He who does not put out his money at usury (unlawful injurious interest), Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved. Psalm 15:5

He knows that the love of money is the fruitful source of all evil never strives to gain by others' need. He shuns extortion. No bribe can tempt him to overreaching acts. Such are the principles which sway his heart. Such prove that he is Christ's, ruled by His law, moved by His love, treading in His paths, seeking His glory. And he shall not be moved. Henry Law, Exposition of Psalms, 1878
