Read it!: Amos 5
You hate the one who reproves in court
And despise him who tells truth.
Think it through:
Amos had so many terrible things to point out to the Israelites about their behavior and lifestyle. In Chapter 5, he talks about how Israel’s legal system was in trouble. Bribes and injustices were common. “One who reproves in court” is a person who is trying to be honest and seek justice. Apparently they were in the minority.
