Amos 7:10-17 (The Message)

View In My Bible
10 Amaziah, priest at the shrine at Bethel, sent a message to Jeroboam, king of Israel: "Amos is plotting to get rid of you; and he's doing it as an insider, working from within Israel. His talk will destroy the country. He's got to be silenced. Do you know what Amos is saying? 11 Jeroboam will be killed. Israel is headed for exile." 12 Then Amaziah confronted Amos: "Seer, be on your way! Get out of here and go back to Judah where you came from! 13 Hang out there. Do your preaching there. But no more preaching at Bethel! Don't show your face here again. This is the king's chapel. This is a royal shrine." 15 Then God took me off the farm and said, 'Go preach to my people Israel.' 16 "So listen to God's Word. You tell me, 'Don't preach to Israel. Don't say anything against the family of Isaac.' 17 But here's what God is telling you: Your wife will become a whore in town. Your children will get killed. Your land will be auctioned off. You will die homeless and friendless. And Israel will be hauled off to exile, far from home."
