Daily Bible Verse - 11/20/2007 - Proverbs 19:17

NIV He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD,
and he will reward him for what he has done.
KJV He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
NASB One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD,
And He will repay him for his good deed.
Proverbs 19:17
Charity to the poor and needy is perceived in this verse as a lending to God. If one is to lend to anyone, then lend to Him. He will repay. Yahweh's concern for the poor is well-attested in Scripture (e.g., Deut. 10:18, 19).
