40 Bible verses to help the needy

In the Bible we find answers to all our questions, doubts, feelings and many teachings. For this reason it is important that we have a daily reading where we get different topics such as help the needy bible. Learn in this article the 40 verses of the Holy Bible to help the most needy.


Help the needy Bible

The love and understanding that God has had with those most in need can be found in both the Old and New Testaments. Since God has always manifested his mercy with the poorest and the most needy. We find the evidence written in the Bible, there we find how helping the needy was the great joy of Jesus Christ.

We must make it clear that the Lord urges us to make these demonstrations of love because it comes from our hearts. Since by works we do not enter the kingdom of heaven. That is why God asks us to help the needy bible, to the sick, the poor, among others.


verses for the sick

Generally, when one or someone we know suffers from an illness, it is normal to get in touch with God. If the disease affects us or we should ask for help to the needy Bible, prayer is the greatest medicine we have. We as Christians have to make a habit of talking to Jesus Christ we must thank him and look for him to help the needy Bible at all times. For this reason we find among the verses that we get to help the needy Bible on illness we have the following:

Verses to help the sick Old Testament:

1.- Exodus 15:26

26 And he said, If you listen attentively to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in his sight, and pay attention to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will not send you any of the diseases that I sent to the Egyptians; for I am Jehovah your healer.

2.- Deuteronomy 7:15

15 And the Lord will take away from you all sickness; and all the evil plagues of Egypt, which you know, he will not put on you, but he will put them on all who hate you.

3.- 2 Kings 1:2

And Ahaziah fell out of the window of a room in the house that he had in Samaria; and being sick, he sent messengers, and said to them: Go and ask Baal-zebub god of Ekron, if I am to heal from this my illness.


4.- 2 Kings 1:16

16 And he said to him, Thus saith the Lord: Because you sent messengers to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, is there no God in Israel to inquire of his word? You will not rise, therefore, from the bed in which you are, but you will certainly die.

5.- Psalms 41:3

Jehovah will sustain him on the bed of pain;
You will fluff his whole bed in his sickness.

6.- Proverbs 18:14

14 The spirit of man will bear his illness;
But who can bear the anguished spirit?


As Christians we know that moments of illness are not easy, but we must have faith and the strength that God will guide us at every step, at every moment. Let us not fall into going to look for sorcerers or sorcerers who offer us some way out because this displeases God. If he raised Lazarus from the dead, let us have the faith, the conviction and the certainty that Christ is working in us, in the family or in the friends.

Verses to help the sick New Testament:

7.- Matthew 4: 23

23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every disease among the people.

8.- Matthew 8:16-17

16 And when night came, many possessed with demons were brought to him; and with the word he cast out demons, and healed all the sick;

17 so that what was said by the prophet Isaiah would be fulfilled, when he said: He himself took our sicknesses, and bore our diseases.

9.- Mark 1:32-34

32 When night came, after the sun had set, they brought him all those who had diseases, and those possessed by demons;

33 and the whole city crowded at the gate.

34 And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he did not let the demons speak, because they knew him.


10.- Luke 4:40-41

40 When the sun went down, all those who had patients with various diseases brought them to him; and he, laying his hands on each one of them, healed them.

41 Demons also came out of many, crying out and saying: You are the Son of God. But he rebuked them and would not let them speak, because they knew that he was the Christ.

11.- Luke 5:15

40 When the sun went down, all those who had patients with various diseases brought them to him; and he, laying his hands on each one of them, healed them.

41 Demons also came out of many, crying out and saying: You are the Son of God. But he rebuked them and would not let them speak, because they knew that he was the Christ.

12.- Luke 13:11-12

11 and there was a woman there who for eighteen years had had a spirit of infirmity, and she walked bent over, and could not straighten up at all.

12 When Jesus saw her, he called her and said: Woman, you are free from your disease.


When Jesus was on Earth he healed thousands of people, some blind, others lame or demon-possessed, in each of his miracles the people and even his apostles marveled at his exploits. When he ordered the apostles to go preach the Gospel and cure the sick, they asked how they would do it since they did not know how. And the Lord at that time left one of the greatest teachings of his what they do in his name will be done. If you have Faith and it is done in His Name, everything is possible, so we recommend that you believe, seek His Face, praise Him, bless Him and glorify Him.

Other Sickness Verses

13.- Exodus 23:25

25 But the Lord your God you will serve, and he will bless your bread and your waters; and I will remove all sickness from your midst.

14.- Psalms 146:8

Jehovah opens the eyes of the blind;
Jehovah lifts up the fallen;
Jehovah loves the righteous.

15.- Psalms 147:3

3 He heals the brokenhearted,
And bandage your wounds.


16.- Proverbs 17:22

22 A cheerful heart is a good remedy;
But a broken spirit dries the bones.

17.- 3 John 1:2

25 But the Lord your God you will serve, and he will bless your bread and your waters; and I will remove all sickness from your midst.

18.- James 5:14-15

14 Is any sick among you? Call the elders of the church, and pray for him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.

15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.


In times of illness, anguish, pain, always praise the Lord, bless him and you will see his glory reflected in you. Remember that God's ways are not our ways, so if you are going through a situation that you do not understand or that you do not like, it is not because the Lord abandoned you but because you are in the test and that is where our Faith must be intact. Let's not remember Christ only in bad times live day by day with Him.

Teachings of the poor

For centuries poverty has been a condition that exists and that unfortunately has many in these deplorable conditions, that is why we as Christians must fulfill our duty to help the needy Bible. From the Old Testament we can see how God exhorted to help the needy Bible not only with food or clothing but with the way of being treated. Helping the needy Bible is something that takes into consideration as seen in the following verse.

Amos 2: 6

Thus saith the Lord: For three sins of Israel, and for the fourth, I will not revoke their punishment; because they sold the righteous for money, and the poor for a pair of shoes.

In the New Testament the situation of the poor was very similar for which Jesus was able to help the needy Bible. When Jesus was on Earth, integrity, well-being, or helping the needy Bible of the poor did not matter as long as the priests were comfortable in their temples. Jesus was a clear example of how to help the needy Bible and verbally punished the priests as we read in the following verse

Luke 20: 26-47

46 Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long clothes, and love greetings in the squares, and the first chairs in the synagogues, and the first seats at dinners;

47 who devour widows' houses, and by pretext make long prayers; these will receive greater condemnation.

When Jesus Christ was on Earth he taught us and spoke to us about how we should help the needy Bible, how we should do it from the heart not considering it a good deed that could open the gates of heaven for us. So helping the needy Bible is one of the great requests that Jesus left us. The needy for different reasons are in that situation and if we are blessed why not help the needy Bible.

Luke 21: 1-4

1 Looking up, he saw the rich throwing their offerings into the offering chest.

He also saw a very poor widow, who threw two white there.

And he said: Truly I tell you, this poor widow put in more than all of them.

For all of those put into the offerings of God out of what they had left over; but this one, from her poverty, put in all the sustenance she had.

Old Testament Verses

19.- Deuteronomy 15:4

so that there is no beggar in your midst; for the LORD will bless you abundantly in the land that the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess,

20.- Proverbs 14:20-21

20 The poor man is hateful even to his friend;
But there are many who love the rich.

21 He who despises his neighbor sins;
But he who has mercy on the poor is blessed.

21.- Proverbs 18:23

23 The poor man speaks with pleas,
But the rich respond harshly.

22.- Proverbs 19:1

1 Better is the poor who walks in integrity,
That the one with perverse lips and fatuous.

23.- Proverbs 19:4

Riches bring many friends;
But the poor man is separated from his friend.

24.- Proverbs 19:7

All the brothers of the poor hate him;
How much more his friends will move away from him!
It will search for the word, and not find it.

25.- Proverbs 19:17

17 He who gives to the poor lends to Jehovah,
And the good that he has done, he will pay again.

26.- Ecclesiastes 6:8

For what more has the wise man than the fool? What else has the poor man who knew how to walk among the living?

Christ tells us to love one another, He does not specify race, creed, religion, culture, or social status. He calls us to love each other, why deny help to someone in need? Why not be with them in bad times? Why not give if we have? It is true that in today's world everything seems to be rampant and that day to day consumes us but if you stop for five minutes and observe you will see many homeless. Help, talk to him, feed them, it doesn't matter if it's one of them, the important thing is that you do it, talk to him about the Word of God, maybe you'll change his life just as God hasn't changed you and me.

New Testament Verses

27.- Matthew 11:3-5

to ask him: Are you the one who was to come, or shall we wait for another?

Jesus answered and said to them: Go and tell John what you hear and see.

The blind see, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the gospel is preached to the poor;

28.- Matthew 26:11

11 Because you will always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me.

29.- Mark 14:7

You will always have the poor with you, and whenever you want you can do them good; but you will not always have me.

30.- John 12:8

Because you will always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me.

Morning prayer of trust in God

31.- Psalms 3:1-8

1 Oh Jehovah, how my adversaries have multiplied!
Many are those who rise up against me.

Many are those who say of me:
There is no salvation for him in God. selah

But you, Jehovah, are a shield around me;
My glory, and the one who lifts my head.

With my voice I cried out to the Lord,
And he answered me from his holy mountain. selah

I lay down and slept,
And I woke up, because Jehovah sustained me.

I will not fear ten thousand people,
Let them lay siege against me.

Arise, Jehovah; save me, my God;
Because you struck all my enemies on the cheek;
The teeth of the wicked hast broken.

Salvation is from Jehovah;
Upon your people be your blessing. selah

When you start your day, do it by entering into communion with God and that Psalm is perfect. It is a prayer that tells us that we know that we can find enemies anywhere but we have the Faith that the Lord is with us, protects us and blesses us day by day. Cry out to the Lord, he will answer you.

Prayer asking for mercy in time of trial

32.- Psalms 6:1-10

1 Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger,
Do not punish me with your anger.

Have mercy on me, O Lord, because I am sick;
Heal me, O Lord, for my bones shake.

My soul is also very troubled;
And you, Jehovah, until when?

Return, O Lord, deliver my soul;
Save me by your mercy.

Because in death there is no memory of you;
In Sheol, who will praise you?

I have consumed myself by force of groaning;
Every night I flood my bed with tears,
I water my bed with my tears.

My eyes are worn from suffering;
They have grown old because of all my anguish.

Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
For the Lord has heard the voice of my cry.

Jehovah has heard my plea;
Jehovah has received my prayer.

10 All my enemies will be ashamed and greatly dismayed;
They will turn and be put to shame suddenly.

When we look for verses to help the Bible, let's do it with the heart asking the Lord for answers and that is manifested through his Word. Perhaps we do not understand his test or we feel that what we are going through is a test, the important thing is not to faint along the way thinking that Christ has forgotten us. Since He is at the right hand of the Father asking every hour, every minute, every moment for you, for your husband, for your wife, for your family, for the whole world. Have faith that everything will be resolved and that God will bless you greatly.

Prayer for help in affliction

33.- Psalms 13:1-6

1 How long, Jehovah? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?

Until when will I put advice in my soul,
With sadness in my heart every day?
How long will my enemy be exalted above me?

See, answer me, O Jehovah my God;
Light up my eyes, so that I don't sleep to death;

So that my enemy does not say: I defeated him.
My enemies would rejoice, if I slipped.

But I have trusted in your mercy;
My heart will rejoice in your salvation.

I will sing to Jehovah,
Because it has done me good.

When Christ was crucified he never stopped looking for the face of His Father if he, being his Son, kept looking for it because we don't. Let us seek the Lord day and night and we will see how great things happen to us. The Lord is our refuge, our rock, our compass in this world.

Jehovah is my shepherd

34.- Psalms 23:1-6

1 Jehovah is my shepherd; I will lack nothing.

In places of delicate pastures he will make me rest;
Beside still waters will shepherd me.

It will comfort my soul;
He will guide me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, because you will be with me;
Your rod and your staff will give me breath.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup is overflowing.

Surely good and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,
And in the house of the Lord I will dwell for long days.

Although we are in very hard times like death, the Lord does not abandon us, never has and never will. Let us understand that we are his children and that He cares for us and loves us, God is not going to abandon us in hard times or in despair, so pray late, morning and night, when you wake up and when you sleep, because our Father listens to each one of our prayers. prayers

Jehovah is my light and my salvation

35.- Psalms 27:1-14

1 Jehovah is my light and my salvation; who will I fear?
Jehovah is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked, my oppressors, and my enemies gathered against me,
To eat my meats, they stumbled and fell.

Though an army encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Even if war breaks out against me,
I will be confident.

One thing have I required of Jehovah, this will I seek;
May I be in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of Jehovah, and to inquire in his temple.

For he will hide me in his tabernacle in the day of evil;
He will hide me in the privacy of his dwelling;
On a rock set me high.

Then he will raise my head above my enemies around me,
And I will sacrifice in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy;
I will sing and sing praises to Jehovah.

Hear, O Lord, my voice with which I cry to you;
Have mercy on me, and answer me.

My heart has said of you: Seek my face.
I will seek your face, O Lord;

Don't hide your face from me.
Do not push your servant away in anger;
You have been my help.
Do not leave me or forsake me, God of my salvation.

10 Even if my father and mother left me,
Yet Jehovah will pick me up.

11 Teach me, O LORD, your way,
And guide me on the path of righteousness
Because of my enemies.

12 Do not deliver me to the will of my enemies;
For false witnesses have risen up against me, and those who breathe cruelty.

13 I would have fainted, if I had not believed that I would see the goodness of Jehovah
In the land of the living.

14 Wait for the Lord;
Be strong, and let your heart be encouraged;
Yes, wait on Jehovah.

Let us be strong of heart and have Faith, as this verse shows us when we seek to help the needy Bible, we have to understand that the Lord keeps us at all times and change only asks us to declare him our Lord and to follow his path that although it is narrow the path the blessings are enormous and for eternity.

prayer asking for health

36.- Psalms 41:1-13

1 Blessed is he who thinks of the poor;
In the evil day the Lord will deliver him.

Jehovah will keep him, and give him life;
He will be blessed on earth,
And you will not hand him over to the will of his enemies.

Jehovah will sustain him on the bed of pain;
You will fluff his whole bed in his sickness.

I said: Jehovah, have mercy on me;
Heal my soul, because I have sinned against you.

My enemies speak ill of me, asking:
When will he die, and his name perish?

And if they come to see me, they speak lies;
His heart gathers up iniquity for himself,
And when they go out they spread it.

Assembled they murmur against me all who hate me;
They think evil against me, saying of me:

A pestilential thing has taken hold of him;
And the one who fell in bed will never get up again.

Even the man of my peace, in whom I trusted, the one who ate my bread,
He raised his heel against me.

10 But you, Jehovah, have mercy on me, and raise me up,
And I will give them the payment.

11 In this I will know that I have pleased you,
May my enemy not disown me.

12 As for me, in my integrity you have upheld me,
And you have made me stand before you forever.

13 Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel,
Forever and ever.
Amen and amen.

Many believe that miracles only occurred when Christ was on Earth, but that is far from the truth since even if we do not see it, God works in us every day. Fight battles that are not visible to our eyes and bring us out victorious, the Lord never departs from us as long as we are with Him.

God is our refuge and strength

37.- Psalms 46:1-11

God is our shelter and strength,
Our early aid in tribulations.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved,
And the mountains are transferred to the heart of the sea;

Although its waters roar and are troubled,
And the mountains tremble because of its might. selah

From the river its currents rejoice the city of God,
The sanctuary of the dwellings of the Most High.

God is in her midst; she will not be moved.
God will help her in the morning light.

Nations roared, kingdoms faltered;
He gave his voice, the Earth was melted.

Jehovah of armies is with us;
Our refuge is the God of Jacob. selah

Come, see the works of the Lord,
Who has laid wastes on the earth.

Who makes wars cease to the ends of the earth.
That breaks the bow, cuts the spear,
And burn the cars in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted on earth.

11 Jehovah of armies is with us;
Our refuge is the God of Jacob. selah

Even if we don't understand the things that happen around us, even if we don't know how to handle the situation, we have the Faith that the Lord is in control of every aspect of our life because He is everywhere guarding our entrances and our exits.

 Prayer asking for help against the enemy

38.- Psalms 60:1-12

1 O God, you have rejected us, you have broken us;
You have become angry; come back to us!

You have made the earth tremble, you have split it;
Heal his breaks, because he hesitates.

You have made your people see hard things;
You made us drink stunning wine.

You have given those who fear you a flag
Let them rise up for the truth. selah

For your loved ones to be freed,
Save with your right hand, and hear me.

God has said in his sanctuary: I will rejoice;
I will divide Shechem, and I will measure the valley of Sukkot.

Mine is Gilead, and mine is Manasseh;
And Ephraim is the fortress of my head;
Judah is my lawgiver.

Moab, vessel to wash myself;
Upon Edom I will cast my shoes;
I will rejoice over Philistia.

Who will take me to the fortified city?
Who will take me to Edom?

10 Will it not be you, O God, who had cast us off,
And you didn't go out, oh God, with our armies?

11 Give us succor against the enemy,
For vain is the help of men.

12 In God we will do feats,
And he will trample our enemies.

Who will lead us to victory in the battles we fight every day? It is a question that as Christians we must answer out loud and without hesitation, our Lord Jesus Christ, King of kings, Lord of Lords. He who can do everything, He beat death, resurrecting after three days. Only God will lead us to eternal victory.

God raises the poor

39.- Psalms 113:1-9

1 Give praise, servants of Jehovah,
Praise the name of Jehovah.

Blessed be the name of Jehovah
From now and forever.

From the rising of the sun to where it sets,
Praised be the name of Jehovah.

High above all nations is Jehovah,
Above the heavens his glory.

Who is like the Lord our God,
sit on the heights,

who humiliates himself to look
In heaven and on earth?

He raises the poor from the dust,
And to the needy rise from the dunghill,

To make them sit with the princes,
With the princes of his people.

He makes the barren live in a family,
Who enjoys being a mother of children.

When we read the Bible verses to help the needy, we realize that the Lord always cared and taught us that we should care for the most needy. Let us follow in his footsteps and seek to protect and help those who may need us, that makes the heart of Christ happy.

Jehovah is your keeper

40.- Psalms 121:1-8

1 I will lift my eyes to the mountains;
Where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,
Who made the heavens and the earth.

Will not give your foot to the slide,
Nor will he who guards you sleep.

Behold, it will not drowse or sleep
The one who keeps Israel.

Jehovah is your keeper;
Jehovah is your shadow at your right hand.

The sun will not tire you by day,
Not the moon at night.

Jehovah will keep you from all evil;
He will guard your soul.

Jehovah will guard your going out and your coming in
From now and forever.

After reading and understanding each of these verses to help the needy Bible we must understand that no matter the moment and what we can feel the Lord Jesus is always and will be with each one of us is a promise that he made to us the chosen ones by Him so do not give up in the search for the face of Christ.
