- 'You turn justice upside down and you throw on the ground what is right'. Amos is the best poet-prophet.

- God wants them to come back to Him or He'll destroy them. If this is about injustice and 'coming back to him' means practicing justice that makes sense, but it could be read with a God-as-abuser mindset - God is visiting truly horrible things upon them for their crimes.

- They hate truth and stands against evil, they walk on the poor and steal their food. God will make sure they do not live in their mansions or drink the wine from their vineyards.

- They hurt people who do right, take money to do wrong, and keep the poor from getting justice in court.

- Oh, he is telling them to do good and be fair and perhaps God will be kind.

- Let justice flow like a river, and let goodness flow like a stream that never stops.
