Psalm 109:22

Hebrew Bible

20 May the Lord repay my accusers in this way, those who say evil things about me. 21 O Sovereign Lord, intervene on my behalf for the sake of your reputation. Because your loyal love is good, deliver me. 22 For I am oppressed and needy, and my heart beats violently within me. 23 I am fading away like a shadow at the end of the day; I am shaken off like a locust. 24 I am so starved my knees shake; I have turned into skin and bones.

Proverbs 31:9

Hebrew Bible

7 let them drink and forget their poverty, and remember their misery no more. 8 Open your mouth on behalf of those unable to speak, for the legal rights of all the dying. 9 Open your mouth, judge in righteousness, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. 10 Who can find a wife of noble character? For her value is far more than rubies. 11 Her husband’s heart has trusted her, and he does not lack the dividends.
