Justice (ṣͤdāqâ, dikaiosynē, iustitia) is originally rather "metaphysics" than essential ethical orientation of society. It is "God's milieu" in which the main being is a king and religious aspect is a cult. Justice signalizes the mystery of God's leverage in Israel and consecutively in the entire world. "Incarnation" of justice is practice guaranteed by the law regulation. In Israeli-Jewish history, the Lord's justice has been promoted mainly by prophets. The prophet Amos radically stood up for poor and exploited people. The justice will be realized only in eschatological future.
