Listen to this, those who trample on the needy
    and ruin those who are oppressed in the world.
You say to yourselves,
    “When will the New Moon Festival be over
        so that we can sell more grain?
    When will the day of rest—a holy day, be over
        so that we can sell more wheat?
            We can shrink the size of the bushel baskets,
                increase the cost,
                    and cheat with dishonest scales.
                We can buy the poor with money
                    and the needy for a pair of sandals.
                We can sell the husks mixed in with the wheat.”
