Amos 8:4-6 Modern English Version (MEV)

Against the Greedy

Hear this, you who trample on the needy
    to make the poor of the land fail,

saying,

“When will the New Moon be over,
    so that we may sell grain?
And the Sabbath,
    that we may open the wheat sales,
making the ephah[a] too small,
    and the shekel[b] too heavy,
    cheating with dishonest scales,
that we may buy the poor for silver,
    the needy for a pair of sandals,
    and sell the refuse as wheat?”
