This verse from Proverbs is providing a caution against accumulating wealth through exploitative or excessive interest on loans. It suggests that anyone who enriches themselves by charging exorbitantly high rates of interest on money lent will not ultimately keep that wealth for themselves, since God will ensure it ends up assisting “the poor” instead.

The verse implies that wealth gained through unjust means like predatory lending at very high interest rates is not a legitimate form of profit and accumulation, and such ill-gotten riches will not remain in the hands of the greedy lender but will ultimately benefit the disadvantaged instead as a form of divine justice.
