Nehemiah 5:1-5

And there was a great
<01419>
cry
<06818>
of the people
<05971>
and of their wives
<0802>
against their brethren
<0251>
the Jews
<03064>_.
For there were
<03426>
that said
<0559> (8802)_,
We, our sons
<01121>_,
and our daughters
<01323>_,
[are] many
<07227>_:
therefore we take up
<03947> (8799)
corn
<01715>
[for them], that we may eat
<0398> (8799)_,
and live
<02421> (8799)_.
[Some] also there were
<03426>
that said
<0559> (8802)_,
We have mortgaged
<06148> (8802)
our lands
<07704>_,
vineyards
<03754>_,
and houses
<01004>_,
that we might buy
<03947> (8799)
corn
<01715>_,
because of the dearth
<07458>_.
There were
<03426>
also that said
<0559> (8802)_,
We have borrowed
<03867> (8804)
money
<03701>
for the king's
<04428>
tribute
<04060>_,
[and that upon] our lands
<07704>
and vineyards
<03754>_.
Yet now our flesh
<01320>
[is] as the flesh
<01320>
of our brethren
<0251>_,
our children
<01121>
as their children
<01121>_:
and, lo, we bring into bondage
<03533> (8802)
our sons
<01121>
and our daughters
<01323>
to be servants
<05650>_,
and [some] of our daughters
<01323>
are
<03426>
brought unto bondage
<03533> (8737)
[already]: neither [is it] in our power
<0410> <03027>
[to redeem them]; for other men
<0312>
have our lands
<07704>
and vineyards
<03754>_.
