Deuteronomy 19:15: Twenty-First Century Edition
Witnesses shall not rise up against a person
for any iniquity,
in the absence of physical evidence,
and they should always be regarded skeptically

and when the debtors had nothing to pay,
the creditors frankly forgave them their debts
and waited for the government bailout
