Amos 2:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 Thus says the LORD, "For three transgressions of 1Israel and for four I will not revoke its punishment, Because they 2sell the righteous for money And the needy for a pair of sandals. 7 "These who apant after the very dust of the earth on the head of the 3helpless Also 4turn aside the way of the humble; And a 5man and his father bresort to the same cgirl In order to profane My holy name. 8 "On garments 6taken as pledges they stretch out beside 7every altar, And in the house of their God they 8drink the wine of those who have been fined. 9 "Yet it was I who destroyed the 9Amorite before them, dThough his 10height was like the height of cedars And he was strong as the oaks; I even destroyed his 11fruit above and his root below . 10 "It was I who 12brought you up from the land of Egypt, And I led you in the wilderness 13forty years eThat you might take possession of the land of the 14Amorite. 11 "Then I 15raised up some of your sons to be prophets And some of your young men to be 16Nazirites. Is this not so, O sons of Israel?" declares the LORD. 12 "But you made the Nazirites drink wine, And you commanded the prophets saying, 'You 17shall not prophesy!' 13 "Behold, I am f18weighted down beneath you As a wagon gis weighted down when filled with sheaves. 14 "h19Flight will perish from the swift, And the stalwart will not strengthen his power, Nor the 20mighty man save his ilife. 15 "He who 21grasps the bow will not stand his ground, The swift of foot will not escape, Nor will he who rides the 22horse save his jlife. 16 "Even the kbravest among the warriors will 23flee naked in that day," declares the LORD.
