In order to cover the scope of the assignment that I was asked to deal with in view of the consultation on Biblical mandates for relief and development, the present paper will mainly take into account the eighth century prophets (Jonas, Hosea, Amos, Isaiah and Joel). As we deal with the different aspects of the Old Testament world and life view as well as man’s responsibility in the spheres of reality and society, we shall refer primarily to Amos and Micah as their oracles deal with the questions at hand.
