247- USURPING OUR DEBTS
Leviticus 19:11-13 -- 11 “You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another. 12 And you shall not swear by My name falsely, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD. 13 You shall not cheat your neighbor, nor rob him. The wages of him who is hired shall not remain with you all night until morning.”
Oppression occurs when one has in him keeping a sum of money, which belongs to another, and he keeps it and does not give it to him, whether he uses force or does not use force.
