The "poor in spirit" is a phrase that appears in Matthew 5:3, translated by "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (NIV). The phrase appears nowhere else in the Bible.
- The "poor in spirit" were people who felt undeserving and little. They would not have imagined great things coming to them, nor would they have hoped or dreamed of a better life.
The phrase suggests a humility, and the attitude of someone who most appreciate an unexpected, tremendous gift.
