9 He who has a generous eye will be blessed, For he gives of his bread to the poor.

Proverbs 22:9 (NKJV)

9 Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor.

Proverbs 22:9 (NLT)

From the Nelson Study Bible:

The words expressing the idea of generosity in this verse are “a good eye.” A good eye observes the needs of others first. A bad eye sees only its own self-interest.
