Then he showed me another vision. I saw the Lord standing beside a wall that had been built using a plumb line. He was checking it with a plumb line to see if it was straight.
And the LORD said to me, "Amos, what do you see?"I answered, "A plumb line."And the Lord replied, "I will test my people with this plumb line. I will no longer ignore all their sins.
The pagan shrines of your ancestors a and the temples of Israel will be destroyed, and I will bring the dynasty of King Jeroboam to a sudden end."
