Isaiah 24 (KJV)

1 Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.
2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury (the practice of making unethical or immoral monetary loans intended to unfairly enrich the lender.), so with the giver of usury to him.
3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.
4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth (declined) and fadeth away, the haughty (arrogant) people of the earth do languish (does deteriorate).
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed (offended) the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
