Amos Accused, Answers

10 Then Amaziah, the 1priest of Bethel, sent word to 2Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, "Amos has 3conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel; the land is unable * to endure all his words.
11 "For thus Amos says, 'Jeroboam will die by the sword and Israel will certainly go from its land into exile.' "
12 Then Amaziah said to Amos, "4Go, you seer, flee away to the land of Judah and there eat bread and there do your prophesying!
13 "But 5no longer * prophesy at Bethel, for it is a 6sanctuary of the king and a royal residence."
