Why is it a bad thing for men to lend money?

Eyes rolling upwards, here we go again.

“Ok, why is it a bad thing for men to lend money?” (Kenneth T knows this already).

Because God said ‘It is not good for man to be a loan’ in Genesis 2 v. 18

Mind you, my translation’s the NQR Revised Version. This is the Not Quite Right version, so that may explain things.

Still, it is said ‘Neither a borrower or a lender be’ so maybe it does make some sense after all.

P.S. The Bible translations all have some flaws, even the best versions. You have to go back to the original text. I am trying to sort out some of the issues, although others may well have got there before me.
