From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      That the poor existed among the Hebrews we have abundant
      evidence (Ex. 23:11; Deut. 15:11), but there is no mention of
      beggars properly so called in the Old Testament. The poor were
      provided for by the law of Moses (Lev. 19:10; Deut. 12:12;
      14:29). It is predicted of the seed of the wicked that they
      shall be beggars (Ps. 37:25; 109:10).
         In the New Testament we find not seldom mention made of
      beggars (Mark 10:46; Luke 16:20, 21; Acts 3:2), yet there is no
      mention of such a class as vagrant beggars, so numerous in the
      East. "Beggarly," in Gal. 4:9, means worthless.
