Proverbs 19:17

Hebrew Bible

14 A house and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord. 15 Laziness brings on a deep sleep, and the idle person will go hungry. 16 The one who obeys commandments guards his life;the one who despises his ways will die. 17 The one who is gracious to the poor lends to the Lord, and the Lord will repay him for his good deed. 18 Discipline your child, for there is hope,but do not set your heart on causing his death. 19 A person with great anger bears the penalty, but if you deliver him from it once, you will have to do it again.

Matthew 25:40

New Testament

37 Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or naked and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the king will answer them, ‘I tell you the truth, just as you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did it for me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels!
