In America, predator lenders target the poor and charge them the highest interest rates of all. Predator merchants charge them the highest prices for their basic needs, including food. What would Yahweh think about this? The answer is found in Leviticus 25:35-38:
If one of your brethren becomes poor, and falls into poverty among you, then you shall help him, like a stranger or a sojourner, that he may live with you.
(1) Take no usury or interest from him; but fear your God, that your brother may live with you.
(2) You shall not lend him your money for usury.
(3) You shall not lend him your food at a profit.
I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God.
