• Amos 5:5-16
    But do not seek Bethel,
    Nor enter Gilgal,
    Nor pass over to Beersheba;
    For Gilgal shall surely go into captivity,
    And Bethel shall come to nothing.
    Seek the LORD and live,
    Lest He break out like fire in the house of Joseph,
    And devour it,
    With no one to quench it in Bethel—
    You who turn justice to wormwood,
    And lay righteousness to rest in the earth!"
    He made the Pleiades and Orion;
    He turns the shadow of death into morning
    And makes the day dark as night;
    He calls for the waters of the sea
    And pours them out on the face of the earth;
    The LORD is His name.
    He rains ruin upon the strong,
    So that fury comes upon the fortress.
    They hate the one who rebukes in the gate,
    And they abhor the one who speaks uprightly.
    Therefore, because you tread down the poor
    And take grain taxes from him,
    Though you have built houses of hewn stone,
    Yet you shall not dwell in them;
    You have planted pleasant vineyards,
    But you shall not drink wine from them.
    For I know your manifold transgressions
    And your mighty sins:
    Afflicting the just and taking bribes;
    Diverting the poor from justice at the gate.
    Therefore the prudent keep silent at that time,
    For it is an evil time.
    Seek good and not evil,
    That you may live;
    So the LORD God of hosts will be with you,
    As you have spoken.
    Hate evil, love good;
    Establish justice in the gate.
    It may be that the LORD God of hosts
    Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph. Therefore the LORD God of hosts, the Lord, says this:
    "There shall be wailing in all streets,
    And they shall say in all the highways,
    'Alas! Alas!'
    They shall call the farmer to mourning,
    And skillful lamenters to wailing.

     
  • Amos 5:18-26
    Woe to you who desire the day of the LORD!
    For what good is the day of the LORD to you?
    It will be darkness, and not light.
    It will be as though a man fled from a lion,
    And a bear met him!
    Or as though he went into the house,
    Leaned his hand on the wall,
    And a serpent bit him!
    Is not the day of the LORD darkness, and not light?
    Is it not very dark, with no brightness in it?
    "I hate, I despise your feast days,
    And I do not savor your sacred assemblies.
    Though you offer Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings,
    I will not accept them,
    Nor will I regard your fattened peace offerings.
    Take away from Me the noise of your songs,
    For I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments.
    But let justice run down like water,
    And righteousness like a mighty stream.
    "Did you offer Me sacrifices and offerings
    In the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?
    You also carried Sikkuth your king
    And Chiun, your idols,
    The star of your gods,
    Which you made for yourselves.

     
  • Amos 3:1-8
    Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying:
    "You only have I known of all the families of the earth;
    Therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities."
    Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
    Will a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey?
    Will a young lion cry out of his den, if he has caught nothing?
    Will a bird fall into a snare on the earth, where there is no trap for it?
    Will a snare spring up from the earth, if it has caught nothing at all?
    If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid?
    If there is calamity in a city, will not the LORD have done it?
    Surely the Lord GOD does nothing,
    Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
    A lion has roared!
    Who will not fear?
    The Lord GOD has spoken!
    Who can but prophesy?
     
  • Amos 4:1-7
    Hear this word, you cows of Bashan, who are on the mountain of Samaria,
    Who oppress the poor,
    Who crush the needy,
    Who say to your husbands, "Bring wine, let us drink!"
    The Lord GOD has sworn by His holiness:
    "Behold, the days shall come upon you
    When He will take you away with fishhooks,
    And your posterity with fishhooks.
    You will go out through broken walls,
    Each one straight ahead of her,
    And you will be cast into Harmon,"
    Says the LORD.
    "Come to Bethel and transgress,
    At Gilgal multiply transgression;
    Bring your sacrifices every morning,
    Your tithes every three days.
    Offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven,
    Proclaim and announce the freewill offerings;
    For this you love,
    You children of Israel!"
    Says the Lord GOD. "Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities.
    And lack of bread in all your places;
    Yet you have not returned to Me,"
    Says the LORD.
    "I also withheld rain from you,
    When there were still three months to the harvest.
    I made it rain on one city,
    I withheld rain from another city.
    One part was rained upon,
    And where it did not rain the part withered.

     
  • Amos 4:11-13
    "I overthrew some of you,
    As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
    And you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning;
    Yet you have not returned to Me,"
    Says the LORD.
    "Therefore thus will I do to you, O Israel;
    Because I will do this to you,
    Prepare to meet your God, O Israel!"
    For behold,
    He who forms mountains,
    And creates the wind,
    Who declares to man what his thought is,
    And makes the morning darkness,
    Who treads the high places of the earth—
    The LORD God of hosts is His name.
     
  • Amos 6:3-8
    Woe to you who put far off the day of doom,
    Who cause the seat of violence to come near;
    Who lie on beds of ivory,
    Stretch out on your couches,
    Eat lambs from the flock
    And calves from the midst of the stall;
    Who sing idly to the sound of stringed instruments,
    And invent for yourselves musical instruments like David;
    Who drink wine from bowls,
    And anoint yourselves with the best ointments,
    But are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.
    Therefore they shall now go captive as the first of the captives,
    And those who recline at banquets shall be removed.
    The Lord GOD has sworn by Himself,
    The LORD God of hosts says:
    " I abhor the pride of Jacob,
    And hate his palaces;
    Therefore I will deliver up the city
    And all that is in it."
     
  • Amos 2:1-8
    Thus says the LORD:
    “ For three transgressions of Moab, and for four,
    I will not turn away its punishment,
    Because he burned the bones of the king of Edom to lime.
    But I will send a fire upon Moab,
    And it shall devour the palaces of Kerioth;
    Moab shall die with tumult,
    With shouting and trumpet sound.
    And I will cut off the judge from its midst,
    And slay all its princes with him,”
    Says the LORD. Thus says the LORD:
    " For three transgressions of Judah, and for four,
    I will not turn away its punishment,
    Because they have despised the law of the LORD,
    And have not kept His commandments.
    Their lies lead them astray,
    Lies which their fathers followed.
    But I will send a fire upon Judah,
    And it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem." Thus says the LORD:
    " For three transgressions of Israel, and for four,
    I will not turn away its punishment,
    Because they sell the righteous for silver,
    And the poor for a pair of sandals.
    They pant after the dust of the earth which is on the head of the poor,
    And pervert the way of the humble.
    A man and his father go in to the same girl,
    To defile My holy name.
    They lie down by every altar on clothes taken in pledge,
    And drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.

     
  • Amos 6:1
    Woe to you who are at ease in Zion,
    And trust in Mount Samaria,
    Notable persons in the chief nation,
    To whom the house of Israel comes!

     
  • Amos 1:3-6
    Thus says the LORD:
    " For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four,
    I will not turn away its punishment,
    Because they have threshed Gilead with implements of iron.
    But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael,
    Which shall devour the palaces of Ben-Hadad.
    I will also break the gate bar of Damascus,
    And cut off the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven,
    And the one who holds the scepter from Beth Eden.
    The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir,"
    Says the LORD. Thus says the LORD:
    " For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four,
    I will not turn away its punishment,
    Because they took captive the whole captivity
    To deliver them up to Edom.

     
  • Amos 7:7-15
    Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand. And the LORD said to me, "Amos, what do you see?" And I said, "A plumb line." Then the Lord said:
    "Behold, I am setting a plumb line
    In the midst of My people Israel;
    I will not pass by them anymore.
    The high places of Isaac shall be desolate,
    And the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste.
    I will rise with the sword against the house of Jeroboam." Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, "Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel. The land is not able to bear all his words. For thus Amos has said:
    "Jeroboam shall die by the sword,
    And Israel shall surely be led away captive
    From their own land."" Then Amaziah said to Amos:
    "Go, you seer!
    Flee to the land of Judah.
    There eat bread,
    And there prophesy.
    But never again prophesy at Bethel,
    For it is the king's sanctuary,
    And it is the royal residence." Then Amos answered, and said to Amaziah:
    "I was no prophet,
    Nor was I a son of a prophet,
    But I was a sheepbreeder
    And a tender of sycamore fruit.
    Then the LORD took me as I followed the flock,
    And the LORD said to me,
    'Go, prophesy to My people Israel.'

     
  • Amos 9:11
    “ On that day I will raise up
    The tabernacle of David, which has fallen down,
    And repair its damages;
    I will raise up its ruins,
    And rebuild it as in the days of old;

     
  • Amos 9:13-15
    ' Behold, the days are coming,' says the LORD,
    ' When the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
    And the treader of grapes him who sows seed;
    The mountains shall drip with sweet wine,
    And all the hills shall flow with it.
    I will bring back the captives of My people Israel;
    They shall build the waste cities and inhabit them;
    They shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them;
    They shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them.
    I will plant them in their land,
    And no longer shall they be pulled up
    From the land I have given them,”
    Says the LORD your God.
     
  • Amos 1:9
    Thus says the LORD:

  • Amos 1:11
    Thus says the LORD:
    " For three transgressions of Edom, and for four,

    And cast off all pity;
    His anger tore perpetually,
    And he kept his wrath forever.

     
  • Amos 1:13
    Thus says the LORD:
    " For three transgressions of the people of Ammon, and for four,

    That they might enlarge their territory.

  • Amos 6:11-12
    For behold, the LORD gives a command:
    He will break the great house into bits,

    Yet you have turned justice into gall,
    And the fruit of righteousness into wormwood,

     
  • Amos 8:2-3
    And He said, "Amos, what do you see?" So I said, "A basket of summer fruit." Then the LORD said to me:

    Shall be wailing in that day,"

    They shall be thrown out in silence."

    falsifying the scales by deceit,
    That we may buy the poor for silver,
    And the needy for a pair of sandals—
    Even sell the bad wheat?"
