He [that] hath not given forth upon usury
Money, victuals, or any other thing, which was forbidden the Jews to take of their brethren, though they might of strangers, ( Deuteronomy 23:19 Deuteronomy 23:20 ) ; neither hath taken any increase:
or interest; or rather something over and above the interest money or use, as a gratuity for lending it upon the said interest: [that] hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity;
not only that now mentioned, but all others; who, having inadvertently engaged in that which is sinful, as soon as it appears to him to be so, gets out of it, and abstains from it as soon as possible: hath executed true judgment between man and man;
whether in office as a judge, who sits on the bench for that purpose; or as an arbitrator chosen to decide matters in controversy between one man and another, and that does everything just and right between man and man.
