The prophets insisted on the doing of justice, as stated by Micah in his famous summary: “You know what the Lord requires of you: to do justice, to love fidelity to the covenant, and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8). Also expressed by Jeremiah when he was asked to be, as it were, the Hebrew ancestor of Diogenes: “Run to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem. Look and take note! Search her squares to see if you can find a man, one who does justice” (Jeremiah 5:1).
