Amos 8:4-14 VULA/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Latin Vulgate w/ Apocrypha (VULA) New International Version (NIV)
4 audite hoc qui conteritis pauperem et deficere facitis egenos terrae 4 Hear this, you who trample the needy and do away with the poor of the land,
5 dicentes quando transibit mensis et venundabimus merces et sabbatum et aperiemus frumentum ut inminuamus mensuram et augeamus siclum et subponamus stateras dolosas 5 saying, "When will the New Moon be over that we may sell grain, and the Sabbath be ended that we may market wheat?"-- skimping the measure, boosting the price and cheating with dishonest scales,
6 ut possideamus in argento egenos et pauperes pro calciamentis et quisquilias frumenti vendamus 6 buying the poor with silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, selling even the sweepings with the wheat.
7 iuravit Dominus in superbia Iacob si oblitus fuero usque ad finem omnia opera eorum 7 The LORD has sworn by the Pride of Jacob: "I will never forget anything they have done.
8 numquid super isto non commovebitur terra et lugebit omnis habitator eius et ascendet quasi fluvius universus et eicietur et defluet quasi rivus Aegypti 8 "Will not the land tremble for this, and all who live in it mourn? The whole land will rise like the Nile; it will be stirred up and then sink like the river of Egypt.
9 et erit in die illa dicit Dominus occidet sol meridie et tenebrescere faciam terram in die luminis 9 "In that day," declares the Sovereign LORD, "I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.
10 et convertam festivitates vestras in luctum et omnia cantica vestra in planctum et inducam super omne dorsum vestrum saccum et super omne caput calvitium et ponam eam quasi luctum unigeniti et novissima eius quasi diem amarum 10 I will turn your religious feasts into mourning and all your singing into weeping. I will make all of you wear sackcloth and shave your heads. I will make that time like mourning for an only son and the end of it like a bitter day.
11 ecce dies veniunt dicit Dominus et mittam famem in terram non famem panis neque sitim aquae sed audiendi verbum Domini 11 "The days are coming," declares the Sovereign LORD, "when I will send a famine through the land-- not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.
12 et commovebuntur a mari usque ad mare et ab aquilone usque ad orientem circumibunt quaerentes verbum Domini et non invenient 12 Men will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it.
13 in die illa deficient virgines pulchrae et adulescentes in siti 13 "In that day "the lovely young women and strong young men will faint because of thirst.
14 qui iurant in delicto Samariae et dicunt vivit deus tuus Dan et vivit via Bersabee et cadent et non resurgent ultra 14 They who swear by the shame of Samaria, or say, 'As surely as your god lives, O Dan,' or, 'As surely as the god of Beersheba lives'-- they will fall, never to rise again."
