Deuteronomy 15:10

Deuteronomy 15:10

Thou shall surely give him
Or lend to him; though lending in such a case and circumstances, that person being extremely poor, and the year of release at hand, is the same as giving. Jarchi remarks that money must be given him, even a hundred times if he asks it; but the limitation is to what he wants, and what is sufficient for his present wants, ( Deuteronomy 15:8 )

and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him;
grieved at parting with his money he has little or no hope of seeing again, grudging it to him to whom it is given; when, on the other hand, it should he given freely and cheerfully, for God loves a cheerful giver:

because that for this thing the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all
thy works, and in all thou puttest thine hand unto;
that is, for lending or giving largely, liberally, and cheerfully, to persons in distress; see ( Proverbs 11:24 Proverbs 11:25 ) ( Isaiah 32:8 ) ( 2 Corinthians 9:6-9 ) .
