Art of Giving, How to Donate
A good samaritan gift (alms) to your needy neighbor
and/or the poor will be a blessing to them and you. A gift of what you have, $5, $10, $20,
or $50, or food, or time, or material will go far to help.
The following verse was taken from the King James Bible, with Wigram's

FYI: In the above example, the
original Greek words are present in each definition with blue. For those
who are not familiar with translations, dialect is prominent between different
languages. A word may mean several words in one language, and is written
with several words to translate it, and vis-a-versa. The blue colored words
are the original. Bible Assist Software uses the King James Bible of 1769.
