Wealth In the Hand of the Few (Isn. r. :S). 1. "Join house tn house" (v. S). 2. "Lay field to field" (v. s). The iivarl' loux greed of these men ciiuscd them lo enlarge their extntea at the exn'lixe of their neighborx. In agricultural districts it took the form of land grubbing and the eviction of the small proprietor, nnd in the com mercial renters the crowding out of the small concerns by the large cor porations. Iiml hates the spirit of avarice. II. Method Employed in the Ao quiiition of Wealth (Anion S:IC). 1. Swallowed up the needy" (v. 4). Swallowed tip" literally means to punt after, like a lienxt nfter Its rey with eagerness to devour. Many to day get rich by swallowing up the needy. "To imike the poor nf the land to fail" (v. A). They were grasping after the houses nnd lands of the poor, and in order to accomplish this they impoverished them ill every way pos sible no nx to root them out of the laud. Thin they doubtless did by withholding from them their luwful wagen. an example of which we find in .tames ":4. and placing exorbitant tnxex upon them ami cheating them In the courts. 3. Megruilged the Ions of holy daya (v. Ti). They were restlessly Impatient because of the restrictions of those days. Though outwardly conforming . the Sabbath they were seeking all the while to commercialize It. Many today go to church for the sake of rrtspcctnhility while impatiently wait ing for the day to puss in order to to pursue their business. 4. Iiislnmesty in business dealing (v. fi). (1) They made the ephah sinnll. Their measure were less than the price paid for. (U) They made the shekel great. The shekel being the coin used to pay hills, the mer chants put Into circulation overweight shekels thus getting a higher price for their grain. The purchaser waa thus cut on hoth nlden. (3) Falsified their bulnnoes. Kven the scules by which ttie gold and silver were weighed had been tampered with, mak ing them guilty of cheating in three ways. 5. They bought the poor for nilver (t. 0). The poor were reduced to such poverty by the above means of cheating that they were obliged to sell iheinselves Into shivery, even for pair of shin's. f They sold the refuse of the wheat (v. 0). In time of famine they even sold to the eople thnt part of the wheat which was intended for the cattle. III. God'a Judgment Upon Them (Anion H:7; cf. Isn. 3:l. lit). (oil nnys "I will never forget." Not one act of greed nml oppression will escupe (iinl's notice, 1. Many houses shall he desolate. 'J. The bind unproductive (v. 10). IV. A Picture of a Rich Man and Beggar (I. like Hi :l'.l j.'). 1. Their liven. (1) The rich man. lie hnd much goods, lie operated In the highest society. ('.') The U'ggar. He not only was poor, but helples. He had no place iu the social order. 2. Their iW'iitlis.
