Yahweh forbids that I should give you the inheritance of my fathers King Ahab through Queen Jezebel, sequestered the vineyard of Naboth. Worse, they did so by having him stoned to death though innocent. Until today, the land of small farmers are immorally sequestered by the powerful — by moneylenders who charge usurious rates that farmers are unable to pay; by hacienda owners who with the help of private armies pressure farmers to sell their lands; and by developers who forge fake land titles to lands owned by small farmers and bribe judges to decide in their favor. How the heavens must be crying out of indignation over the dispossession of the poor.
