Yahweh loves justice. Yahweh’s pursuit of justice and Yahweh’s injunction to practice justice are grounded in Yahweh’s love. Of course it is not the abstract entity ‘justice as such’ that God loves. What God loves is the presence of justice in society. And God loves the presence of justice in society not because it makes for a society whose excellence God admires, but because God loves the members of society-loves them, too, not with the love of admiration but with the love of benevolent desire. God desires that each and every human being shall flourish , that each and every shall experience what the Old Testament writers call shalom. Injustice is perforce the impairment of shalom. That is why God loves justice. God desires the flourishing of each and every one of God’s human creatures; justice is indispensable to that. Love and justice are not pitted against each other but intertwined.
