Amos 3:6; Amos 5:13-15; Amos 6:3; Amos 9:4; Amos 9:10
Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid ? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time.
Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live : and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken .
Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near ;
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.
