Verse of the Day: Don’t Ignore the Cries of the Poor

July 5, 2007


13 Whoever shuts his ears to the cry of the poor

Will also cry himself and not be heard.

Proverbs 21:13 (NKJV)

13 Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor

will be ignored in their own time of need.

Proverbs 21:13 (NLT)

From the Life Application Bible:

We should work to meet the needs of the poor and protect their rights for someday we may be in need of such services ourselves.

From the Nelson Study Bible:

A person who is indifferent to people in need will find no one helping him when he calls out for help.
