Zephaniah 3:12

I will also leave in the midst of you an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.
Read Chapter 3

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Poor in spirit. (Haydock) Hebrew, "meek and extenuated "who trust not in themselves. This is the character of true Christians. The few Jews who remained in the country, or who returned from Babylon, might well represent them, being poor and dependent. The disciples of Christ contemned riches, and were resolute only where virtue was at stake. (Calmet) They were instructed by poor fishermen taught by God. (Menochius)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
