Amos 8:4-6 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
4 Hear this, you who trample the poor,
destroying the afflicted of the land
5 saying: ‘When will the New Moon be over,
so we may sell grain?
Or Shabbat, so we may open the wheat market?
—Let’s reduce the ephah measure
and increase the shekel,
cheat with deceitful balances,
6 buy the poor for silver,
the needy for a pair of sandals!
We’ll even sell the refuse of the grain!’”
