Amos 1:11; Amos 4:10; Amos 7:11; Amos 7:17; Amos 9:1; Amos 9:4; Amos 9:10
Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, and his anger did tear perpetually, and he kept his wrath for ever:
I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
For thus Amos saith , Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.
Therefore thus saith the LORD; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.
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 .
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.
All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say , The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.
