Extortioner

A greedy, ravenous person.

Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, EXTORNIONERS, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. ( Luke 18:10-11 )
