From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    The Mosaic law encouraged the practice of lending (Deut. 15:7;
    Ps. 37:26; Matt. 5:42); but it forbade the exaction of interest
    except from foreigners. Usury was strongly condemned (Prov.
    28:8; Ezek. 18:8, 13, 17; 22:12; Ps. 15:5). On the Sabbatical
    year all pecuniary obligations were cancelled (Deut. 15:1-11).
    These regulations prevented the accumulation of debt.
