Nehemiah 5:5 BBE

3  And there were some who said, We are giving our fields and our vine-gardens and our houses for debt: let us get grain because we are in need.

4  And there were others who said, We have given up our fields and our vine-gardens to get money for the king's taxes.

5  But our flesh is the same as the flesh of our countrymen, and our children as their children: and now we are giving our sons and daughters into the hands of others, to be their servants, and some of our daughters are servants even now: and we have no power to put a stop to it; for other men have our fields and our vine-gardens.

6  And on hearing their outcry and what they said I was very angry.

7  And after turning it over in my mind, I made a protest to the chiefs and the rulers, and said to them, Every one of you is taking interest from his countryman. And I got together a great meeting of protest.
