Amos 3:3-13 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
3 Do two men walk together unless they have made an aappointment? 4 Does a 1lion roar in the forest when he has no prey? Does a young lion bgrowl from his den unless he has captured something? 5 Does a bird fall into a trap on the ground when there is no cbait in it? Does a trap spring up from the earth when it captures nothing at all? 6 If a 2trumpet is blown in a city will not the people tremble? If a 3calamity occurs in a city has not the LORD done it? 7 dSurely the Lord eGOD does nothing Unless He 4reveals His secret counsel To His servants the prophets. 8 A 5lion has roared! Who will not fear? The 6Lord fGOD has spoken! 7Who can but prophesy? 9 Proclaim on the citadels in 8Ashdod and on the citadels in the land of Egypt and say, "Assemble yourselves on the 9mountains of Samaria and see the great tumults within her and the 10oppressions in her midst. 10 "But they 11do not know how to do what is right," declares the LORD, "these who 12hoard up gviolence and devastation in their citadels." 11 Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, "An 13enemy, even one surrounding the land, Will pull down your hstrength from you And your 14citadels will be looted." 12 Thus says the LORD, "Just as the shepherd i15snatches from the lion's mouth a couple of legs or a piece of an ear, So will the sons of Israel dwelling in Samaria be jsnatched away - With the 16corner of a bed and the k17cover of a couch! 13 "Hear and 18testify against the house of Jacob," Declares the Lord GOD, the God of hosts.
