Judgment on Neighbor Nations

1 The words of Amos, who was among the 1sheepherders from 2Tekoa, which he aenvisioned in visions concerning Israel in the days of 3Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of 4Jeroboam son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the 5earthquake. 2 He said, "The 6LORD roars from Zion And from Jerusalem He utters His voice ; And the shepherds' 7pasture grounds mourn, And the b8summit of Carmel dries up." 3 Thus says the LORD, "For 9three transgressions of 10Damascus and for four I will not crevoke its punishment, Because they threshed Gilead with implements of sharp iron. 4 "So I will send fire upon the house of Hazael And it will consume the citadels of 11Ben-hadad. 5 "I will also 12break the gate bar of Damascus, And cut off the inhabitant from the dvalley of Aven, And him who holds the scepter, from Beth-eden ; So the people of Aram will go exiled to 13Kir," Says the LORD. 6 Thus says the LORD, "For three transgressions of 14Gaza and for four I will not revoke its punishment, Because they deported an entire population To 15deliver it up to Edom. 7 "So I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza And it will consume her citadels. 8 "I will also cut off the inhabitant from 16Ashdod, And him who holds the scepter, from 17Ashkelon ; I will even eunleash My fpower upon Ekron, And the remnant of the 18Philistines will perish," Says the Lord gGOD. 9 Thus says the LORD, "For three transgressions of 19Tyre and for four I will not revoke its punishment, Because they delivered up an entire population to Edom And did not remember the covenant of h20brotherhood. 10 "So I will 21send fire upon the wall of Tyre And it will consume her citadels." 11 Thus says the LORD, "For three transgressions of 22Edom and for four I will not revoke its punishment, Because he 23pursued his brother with the sword, While he istifled his compassion ; His anger also 24tore continually, And he maintained his fury forever. 12 "So I will send fire upon 25Teman And it will consume the citadels of Bozrah." 13 Thus says the LORD, "For three transgressions of the sons of 26Ammon and for four I will not revoke its punishment, Because they 27ripped open the pregnant women of Gilead In order to 28enlarge their borders. 14 "So I will kindle a fire on the wall of 29Rabbah And it will consume her citadels Amid j30war cries on the day of battle, And a 31storm on the day of tempest. 15 "Their 32king will go into exile, He and his princes together," says the LORD.
