Nehemiah 5:6 CPDV

4  And others were saying: 'Let us borrow money for the tribute of the king, and let us surrender our fields and vineyards.'

5  'And now, as is the flesh of our brothers, so is our flesh; and as are their sons, so also are our sons. Behold, we have subjugated our sons and our daughters into servitude, and some of our daughters are slaves, nor do we have the ability to redeem them, for others possess our fields and our vineyards.'

6  And when I had heard their outcry in these words, I was exceedingly angry.

7  And my heart considered within me. And I rebuked the nobles and the magistrates, and I said to them, 'Have you each been exacting usury from your brothers?' And I gathered together a great assembly against them.

8  And I said to them: 'As you know, in accord with what was possible for us, we have redeemed our brothers, the Jews, who had been sold to the Gentiles. And yet you now sell your brothers, and we must redeem them?' And they were silent, nor did they find anything to answer.
