Amos 8:4-10 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 Hear this, you who trample the needy and do away with the poor1 of the land,2 5 saying, "When will the New Moon3 be over that we may sell grain, and the Sabbath be ended that we may market4 wheat?"5-- skimping the measure, boosting the price and cheating6 with dishonest scales,7 6 buying the poor8 with silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, selling even the sweepings with the wheat.9 7 The LORD has sworn by the Pride of Jacob:10 "I will never forget11 anything they have done.12 8 "Will not the land tremble13 for this, and all who live in it mourn? The whole land will rise like the Nile; it will be stirred up and then sink like the river of Egypt.14 9 "In that day," declares the Sovereign LORD, "I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.15 10 I will turn your religious feasts16 into mourning and all your singing into weeping.17 I will make all of you wear sackcloth18 and shave19 your heads. I will make that time like mourning for an only son20 and the end of it like a bitter day.21
