Bible: Deut 15:8-11

15:8 Instead, you must be sure to open your hand to him and generously lend 1  him whatever he needs. 2  15:9 Be careful lest you entertain the wicked thought that the seventh year, the year of cancellation of debts, has almost arrived, and your attitude 3  be wrong toward your impoverished fellow Israelite 4  and you do not lend 5  him anything; he will cry out to the Lord against you and you will be regarded as having sinned. 6  15:10 You must by all means lend 7  to him and not be upset by doing it, 8  for because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you attempt. 15:11 There will never cease to be some poor people in the land; therefore, I am commanding you to make sure you open 9  your hand to your fellow Israelites 10  who are needy and poor in your land.
