Proverbs 19:7; Proverbs 19:17 (New International Version)
A poor man is shunned by all his relatives-- how much more do his friends avoid him! Though he pursues them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found.
He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done.
