The one who shows favor to a poor person lends to Yahweh,
and he will repay him according to his good work. Bible

“he will repay.” The Hebrew is shalam (#07999 שָׁלַם), and in this context it means “to be repaid or rewarded.” Yahweh will bless those who are generous to the poor (Prov. 11:17; 14:21; 22:9; 28:27) but will stand against those who oppress them (Prov. 21:13; 22:22-23).
