POOR

Psalms 12:5 41:1-3, especially cared for in the Jewish dispensation, Exodus 23:6 Proverbs 14:31, and even more so under the gospel, Matthew 25:42-45 James 2:5. The slight offerings required of them by the law were as acceptable as the hecatombs of the rich, Leviticus 5:7-13 Mark 12:41-44. The gleanings of the fields, the olive trees, and the vines, were to be left for them, Leviticus 19:9 Deuteronomy 24:19 Ruth 2:2. Every seventh year, the spontaneous products of the ground were free to all, Leviticus 25:7; and in the Jubilee their alienated inheritance returned to their possession. Compare also Leviticus 25:1-55 Deuteronomy 24:1-22. Neglect and oppression of the poor were severely reproved by the prophets, Isaiah 10:2 Jeremiah 5:28 Amos 2:6; but charity to the poor was an eminent virtue among primitive Christians, Matthew 6:2-4 Luke 10:33-35 19:8 Acts 9:36-39 10:2 11:29-30.
