One of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, "Your servant, my husband, has died. You know that your servant feared the LORD. Now the creditor is coming to take my two children as his slaves."
2
Elisha asked her, "What can I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?" She said, "Your servant has nothing in the house except a jar of oil."
3
Then he said, "Go and borrow empty containers from everyone-- from all your neighbors. Do not get just a few.
4
Then go in and shut the door behind you and your sons, and pour oil into all these containers. Set the full ones to one side."
5
So she left. After she had shut the door behind her and her sons, they kept bringing her [containers], and she kept pouring.

There was a widespread outcry from the people and their wives against their Jewish countrymen.
2
Some were saying, "We, our sons, and our daughters are numerous. Let us get grain so that we can eat and live."
3
Others were saying, "We are mortgaging our fields, vineyards, and homes to get grain during the famine."
4
Still others were saying, "We have borrowed money to pay the king's tax on our fields and vineyards.
5
We and our children are [just] like our countrymen and their children, yet we are subjecting our sons and daughters to slavery. Some of our daughters are already enslaved, but we are powerless because our fields and vineyards belong to others."

9
Be careful that there isn't this wicked thought in your heart, 'The seventh year, the year of canceling debts, is near,' and you are stingy toward your poor brother and give him [nothing]. He will cry out to the LORD against you, and you will be guilty.
10
Give to him, and don't have a stingy heart when you give, and because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you do.
11
For there will never cease to be poor people in the land; that is why I am commanding you, 'You must willingly open your hand to your afflicted and poor brother in your land.'
Job 31:16-20
16
If I have refused the wishes of the poor or let the widow's eyes go blind,
17
if I have eaten my few crumbs alone without letting the fatherless eat any of it--
18
for from my youth, I raised him as [his] father, and since the day I was born I guided the widow--
19
if I have seen anyone dying for lack of clothing or a needy person without a cloak,
20
if he did not bless me while warming himself with the fleece from my sheep,

7
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, to bring the poor and homeless into your house, to clothe the naked when you see him, and to not ignore your own flesh [and blood]?
8
Then your light will appear like the dawn, and your recovery will come quickly. Your righteousness will go before you, and the LORD's glory will be your rear guard.
9
At that time, when you call, the LORD will answer; when you cry out, He will say: Here I am. If you get rid of the yoke from those around you, the finger-pointing and malicious speaking,
10
and if you offer yourself to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted one, then your light will shine in the darkness, and your night will be like noonday.

6
Remember this: the person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously.
7
Each person should do as he has decided in his heart-- not out of regret or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.
8
And God is able to make every grace overflow to you, so that in every way, always having everything you need, you may excel in every good work.

As it is written: He has scattered; He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever.
