Amos 2:7-9 International Children’s Bible (ICB)
7 They walk on poor people
as if they were dirt.
They refuse to be fair to those who are suffering.
Fathers and sons have physical relations with the same woman.
By doing this they ruin my holy name.
8 As they worship at their altars,
they lie down on clothes taken from poor people.
They make people pay money as punishment.
With that money they buy wine to drink in the house of their god.
9 “But it was I who destroyed the Amorites before them.
The Amorites were tall like cedar trees and as strong as oaks.
But I destroyed them completely.
