2 Corinthians 8:2; 2 Corinthians 8:9 (New International Version)
Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
