The standard in this world of lending and taking money on usury is by the word of God an abomination to the LORD (Ezekiel 18:1, 12-13).
The word of God is very clear about lending money on interest: it is UNRIGHTEOUS because the LORD God gave commandment to the people of Israel to NOT put money out on usury (Exodus 22:25) (Leviticus 25:36-18) (Deuteronomy 23:19-20).
Jesus, the Only Begotten Son of God, when he was here on earth testified about the works of this world, said: “[THE WORLD] cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I [TESTIFY OF IT], that the [WORKS THEREOF ARE EVIL]” (John 7:7).
“[ALL THESE ARE THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS]” (Matthew 24:8).

“And when ye shall [SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES], then know that the desolation thereof is nigh” (Luke 21:20).
“[FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION, SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD TO THIS TIME, NO, NOR EVER SHALL BE]” (Matthew 24:21).
“And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:22).
“[IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS] shall the [SUN BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON SHALL NOT GIVE HER LIGHT, AND THE STARS SHALL FALL FROM HEAVEN], and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:” (Matthew 24:29).
“So likewise ye, [WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS COME TO PASS], know ye that the Kingdom of God is nigh at hand; then look up, and [LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH]” (Luke 21:31, 28).
“[AND THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN]: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. [AND HE SHALL SEND HIS ANGELS WITH A GREAT SOUND OF A TRUMPET, AND THEY SHALL GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT FROM THE FOUR WINDS, FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER]” (Matthew 24:29-31).
“LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? [WHO SHALL DWELL IN THY HOLY HILL]?
He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
[HE THAT PUTTETH NOT OUT HIS MONEY TO USURY], nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved” (Psalm 15:1-5).
“[KEEP THY HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE]; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
