For He stands at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who would condemn him.
He saves the needy from their sharp words and from the clutches of the powerful.
So the poor have hope, and injustice shuts its mouth.
"I will seek the lost, bring back the strays, bandage the injured, and strengthen the weak, but I will destroy the fat and the strong. I will shepherd them with justice.
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, because the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
[[For the Son of Man has come to save the lost.]]
Listen, my dear brothers: Didn't God choose the poor in this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that He has promised to those who love Him?
Yet you dishonored that poor man. Don't the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts?
