18 Bible Verses about Poverty

In all labor there is profit,
But idle chatter leads only to poverty.
Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound.
The rich rules over the poor,
And the borrower is servant to the lender.
Remove falsehood and lies far from me;
Give me neither poverty nor riches—
Feed me with the food allotted to me.
Thus says the Lord of hosts:
‘Execute true justice,
Show mercy and compassion
Everyone to his brother.
Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless,
The alien or the poor.
Let none of you plan evil in his heart
Against his brother.’
Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and needy.
What is desired in a man is kindness,
And a poor man is better than a liar.
As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed.
The Lord makes poor and makes rich;
He brings low and lifts up.
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The ransom of a man’s life is his riches,
But the poor does not hear rebuke.
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.
Bible verse of the day
You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
