“The primary setting in which Israel experienced and celebrated justice was her worship. Worship in Israel was not a setting preoccupied with the other world, or with sacrifices only, which is a distorted picture. No, justice and the advancement of justice and the proclamation of justice was the very function of worship. ... Worship in Israel ... had in its center the experience of the gift of God’s justice and the proclamation of justice for the world and for Israel.”

Rolf Knierim in “Beyond Guilt” by George Johnson
