Poor (penicran). A rare word from penh (penomai, to work for one's living). Latin penuria and Greek peinaw, to be hungry are kin to it. Here only in the N.T. Mark 12:42 has ptwch, a more common word from ptwssw, to be frightened, to strike and hide from fear, to be in beggary. And Luke uses this adjective also of her in verse Mark 3 .
