Amos 2:6-8

Judgement on Israel


6 Thus says the Lord:
For three transgressions of Israel,
   and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;*
because they sell the righteous for silver,
   and the needy for a pair of sandals—
7 they who trample the head of the poor into the dust of the earth,
   and push the afflicted out of the way;
father and son go in to the same girl,
   so that my holy name is profaned;
8 they lay themselves down beside every altar
   on garments taken in pledge;
and in the house of their God they drink
   wine bought with fines they imposed.
