Amos 9:1-10 KJV

1 I saw the Lord standing upon the altar: and he said , Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake : and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away , and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered .
2 Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down :
3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them:
4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies , thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.
5 And the Lord GOD of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt , and all that dwell therein shall mourn : and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned , as by the flood of Egypt.
6 It is he that buildeth his storiesa in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.
