This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me:1 a basket of ripe fruit.
"What do you see,2 Amos?3" he asked. "A basket4 of ripe fruit," I answered. Then the LORD said to me, "The time is ripe for my people Israel; I will spare them no longer.5
"In that day," declares the Sovereign LORD, "the songs in the temple will turn to wailing.6 Many, many bodies--flung everywhere! Silence!7"
