"Saying, 'When will the New Moon be over that we may sell grain, and the Sabbath be ended that we may market wheat?”—skimping on the measure, boosting the price and cheating with dishonest scales, buying the poor with silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, selling even the sweepings with the wheat.'"    - Amos ; Amos 8.5

"Who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent."    - First Isaiah ; Isaiah 5.23

"Hear this, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right; who build Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with wickedness. Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they look for the LORD’S support and say, 'Is not the LORD among us? No disaster will come upon us.'”    - Micah ; Micah 3.9-11

"Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they carry it out  because it is in their power to do it. They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them.They defraud people of their homes, they rob them of their inheritance. Therefore, the LORD says: 'I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity.'"    - Micah ; Micah 2.1-3

"You levy a straw tax on the poor and impose a tax on their grain. Therefore, though you have built stone mansions, you will not live in them; though you have planted lush vineyards, you will not drink their wine. For I know how many are your offenses and how great your sins. There are those who oppress the innocent and take bribes and deprive the poor of justice in the courts."    - Amos ; Amos 5.11
