Amos 8: 4 Hear this, you who [a]swallow up the needy,
And make the poor of the land fail,
“When will the New Moon be past,
That we may sell grain?
And the Sabbath,
That we may trade wheat?
Making the ephah small and the shekel large,
Falsifying the scales by deceit,
6 That we may buy the poor for silver,
And the needy for a pair of sandals—
Even sell the bad wheat?”
We live today in an awful frontier tie of commercial chicanery and outright thievery. For every honest tradesperson or business there are many more completely dishonest and hapless swindlers and cheats out there. In the electronic world it is far worse. While in times past there may have been some altogether futile noises made about “cleaning things up there is still the enormous problem of the very nature of the human creature.
The natio of Israel had its “comeuppance” in captivity. It still availed nothing. How many warnings will we receive if we continue to neglect so great a salvation as has been wrought in the person of Jesus our Messiah.
Like the butcher in the above illustration there will be a horrible price to pay.
