Usury is against God's Nature

Sin is anything against God's Nature, not merely that which the Bible explicitly prohibits in the New Testament. For example, gambling is a sin. You can know it by your conscience.

It is wicked to not repay one's debt (Psalm 37:21). Thus, it is wicked to exploit this for one's gain. That is exactly what usury does. Usury is to lend to expect more than what one is justly due.

 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.  And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again (Luke 6:30-34).
