Scripture teaches us in Joel 1:2-3
"Hear this, you elders; listen, all who live in the land. Has anything like this ever happened in your days or in the days of your ancestors?
Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation."

"That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such... "
