Amos 2:7-9 Expanded Bible (EXB)

They ·walk [trample] on ·poor people [L the heads of the poor] as if they were ·dirt [L the dust of the ground/earth],
    and they ·refuse to be fair to [deny justice to; or push away] those who are ·suffering [afflicted].
Fathers and sons ·have sexual relations with [L go in to] the same woman,
    and so they ·ruin [defile; profane] my holy name.
·As they worship at their altars [L Beside every altar],
    they lie down on clothes taken ·from the poor [L in pledge; C as collateral for a debt; Deut. 24:12–13].
They fine people,
    and with that money they buy wine to drink in the house of their god.

“But it was I who destroyed the Amorites before them,
    who were tall like cedar trees and as strong as oaks—
I destroyed ·them completely [L their fruit above and roots below].
