I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “to the poor”.

Est 9:22 As the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies,
and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy,
and from mourning into a good day:
that they should make them days of feasting and joy,
and of sending portions one to another,
and gifts to the poor.

Job 29:16 I was a father to the poor:
and the cause which I knew not I searched out.

Job 36:6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked:
but giveth right to the poor.

he hath given to the poor;
his righteousness endureth for ever;
his horn shall be exalted with honour.

Pro 22:9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed;
for he giveth of his bread to the poor.

Pro 31:20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor;
yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

Isa 25:4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor,
a strength to the needy in his distress,
a refuge from the storm,
a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the terrible ones is
as a storm against the wall.

Dan 4:27 Wherefore, O king,
let my counsel be acceptable unto thee,
and break off thy sins by righteousness,
and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor;
if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.

go and sell that thou hast,
and give to the poor,

and come and follow me.

Mat 26:9 For this ointment might have been sold for much,
and given to the poor.

Mar 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him,

and give to the poor,
and thou shalt have treasure in heaven:
and come, take up the cross,
and follow me.

Mar 14:5 For it might have been sold for
more than three hundred pence,
and have been given to the poor.
And they murmured against her.

Luk 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,

Luk 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way,
and tell John what things ye have seen and heard;
how that the blind see,
the lame walk,
the lepers are cleansed,
the deaf hear,
the dead are raised,
to the poor the gospel is preached.

Luk 19:8 And Zacchaeus stood,
and said unto the Lord;
Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor;
and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation,
I restore him fourfold.

Joh 12:5 Why was not this ointment
sold for three hundred pence,
and given to the poor?

Joh 13:29 For some of them thought,
because Judas had the bag,
that Jesus had said unto him,
Buy those things that we have need of against the feast;
or, that he should give something to the poor.

2Co 9:9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad;
he hath given to the poor:
his righteousness remaineth for ever.

10. Now he that ministereth seed to the sower
both minister bread for  your food,
and multiply your seed sown,
and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)

Jam 2:2. For if there come unto your assembly
a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel,
and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;

Jam 2:3 And ye have respect to him
that weareth the gay clothing,
and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place;
and say to the poor, Stand thou there,
or sit here under my footstool:

4. Are ye not then partial in yourselves,
and are become judges of evil thoughts?
