Amos 7:7-17

CEB 7 says the LORD God. This is what the LORD showed me: The LORD was standing by a wall, with a plumb line in his hand. NRS 7 This is what he showed me: the Lord was standing beside a wall built with a plumb line, with a plumb line in his hand. CEB 8 The LORD said to me, "Amos, what do you see?" "A plumb line," I said. Then the LORD said, "See, I am setting a plumb line in the middle of my people Israel. I will never again forgive them. NRS 8 And the Lord said to me, "Amos, what do you see?" And I said, "A plumb line." Then the Lord said, "See, I am setting a plumb line in the midst of my people Israel; I will never again pass them by; CEB 9 The shrines of Isaac will be made desolate, and the holy places of Israel will be laid waste, and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword." NRS 9 the high places of Isaac shall be made desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste, and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword." CEB 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. NRS 10 Then Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, sent to King Jeroboam of Israel, saying, "Amos has conspired against you in the very center of the house of Israel; the land is not able to bear all his words. CEB 11 Amos has said, ‘Jeroboam will die by the sword, and Israel will be forced out of its land.'" NRS 11 For thus Amos has said, "Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel must go into exile away from his land.' " CEB 12 Amaziah said to Amos, "You who see things, go, run away to the land of Judah, eat your bread there, and prophesy there; NRS 12 And Amaziah said to Amos, "O seer, go, flee away to the land of Judah, earn your bread there, and prophesy there; CEB 13 but never again prophesy at Bethel, for it is the king's holy place and his royal house." NRS 13 but never again prophesy at Bethel, for it is the king's sanctuary, and it is a temple of the kingdom." CEB 14 Amos answered Amaziah, "I am not a prophet, nor am I a prophet's son; but I am a shepherd, and a trimmer of sycamore trees. NRS 14 Then Amos answered Amaziah, "I am no prophet, nor a prophet's son; but I am a herdsman, and a dresser of sycamore trees, CEB 15 But the LORD took me from shepherding the flock, and the LORD said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.' NRS 15 and the Lord took me from following the flock, and the Lord said to me, "Go, prophesy to my people Israel.' CEB 16 “Now then hear the LORD's word. You say, ‘Don't prophesy against Israel, and don't preach against the house of Isaac.' NRS 16 "Now therefore hear the word of the Lord. You say, "Do not prophesy against Israel, and do not preach against the house of Isaac.' CEB 17 “Therefore, the LORD proclaims: ‘Your wife will become a prostitute in the city, and your sons and your daughters will fall by the sword, and your land will be measured and divided up; you yourself will die in an unclean land, and Israel will surely be taken away from its land.'" NRS 17 Therefore thus says the Lord: "Your wife shall become a prostitute in the city, and your sons and your daughters shall fall by the sword, and your land shall be parceled out by line; you yourself shall die in an unclean land, and Israel shall surely go into exile away from its land.'
