Hear this, you who trample on the needy(A)
and do away with the poor of the land,(B)
asking, “When will the New Moon be over
so we may sell grain,(C)
and the Sabbath,
so we may market wheat?(D)
We can reduce the measure
while increasing the price[a]
and cheat with dishonest scales.(E)
We can buy the poor with silver
and the needy for a pair of sandals(F)
and even sell the chaff!”
