Amos 1:2-15

Judgment on Israel's Neighbors

2 And he said: 1"The LORD roars from Zion and utters his voice from Jerusalem; 2the pastures of the shepherds mourn, and the 3top of 4Carmel withers."
3 Thus says the LORD: 5"For three transgressions of 6Damascus, and for four, 7I will not revoke the punishment,a because they have threshed 8Gilead with threshing sledges of iron.
4 9So I will send a fire upon the house of 10Hazael, and it shall devour the strongholds of 11Ben-hadad.
5 I will 12break the gate-bar of 13Damascus, and cut off the inhabitants from the Valley of 14Aven,b and him who holds the scepter from 15Beth-eden; and the people of 16Syria shall go into exile to 17Kir," says the LORD.
6 Thus says the LORD: 18"For three transgressions of 19Gaza, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment, because 20they carried into exile a whole people to deliver them up to Edom.
7 So I will send a fire upon the wall of 21Gaza, and it shall devour her strongholds.
8 I will cut off the inhabitants from 22Ashdod, and him who holds the scepter from Ashkelon; I will turn my hand against Ekron, and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish," says the Lord GOD.
9 Thus says the LORD: 23"For three transgressions of 24Tyre, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment, because they delivered up a whole people to Edom, and did not remember the covenant of brotherhood.
10 So I will send a fire upon the wall of 25Tyre, and it shall devour her strongholds."
11 Thus says the LORD: 26"For three transgressions of 27Edom, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment, 28because he pursued his brother with the sword 29and cast off all pity, 30and his anger tore perpetually, 31and he kept his wrath forever.
12 So I will send a fire upon 32Teman, and it shall devour the strongholds of 33Bozrah."
13 Thus says the LORD: 34"For three transgressions of the 35Ammonites, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment, because 36they have ripped open pregnant women in 37Gilead, that they might enlarge their border.
14 So I will kindle a fire in the wall of 38Rabbah, 39and it shall devour her strongholds, with shouting on the day of battle, 40with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind;
15 and 41their king shall go into exile, he and his princesc together," says the LORD.
