Tree of Life Version
7 They trample the head of the poor
into the dust of the earth
and thwart the way of the humble.
A man and his father go to the same girl,[a]
to profane My holy Name.
8 Upon garments taken in pledge
they stretch out beside every altar,
and drink wine confiscated as fines
in the house of their gods.
9 “I destroyed the Amorite before them,
whose height was like cedars
and as strong as oaks—
yes, I destroyed his fruit from above
and his roots from beneath.
- Amos 2:7 Or, pagan temple prostitute.
