Amos 2:11-16

NRS 11 And I raised up some of your children to be prophets and some of your youths to be nazirites. Is it not indeed so, O people of Israel? says the Lord. NIV 11 I also raised up prophets from among your sons and Nazirites from among your young men. Is this not true, people of Israel?" declares the LORD. NRS 12 But you made the nazirites drink wine, and commanded the prophets, saying, "You shall not prophesy." NIV 12 "But you made the Nazirites drink wine and commanded the prophets not to prophesy. NRS 13 So, I will press you down in your place, just as a cart presses down when it is full of sheaves. NIV 13 "Now then, I will crush you as a cart crushes when loaded with grain. NRS 14 Flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not retain their strength, nor shall the mighty save their lives; NIV 14 The swift will not escape, the strong will not muster their strength, and the warrior will not save his life. NRS 15 those who handle the bow shall not stand, and those who are swift of foot shall not save themselves, nor shall those who ride horses save their lives; NIV 15 The archer will not stand his ground, the fleet-footed soldier will not get away, and the horseman will not save his life. NRS 16 and those who are stout of heart among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day, says the Lord. NIV 16 Even the bravest warriors will flee naked on that day," declares the LORD.
