Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck. He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Bible verses with God’s instructions to care for the poor
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord. The Lord bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life! Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control. The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are signs and portents in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion. A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord , all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord , he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you. Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you.
Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock.
It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as it seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness. For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Look to Abraham your father and to Sarah who bore you; for he was but one when I called him, that I might bless him and multiply him. For the Lord comforts Zion; he comforts all her waste places and makes her wilderness like Eden, her desert like the garden of the Lord ; joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the voice of song. My righteousness draws near, my salvation has gone out, and my arms will judge the peoples; the coastlands hope for me, and for my arm they wait.
The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent. For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what he has promised him. And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
There was a certain man of Ramathaim-zophim of the hill country of Ephraim whose name was Elkanah the son of Jeroham, son of Elihu, son of Tohu, son of Zuph, an Ephrathite. He had two wives.
The name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other, Peninnah. And Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children. Now this man used to go up year by year from his city to worship and to sacrifice to the Lord of hosts at Shiloh, where the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were priests of the Lord. On the day when Elkanah sacrificed, he would give portions to Peninnah his wife and to all her sons and daughters.
But to Hannah he gave a double portion, because he loved her, though the Lord had closed her womb. Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
So I would have younger widows marry, bear children, manage their households, and give the adversary no occasion for slander. But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food.
Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David. Behold, I made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples. Behold, you shall call a nation that you do not know, and a nation that did not know you shall run to you, because of the Lord your God, and of the Holy One of Israel, for he has glorified you.
Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth. Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,.
From men by your hand, O Lord , from men of the world whose portion is in this life. You fill their womb with treasure; they are satisfied with children, and they leave their abundance to their infants. As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything.

Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. At that time Balak, son of Zippor, was king of Moab. I know that whomever you bless is blessed and whomever you curse is cursed. They came to Balaam and told him what Balak had said. Now come and curse them for me. Please, come and curse these people for me. So the Messenger of the Lord stood in the road to stop him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, accompanied by his two servants. Balaam hit the donkey to get it back on the road.
Now the Messenger of the Lord stood there. So Balaam hit the donkey again. Balaam became so angry he hit the donkey with his stick. Have I ever done this to you before? So Balaam knelt, bowing with his face touching the ground. If it had not turned away from me, I would certainly have killed you by now but spared the donkey. I can only say what God tells me to say.
