Amos 6

ESV 1 "Woe to those who are at ease in Zion, and to those who feel secure on the mountain of Samaria, the notable men of the first of the nations, to whom the house of Israel comes! 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! ESV 2 Pass over to Calneh, and see, and from there go to Hamath the great; then go down to Gath of the Philistines. Are you better than these kingdoms? Or is their territory greater than your territory, NIV 2 Go to Kalneh 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? ESV 3 O you who put far away the day of disaster and bring near the seat of violence? NIV 3 You put off the day of disaster and bring near a reign of terror. ESV 4 "Woe to those who lie on beds of ivory and stretch themselves out on their couches, and eat lambs from the flock and calves from the midst of the stall, NIV 4 You lie on beds adorned with ivory and lounge on your couches. You dine on choice lambs and fattened calves. ESV 5 who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp and like David invent for themselves instruments of music, NIV 5 You strum away on your harps like David and improvise on musical instruments. ESV 6 who drink wine in bowls and anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph! NIV 6 You drink wine by the bowlful and use the finest lotions, but you do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph. ESV 7 Therefore they shall now be the first of those who go into exile, and the revelry of those who stretch themselves out shall pass away." NIV 7 Therefore you will be among the first to go into exile; your feasting and lounging will end. ESV 8 The Lord GOD has sworn by himself, declares the LORD, the God of hosts: "I abhor the pride of Jacob and hate his strongholds, and I will deliver up the city and all that is in it." NIV 8 The Sovereign LORD has sworn by himself—the LORD God Almighty declares: “I abhor the pride of Jacob and detest his fortresses; I will deliver up the city and everything in it.” ESV 9 And if ten men remain in one house, they shall die. NIV 9 If ten people are left in one house, they too will die. ESV 10 And when one's relative, the one who anoints him for burial, shall take him up to bring the bones out of the house, and shall say to him who is in the innermost parts of the house, "Is there still anyone with you?" he shall say, "No"; and he shall say, "Silence! We must not mention the name of the LORD." NIV 10 And if the relative who comes to carry the bodies out of the house to burn them asks anyone who might be hiding there, “Is anyone else with you?” and he says, “No,” then he will go on to say, “Hush! We must not mention the name of the LORD.” ESV 11 For behold, the LORD commands, and the great house shall be struck down into fragments, and the little house into bits. NIV 11 For the LORD has given the command, and he will smash the great house into pieces and the small house into bits. ESV 12 Do horses run on rocks? Does one plow there with oxen? But you have turned justice into poison and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood-- NIV 12 Do horses run on the rocky crags? Does one plow the sea with oxen? But you have turned justice into poison and the fruit of righteousness into bitterness— ESV 13 you who rejoice in Lo-debar, who say, "Have we not by our own strength captured Karnaim for ourselves?" NIV 13 you who rejoice in the conquest of Lo Debarand say, “Did we not take Karnaim by our own strength?” ESV 14 "For behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel," declares the LORD, the God of hosts; "and they shall oppress you from Lebo-hamath to the Brook of the Arabah." NIV 14 For the LORD God Almighty declares, “I will stir up a nation against you, Israel, that will oppress you all the way from Lebo Hamath to the valley of the Arabah.”
