All other sins are open,
Usura alone not understood.
With usura hath no man a house of good stone
each block cut smooth and well fitting
hath no man a painted paradise on his church wall
no picture is made to endure nor to live with
but it is made to sell and sell quickly
Usura slayeth the child in the womb It stayeth the young man's courting It hath brought palsey to bed, lyeth between the young bride and her bridegroom
No picture is made to endure nor to live with but it is made to sell and sell quickly with usura, sin against nature, is thy bread ever more of stale rags is thy bread dry as paper.

While the spoken word can travel faster, you can't take it home in your hand. Only the written word can be absorbed wholly at the convenience of the reader.
