For he did not remember to show kindness, but pursued the poor and needy and the brokenhearted to their death. He loved to curse; let curses come on him. He did not like blessing; may it be far from him. He clothed himself with cursing as his coat, may it soak into his body like water, like oil into his bones.
– Psalms 109:16-18
Maybe there is payback for neglecting the needy. I believe that there is a yin and yang. There is a balance in the universe.
