What is injustice in the Bible


Jeremiah 22: 3-5 / KJV

Thus saith the LORD: Keep justice and righteousness, and deliver the robbed from the hand of the wicked, and do not torment strangers, orphans and widows, neither do violence nor shed innocent blood in this place. If you do this, kings who sit on David's throne are to enter through the gates of this house, on chariots and horses, with their servants and their people. But if you will not obey such a thing, I have sworn by myself, says the Lord, that this house will be destroyed.

Job 5: 8-16 / LUT

But I would turn to God and bring my cause before him, who does great things that cannot be explored, and miracles that cannot be counted: who gives rain on the land and lets water come to the fields; who exalts the lowly and lifts up the afflicted. It destroys the cunning attempts that it cannot carry out their hand; he catches the wise in their cunning and overthrows the wrong advice that they walk in the darkness during the day and grope at noon as in the night. He helps the poor with the sword, with their mouths, and with the hand of the mighty, and is the poor hope that wickedness will shut their mouths.

Exodus 23: 1-3 / LUT
