Interest, From A Bible Perspective, Is So Detestable that It’s Cause For Execution


Ezekiel 18:1313 He lends at interest and takes a profit. Will such a man live? He will not! Because he has done all these detestable things, he is to be put to death; his blood will be on his own head.

Leviticus 25:37 — You must not lend them money at interest or sell them food at a profit.

Ezekiel 18:1717 He withholds his hand from mistreating the poor
    and takes no interest or profit from them.
He keeps my laws and follows my decrees.

Exodus 22:25 — If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not treat it like a business deal; charge no interest.

Leviticus 25:35-38 — 35 If any of your fellow Israelites become poor and are unable to support themselves among you, help them as you would a foreigner and stranger, so they can continue to live among you. 36 Do not take interest or any profit from them, but fear your God, so that they may continue to live among you. 37 You must not lend them money at interest or sell them food at a profit. 38 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God.

Ezekiel 22:12 — In you are people who accept bribes to shed blood; you take interest and make a profit from the poor. You extort unjust gain from your neighbors. And you have forgotten me, declares the Sovereign Lord.

How often do we hear in church an outcry against banks, mortgage companies, credit card companies, payday lenders, and the rich who profit from them?
