    for the food of your household
    and nourishment for your servant-girls.

    and its stone wall was broken down.
32 Then I saw and considered it;
    I looked and received instruction.

    a little folding of the hands to rest,
34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
    and want, like an armed warrior.

Deuteronomy 15:7-10 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

If there is among you anyone in need, a member of your community in any of your towns within the land that the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hard-hearted or tight-fisted toward your needy neighbor. You should rather open your hand, willingly lending enough to meet the need, whatever it may be. Be careful that you do not entertain a mean thought, thinking, “The seventh year, the year of remission, is near,” and therefore view your needy neighbor with hostility and give nothing; your neighbor might cry to the Lord against you, and you would incur guilt. 10 Give liberally and be ungrudging when you do so, for on this account the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake.

20 whose loins have not blessed me,
    and who was not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;
