Job 24:4-10

They push the needy off the road;
the poor of the land are forced into hiding. Like wild donkeys in the desert,
the poor go out to their task of foraging for food;
the wilderness provides nourishment for their children. They gather their fodder in the field
and glean the vineyards of the more.
Without clothing, they spend the night naked,
having no covering against the cold. Drenched by mountain rains,
they huddle against the rocks, shelterless. The fatherless infant is snatched from the breast;
the nursing child of the poor is seized as collateral. Without clothing, they wander about naked.
They carry sheaves but go hungry.

so we may sell grain,

and the needy for a pair of sandals
and even sell the chaff!”
