Amos 8:1-7 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 This is what the Lord God showed me—a basket of summer fruit. a 2 He said, "Amos, what do you see?" And I said, "A basket of summer fruit." b Then the Lord said to me, "The end c has come upon my people Israel; I will never again pass them by. 3 The songs of the temple d shall become wailings in that day," says the Lord God; "the dead bodies shall be many, cast out in every place. Be silent!" 4 Hear this, you that trample on the needy, and bring to ruin the poor of the land, 5 saying, "When will the new moon be over so that we may sell grain; and the sabbath, so that we may offer wheat for sale? We will make the ephah small and the shekel great, and practice deceit with false balances, 6 buying the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, and selling the sweepings of the wheat." 7 The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob: Surely I will never forget any of their deeds.
