    B. Lending money and charging high interest
    Explanation
    The word "usury" refers to the act of lending money and charging high interest. This practice is typically considered unethical or exploitative, as it takes advantage of borrowers who may already be in a vulnerable financial situation. The other options, "delight beyond measure" and "to confuse," do not accurately describe the meaning of usury.
