What we encounter in the world is not neutral, impersonal being, things, forces, forms colors. What we encounter is full of God's kindness, justice, and righteousness. "The earth is full of the kindness (chesed) of the Lord" (Psalms 33:5)...Kindness, justice, and righteousness are heaven's part in life. Its perception is the prophet's daily experience and the spring of joy.
What the prophets proclaim is God's intimate relatedness to man...It is a thought staggering and hardly compatible with any rational approach to the understanding of God, that the Creator of heaven and earth should care about how an obscure individual man behaves toward poor widows and orphans.
God's concern for justice grows out of His compassion for man. The prophets do not speak of a divine relationship to an absolute principle or idea, called justice. They are intoxicated with the awareness of God's relationship to His people and to all men.
