1). It is the desire of God to lift his people out of poverty.

Psalm 113:7



Psalm 113:7

He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

a. NLT: He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump.

b. NIV: He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap;

c. YLT: He is raising up from the dust the poor, From a dunghill He exalteth the needy.

d. Amplified Bible Classic: [The Lord] raises the poor out of the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap and the dung hill,

e. Septuagint: Who lifts up the poor from the earth, and raises up the needy from the dunghill;

f. Stone Edition Torah/Prophets/Writings: He raises the needy from the dust, from the trash heaps He lifts the destitute.

1. “He raiseth up the poor out of the dust…”

a. [He] raiseth up [Strong: 6965 quwm koom a primitive root; to rise (in various applications, literal, figurative, intensive and causative):--abide, accomplish, X be clearer, confirm, continue, decree, X be dim, endure, X enemy, enjoin, get up, make good, help, hold, (help to) lift up (again), make, X but newly, ordain, perform, pitch, raise (up), rear (up), remain, (a-)rise (up) (again, against), rouse up, set (up), (e-)stablish, (make to) stand (up), stir up, strengthen, succeed, (as-, make) sure(-ly), (be) up(-hold, - rising).]

1). This exactly why Jesus preached the gospel to the poor, he wants to lift them out of poverty. A relationship with God coupled with obedience to the word of God will lift a person out of poverty, out of the pile of human waste he or she lives on, and raise them up to sit with the leaders of the people.

a). Luke 4:16-19 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

b). Psalm 113:5-8 Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,
113:6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
113:8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

2. “…and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;”

a. and lifteth [Strong: 7311 ruwm room a primitive root; to be high actively, to rise or raise (in various applications, literally or figuratively):--bring up, exalt (self), extol, give, go up, haughty, heave (up), (be, lift up on, make on, set up on, too) high(-er, one), hold up, levy, lift(-er) up, (be) lofty, (X a-)loud, mount up, offer (up), + presumptuously, (be) promote(-ion), proud, set up, tall(-er), take (away, off, up), breed worms.]

b. the needy [Strong: 34 ‘ebyown eb-yone' from 14, in the sense of want (especially in feeling); destitute:--beggar, needy, poor (man).]

c. [out of the] dunghill [Strong: 830 'ashpoth ash-pohth' or uashpowth {ash-pohth'}; or (contraction) shphoth {shef-ohth'}; plural of a noun of the same form as 827, from 8192 (in the sense of scraping); a heap of rubbish or filth:--dung (hill).]

1). According to Blue Letter Bible this word is used 7 in the Old Testament and in every instance it is translated dunghill(s). In more literal terms hills of human waste.
