Proverbs 28:8

He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

Under the Law of Moses, a Hebrew was not allowed to charge interest to another Hebrew, though they could charge it to a non-Jew. Those who enrich themselves by charging interest or other forms of illicit revenue will lose their wealth, as it will be taken from them and given to someone who treats the poor properly and knows how to use their riches better.
