There are various terms of signification annexed to the word poor. By the character of poor is generally meant persons in indigent circumstances of body; but the Scripture meaning of the word poor, is the poverty of soul in respect to our lost and ruined estate by nature. And there is a third sense of the term, namely, the poor in spirit, of whom our Lord saith, "Theirs is the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:3) It is proper to keep alive the proper distinction of these different views of natural and spiritual poverty when reading the word of God.
