Nehemiah 5:1-13
Now there was a great outcry of the people and of their wives against their Jewish brothers.
For there were those who said, "We, our sons and our daughters are many; therefore let us get grain that we may eat and live."
There were others who said, "We are mortgaging our fields, our vineyards and our houses that we might get grain because of the famine."
Also there were those who said, "We have borrowed money for the king's tax [on] our fields and our vineyards.
"Now our flesh is like the flesh of our brothers, our children like their children. Yet behold, we are forcing our sons and our daughters to be slaves, and some of our daughters are forced into bondage [already], and we are helpless because our fields and vineyards belong to others."
Then I was very angry when I had heard their outcry and these words.
I consulted with myself and contended with the nobles and the rulers and said to them, "You are exacting usury, each from his brother!" Therefore, I held a great assembly against them.
I said to them, "We according to our ability have redeemed our Jewish brothers who were sold to the nations; now would you even sell your brothers that they may be sold to us?" Then they were silent and could not find a word [to say].
Again I said, "The thing which you are doing is not good; should you not walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the nations, our enemies?
"And likewise I, my brothers and my servants are lending them money and grain. Please, let us leave off this usury.
"Please, give back to them this very day their fields, their vineyards, their olive groves and their houses, also the hundredth [part] of the money and of the grain, the new wine and the oil that you are exacting from them."
Then they said, "We will give [it] back and will require nothing from them; we will do exactly as you say." So I called the priests and took an oath from them that they would do according to this promise.
I also shook out the front of my garment and said, "Thus may God shake out every man from his house and from his possessions who does not fulfill this promise; even thus may he be shaken out and emptied." And all the assembly said, "Amen!" And they praised the LORD. Then the people did according to this promise.

Job 24:2-12
"Some remove the landmarks; They seize and devour flocks.
"They drive away the donkeys of the orphans; They take the widow's ox for a pledge.
"They push the needy aside from the road; The poor of the land are made to hide themselves altogether.
"Behold, as wild donkeys in the wilderness They go forth seeking food in their activity, As bread for [their] children in the desert.
"They harvest their fodder in the field And glean the vineyard of the wicked.
"They spend the night naked, without clothing, And have no covering against the cold.
"They are wet with the mountain rains And hug the rock for want of a shelter.
"Others snatch the orphan from the breast, And against the poor they take a pledge.
"They cause [the poor] to go about naked without clothing, And they take away the sheaves from the hungry.
"Within the walls they produce oil; They tread wine presses but thirst.
"From the city men groan, And the souls of the wounded cry out; Yet God does not pay attention to folly.
