Amos 8:4-6 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

Listen, you who swallow the needy
and destroy the poor of the land!
You say, “When will Rosh-Hodesh be over,
so we can market our grain?
and Shabbat, so we can sell wheat?”
You measure the grain in a small eifah,
but the silver in heavy shekels,
fixing the scales, so that you can cheat,
buying the needy for money
and the poor for a pair of shoes,
and sweeping up the refuse of the wheat to sell!”
