1898 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
8:4 ¶ Hear this, ye who are swallowing up the needy, To cause to cease the poor of the land,
8:5 Saying, When doth the new moon pass, And we sell ground corn? And the sabbath, and we open out pure corn? To make little the ephah, And to make great the shekel, And to use perversely balances of deceit.
8:6 To purchase with money the poor, And the needy for a pair of sandals, Yea, the refuse of the pure corn we sell.
8:8 For this doth not the land tremble, And mourned hath every dweller in it? And come up as a flood hath all of it. And it hath been cast out, and hath sunk, Like the flood of Egypt.
8:10 And have turned your festivals to mourning, And all your songs to lamentation, And caused sackcloth to come up on all loins, And on every headbaldness, And made it as a mourning [of] an only one, And its latter end as a day of bitterness.
8:13 In that day faint do the fair virgins, And the young men, with thirst.
8:14 Those swearing by the guilt of Samaria, And have said, Live doth thy god, O Dan, And, Live doth the way of Beer-Sheba, And they have fallenand rise not again!'
