He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty.
"HE HAS FILLED THE HUNGRY WITH GOOD THINGS; And sent away the rich empty-handed.
He has satisfied the hungry with good things and sent the rich away with empty hands.
The starving poor sat down to a banquet; the callous rich were left out in the cold.
Those who had no food he made full of good things; the men of wealth he sent away with nothing in their hands;
he has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty.
He has filled the hungry with good things, And the rich He has sent away empty.
