|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
7 After thinking it over, I called the nobles and officials on the carpet. I said, "Each one of you is gouging his brother."
7 I pondered them in my mind and then accused the nobles and officials. I told them, "You are exacting usury from your own countrymen!" So I called together a large meeting to deal with them
