Listen to me you who walk on helpless people.
    You are trying to destroy the poor people of this country.
Your businessmen say,
“When will the New Moon Festival be over
    so we can sell grain?
When will the Sabbath be over
    so we can bring out wheat to sell?
We can charge them more
    and give them less.
    We can change the scales to cheat the people.
We will buy poor people for silver.
    And we will buy needy people for the price of a pair of sandals.
    We will even sell the wheat that was swept up from the floor.”
