  • This poor soul cried, and was heard by the Lord,
    and was saved from every trouble.
  • Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
    give me neither poverty nor riches;
    feed me with the food that I need.
  • If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
  • The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
    because he has anointed me
    to bring good news to the poor.
    He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
    and recovery of sight to the blind,
    to let the oppressed go free.
  • Because I delivered the poor who cried,
    and the orphan who had no helper.
    The blessing of the wretched came upon me,
    and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
  • What is desirable in a person is loyalty,
    and it is better to be poor than a liar.
  • Wealth is a ransom for a person's life,
    but the poor get no threats.
  • The spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
    because the Lord has anointed me;
    he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed,
    to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim liberty to the captives,
    and release to the prisoners.
