The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
(Psalm 10:2)

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.

Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
(Psalm 14:6)

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. 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.  He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
(Psalm 10:8-10)

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. A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
(Psalm 37:14,16,21,26)

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion. He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
(Psalm 112:4,5,9)

Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever: Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:
(Psalm 146:5,7)

Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.
(Proverbs 21:13)

The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all. The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor. Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate: For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.
(Proverbs 22:2,7,9,22,23)

For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
(Proverbs 23:21)

A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food. Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich. He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor. The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out. As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people. He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough. He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
(Proverbs 28:3,6,8,11,15,19,27)

The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.

The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD lighteneth both their eyes. The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.
(Proverbs 29:13,14)

There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.
(Proverbs 30:14)

Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
(Proverbs 31:9,20)

Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit. Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.
(Ecclesiastes 4:6,13)

If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.
(Ecclesiastes 5:8)

For what hath the wise more than the fool? what hath the poor, that knoweth to walk before the living?
(Ecclesiastes 6:8)

The Bible and Poor

Money isn't everything. "Some rich people are poor, and some poor people have great wealth! Being kidnapped and held for ransom never worries the poor man!" Proverbs 13:7-8, TLB.

While the world may honor the rich—don't be surprised if God honors the poor. "Listen to me, dear brothers: God has chosen poor people to be rich in faith, and the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs, for that is the gift God has promised to all those who love Him." James 2:5, TLB.

We should be eager to help the poor. "The only thing they did suggest was that we must always remember to help the poor, and I, too, was eager for that." Galatians 2:10, TLB.

Ignoring the needy is a sin. "For many and great are your sins. I know them all so well. You are the enemies of everything good; you take bribes; you refuse justice to the poor." Amos 5:12, TLB.

Helping the poor brings God's blessing. "God blesses those who are kind to the poor. He helps them out of their troubles." Psalm 41:1, TLB.

We honor God by caring for the poor. "Anyone who oppresses the poor is insulting God who made them. To help the poor is to honor God." Proverbs 14:31, TLB.

The church should help to support the poor who have no families. "The church should care for widows who are poor and alone in the world, if they are looking to God for His help and spending much time in prayer; but not if they are spending their time running around gossiping, seeking only pleasure and thus ruining their souls." I Timothy 5:5-6, TLB.

God promises great rewards for those who help the poor. "I want you to share your food with the hungry and bring right into your own homes those who are helpless, poor, and destitute. Clothe those who are cold and don't hide from relatives who need your help. If you do these things, God will shed His own glorious light upon you. He will heal you; your godliness will lead you forward, and goodness will be a shield from behind… .Feed the hungry! Help those in trouble! Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you shall be as bright as day. And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy you with all good things, and keep you healthy too."  Isaiah 58:7-11, TLB.

We are to act on behalf of the poor. "I want to see a mighty flood of justice—a torrent of doing good." Amos 5:24, TLB.5
