Amos 8

NLT 1 Then the Sovereign LORD showed me another vision. In it I saw a basket filled with ripe fruit. NIV 1 This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: a basket of ripe fruit. NLT 2 “What do you see, Amos?” he asked. I replied, “A basket full of ripe fruit.” Then the LORD said, “Like this fruit, Israel is ripe for punishment! I will not delay their punishment again. NIV 2 “What do you see, Amos?” he asked. “A basket of ripe fruit,” I answered. Then the LORD said to me, “The time is ripe for my people Israel; I will spare them no longer. NLT 3 In that day the singing in the Temple will turn to wailing. Dead bodies will be scattered everywhere. They will be carried out of the city in silence. I, the Sovereign LORD, have spoken!” NIV 3 “In that day,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “the songs in the temple will turn to wailing. Many, many bodies—flung everywhere! Silence!” NLT 4 Listen to this, you who rob the poor and trample down the needy! NIV 4 Hear this, you who trample the needy and do away with the poor of the land, NLT 5 You can’t wait for the Sabbath day to be over and the religious festivals to end so you can get back to cheating the helpless. You measure out grain with dishonest measures and cheat the buyer with dishonest scales. NIV 5 saying, “When will the New Moon be over that we may sell grain, and the Sabbath be ended that we may market wheat?”— skimping on the measure, boosting the price and cheating with dishonest scales, NLT 6 And you mix the grain you sell with chaff swept from the floor. Then you enslave poor people for one piece of silver or a pair of sandals. NIV 6 buying the poor with silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, selling even the sweepings with the wheat. NLT 7 Now the LORD has sworn this oath by his own name, the Pride of Israel : “I will never forget the wicked things you have done! NIV 7 The LORD has sworn by himself, the Pride of Jacob: “I will never forget anything they have done. NLT 8 The earth will tremble for your deeds, and everyone will mourn. The ground will rise like the Nile River at floodtime; it will heave up, then sink again. NIV 8 “Will not the land tremble for this, and all who live in it mourn? The whole land will rise like the Nile; it will be stirred up and then sink like the river of Egypt. NLT 9 “In that day,” says the Sovereign LORD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth while it is still day. NIV 9 “In that day,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight. NLT 10 I will turn your celebrations into times of mourning and your singing into weeping. You will wear funeral clothes and shave your heads to show your sorrow— as if your only son had died. How very bitter that day will be! NIV 10 I will turn your religious festivals into mourning and all your singing into weeping. I will make all of you wear sackcloth and shave your heads. I will make that time like mourning for an only son and the end of it like a bitter day. NLT 11 “The time is surely coming,” says the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine on the land— not a famine of bread or water but of hearing the words of the LORD . NIV 11 “The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine through the land— not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD. NLT 12 People will stagger from sea to sea and wander from border to border searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it. NIV 12 People will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it. NLT 13 Beautiful girls and strong young men will grow faint in that day, thirsting for the LORD ’s word. NIV 13 “In that day “the lovely young women and strong young men will faint because of thirst. NLT 14 And those who swear by the shameful idols of Samaria— who take oaths in the name of the god of Dan and make vows in the name of the god of Beersheba — they will all fall down, never to rise again.” NIV 14 Those who swear by the sin of Samaria— who say, ‘As surely as your god lives, Dan,’ or, ‘As surely as the god of Beersheba lives’— they will fall, never to rise again.”
