8:4 Listen to this, you who trample the needy,
and do away with the destitute in the land.
8:5 You say,
“When will the new moon festival be over, so we can sell grain?
When will the Sabbath end, so we can open up the grain bins?
We’re eager to sell less for a higher price,
and to cheat the buyer with rigged scales!
8:6 We’re eager to trade silver for the poor,
a pair of sandals for the needy!
We want to mix in some chaff with the grain!”
