


JAM 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this

world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them

that love him?

JAM 2:6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw

you before the judgment seats?

JAM 2:7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

JAM 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love

thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:

JAM 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of

the law as transgressors.

JAM 2:15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

JAM 2:16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and

filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the

body; what doth it profit?

JAM 5:4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields,

which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have

reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

1JO 3:17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and

shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in


1JO 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in

deed and in truth.

1JO 3:19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our

hearts before him.
