From Babylon to Babylon to Babylon

Nehemiah 5:3 "Some also there were that said, "We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth."

Nehemiah 5:4 "There were also that said, "We have borrowed money for the king's tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards."

Nehemiah 5:5 "Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already: neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards."
