Nehemiah 5:5 DBY

3  And there were that said, We have had to pledge our fields, and our vineyards, and our houses, that we might procure corn in the dearth.

4  And there were that said, We have borrowed money for the king's tribute upon our fields and vineyards;

5  yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children; and behold, we must bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought into bondage [already]; neither is it in the power of our hand [to redeem them], for other men have our fields and our vineyards.

6  And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words.

7  And I consulted with myself; and I remonstrated with the nobles and the rulers, and said to them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother! And I set a great assembly against them.
