1890 Darby's Translation of the Holy Scriptures (DBY)
8:4 ¶ Hear this, ye that pant after the needy, even to cause to fail the poor of the land,
8:5 saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat? making the ephah small and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances for deceit:
8:6 that we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; and that we may sell the refuse of the wheat.
8:8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? And it shall wholly rise up like the Nile; and it shall surge and sink down, as the river of Egypt.
8:10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning for an only [son], and the end thereof as a bitter day.
8:13 In that day shall the fair virgins and the young men faint for thirst;
8:14 they that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, [As] thy god, O Dan, liveth! and, [As] the way of Beer-sheba liveth! even they shall fall, and never rise up again.
