Amos 5:18-27 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
18 Alas, you who are longing for the 1day of the LORD, For what purpose will the day of the LORD be to you? It will be 2darkness and not light; 19 As when a man 3flees from a lion And a bear meets him, aOr goes home, leans his hand against the wall And a snake bites him. 20 Will not the day of the LORD be 4darkness instead of light, Even gloom with no brightness in it? 21 "I hate, I 5reject your festivals, Nor do I b6delight in your solemn assemblies. 22 "Even though you 7offer up to Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings, I will not accept them; And I will not even look at the 8peace offerings of your fatlings. 23 "Take away from Me the noise of your songs; I will not even listen to the sound of your harps. 24 "But let 9justice roll down like waters And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. 25 "c10Did you present Me with sacrifices and grain offerings in the wilderness for forty years, O house of Israel? 26 "11You also carried along dSikkuth your king and eKiyyun, your images, fthe star of your gods which you made for yourselves. 27 "Therefore, I will make you go into exile beyond Damascus," says the LORD, whose name is the God of hosts.
