Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
10 Then Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, reported to Israel's King Jeroboam, "Amos has plotted against you within the house of Israel. The land isn't able to cope with everything that he is saying. 10 Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent a message to Jeroboam king of Israel: "Amos is raising a conspiracy against you in the very heart of Israel. The land cannot bear all his words.
11 Amos has said, ‘Jeroboam will die by the sword, and Israel will be forced out of its land.'" 11 For this is what Amos is saying: " 'Jeroboam will die by the sword, and Israel will surely go into exile, away from their native land.' "
12 Amaziah said to Amos, "You who see things, go, run away to the land of Judah, eat your bread there, and prophesy there; 12 Then Amaziah said to Amos, "Get out, you seer! Go back to the land of Judah. Earn your bread there and do your prophesying there.
13 but never again prophesy at Bethel, for it is the king's holy place and his royal house." 13 Don't prophesy anymore at Bethel, because this is the king's sanctuary and the temple of the kingdom."
