One of the joys and frustrations of the English language is the size of its vocabulary. This enables us to make distinctions and to highlight nuances which might be lost elsewhere but sometimes it leads to compartmentalization. As a consequence, we have lost a sense of its social dimensions. The Torah embodied a vision of social righteousness.

The administration of justice was central to his role, and was seen in covenantal terms; for a king to be righteous was to be just in his relations with his subjects. But the sad reality was that the kings were not often righteous in their dealings with their subjects.

Bribery, oppression and favouritism were more characteristic of their reigns than generosity, justice and even-handedness. Into such a context, God sent his prophets.
Amos is the quintessential prophet of social justice but although others had a different focus to their message, social injustice is repeatedly part of the reason why God will bring judgement on the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. The whole of the book of Amos is about justice. Although he spoke at a time in which Jeroboam II had extended the borders of Israel and when Israel was outwardly as well-off and powerful as it had ever been, underneath the prosperous surface lay deep social divisions Amos In contravention of the principles underlying the Mosaic law, the distribution of wealth was becoming ever more unequal.
Amos uses this approach to make two important theological points.
Prophwyd y jubili, neu, Seren y Saint, Prophet of the jubilee, or, Star of the Saints. Welsh
Israel is judged for its lack of social justice. The poor and needy are oppressed, denied justice in the courts Amos , 10, 12, 15 and forced into slavery Amos —7; The goods of the poor are confiscated Amos , and their garments taken in pledge, in direct violation of Exodus —7 Amos Trade is dishonest, with prices inflated and crooked weights and measures used Amos Later, Jeremiah prophesied when Judah was about to be invaded and Jerusalem was about to fall. Jeremiah made plain just how highly God rates justice. He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well.

Jeremiah Ezekiel, writing at around the same time, offers a similar bleak assessment of the actions of the ruling class in Judah as a whole Ezekiel —16 , listing a catalogue of abuses with regard to the family, social justice, the temple cult, pagan worship, sexual matters, the legal system and economic justice. In all these areas, which cover the whole of social, economic and religious life, the people had violated the covenant and had forgotten the Lord Ezekiel ; cf.
Deuteronomy , Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. So the Lord Almighty was very angry. Injustice has consequences, and the ultimate consequence is the collapse of the civilization. Like a creeping parasite such as ivy, in the end it will strangle its host to death. In the New Testament, Jesus reaffirmed the importance of the call to justice. You should have practised the latter without leaving the former undone.
