First Reading for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Amos 8:4-7

Summary: God condemns those who cheat and exploit the poor, vowing to remember their wrongdoings.

God's Warning to the Oppressors

Hear this, you who trample upon the needy and destroy the poor of the land!

“When will the new moon be over,” you ask, “that we may sell our grain, and the sabbath, that we may display the wheat?

We will diminish the ephah, add to the shekel, and fix our scales for cheating!

We will buy the lowly for silver, and the poor for a pair of sandals; even the refuse of the wheat we will sell!”

The LORD has sworn by the pride of Jacob: Never will I forget a thing they have done!
