Bible: Amos 8:5-6

8:5 You say,

When will the new moon festival 1  be over, 2  so we can sell grain?

When will the Sabbath end, 3  so we can open up the grain bins? 4 

We’re eager 5  to sell less for a higher price, 6 

and to cheat the buyer with rigged scales! 7 

8:6 We’re eager to trade silver for the poor, 8 

a pair of sandals 9  for the needy!

We want to mix in some chaff with the grain! 10
