Amos 8:4-7

“Hear this, you who trample on the needy and bring the poor of the land to an end,
saying, ‘When will the new moon be over, that we may sell grain? And the Sabbath, that we may offer wheat for sale, that we may make the ephah small and the shekel great and deal deceitfully with false balances, that we may buy the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals and sell the chaff of the wheat?’ The LORD has sworn by the pride of Jacob: ‘Surely I will never forget any of their deeds.'” – Amos 8:4-7

Amen. Strong words here. Making the ephah small and the shekel great (changing the value of the currency to extract more from the poor as they purchase their daily needs) – a practice the Lord does not forget.
