Most of proverbs scripture verses stand by themselves.
However, could someone please read and analyze Proverbs 14:31 verse along with the Hebrew translation further down below, and post back a response explaining if the aforementioned verse is emphasizing whether "poor" is used to mean:
-or maybe could include both financially poor and Spiritually poor(like Job after all the tragedies that he went through)?
Proverbs 14:28-33 New American Standard Bible 1995
28 In a multitude of people is a king’s glory, But in the dearth of people is a prince’s ruin. 29 He who is slow to anger has great understanding, But he who is quick-tempered exalts folly. 30 A tranquil heart is life to the body, But passion is rottenness to the bones. 31 He who oppresses the poor taunts his Maker, But he who is gracious to the needy honors Him. 32 The wicked is thrust down by his wrongdoing, But the righteous has a refuge when he dies. 33 Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding, But in the [c]hearts of fools it is made known.

Just a Side Note reference to another scripture verse that uses the word "poor" : In the context of Galatians 2:1-14, what does Paul suggest by using the word "poor"?
