Amos 6:1-7

NLT 1 What sorrow awaits you who lounge in luxury in Jerusalem, and you who feel secure in Samaria! You are famous and popular in Israel, and people go to you for help. NIV 1 Woe to you who are complacent in Zion, and to you who feel secure on Mount Samaria, you notable men of the foremost nation, to whom the people of Israel come! NLT 2 But go over to Calneh and see what happened there. Then go to the great city of Hamath and down to the Philistine city of Gath. You are no better than they were, and look at how they were destroyed. NIV 2 Go to Calneh and look at it; go from there to great Hamath, and then go down to Gath in Philistia. Are they better off than your two kingdoms? Is their land larger than yours? NLT 3 You push away every thought of coming disaster, but your actions only bring the day of judgment closer. NIV 3 You put off the evil day and bring near a reign of terror. NLT 4 How terrible for you who sprawl on ivory beds and lounge on your couches, eating the meat of tender lambs from the flock and of choice calves fattened in the stall. NIV 4 You lie on beds inlaid with ivory and lounge on your couches. You dine on choice lambs and fattened calves. NLT 5 You sing trivial songs to the sound of the harp and fancy yourselves to be great musicians like David. NIV 5 You strum away on your harps like David and improvise on musical instruments. NLT 6 You drink wine by the bowlful and perfume yourselves with fragrant lotions. You care nothing about the ruin of your nation. NIV 6 You drink wine by the bowlful and use the finest lotions, but you do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph. NLT 7 Therefore, you will be the first to be led away as captives. Suddenly, all your parties will end. NIV 7 Therefore you will be among the first to go into exile; your feasting and lounging will end.
