Amos 9

CEB 1 I saw the Lord standing beside the altar, and the Lord said: Strike the pillars until the foundations shake, shatter them on the heads of all the people. With the sword, I will kill the last of them; not one of them will flee, not one of them will escape. NRS 1 I saw the Lord standing beside the altar, and he said: Strike the capitals until the thresholds shake, and shatter them on the heads of all the people; and those who are left I will kill with the sword; not one of them shall flee away, not one of them shall escape. CEB 2 If they dig through into the underworld, from there my hand will take them. If they climb up to the heavens, from there I will bring them down. NRS 2 Though they dig into Sheol, from there shall my hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, from there I will bring them down. CEB 3 If they hide themselves on the top of Carmel, I will search for them there and remove them. If they hide from my sight at the bottom of the sea, I will give an order to the sea serpent, and it will bite them. NRS 3 Though they hide themselves on the top of Carmel, from there I will search out and take them; and though they hide from my sight at the bottom of the sea, there I will command the sea-serpent, and it shall bite them. CEB 4 If they are forced from their homes before their enemies, there I will give an order to the sword, and it will kill them. I will fix my eyes on them for harm and not for good. NRS 4 And though they go into captivity in front of their enemies, there I will command the sword, and it shall kill them; and I will fix my eyes on them for harm and not for good. CEB 5 The LORD, God of heavenly forces, touches the earth and it melts, and all who live in it are sick to death. All of it rises up like the Nile and sinks again, like the Nile of Egypt. NRS 5 The Lord, God of hosts, he who touches the earth and it melts, and all who live in it mourn, and all of it rises like the Nile, and sinks again, like the Nile of Egypt; CEB 6 It is the LORD who builds his upper rooms in the heavens and establishes his residence upon the earth; who summons the waters of the sea, and pours them out upon the face of the earth— the LORD is his name. NRS 6 who builds his upper chambers in the heavens, and founds his vault upon the earth; who calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out upon the surface of the earth— the Lord is his name. CEB 7 Aren't you like the Cushites to me, people of Israel? says the LORD. Haven't I brought Israel up from the land of Egypt, and the Philistines from Caphtor and the Arameans from Kir? NRS 7 Are you not like the Ethiopians to me, O people of Israel? says the Lord. Did I not bring Israel up from the land of Egypt, and the Philistines from Caphtor and the Arameans from Kir? CEB 8 Look, the LORD God is eyeing the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from the face of the earth. However, I won't destroy fully the house of Jacob, says the LORD. NRS 8 The eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from the face of the earth —except that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, says the Lord. CEB 9 Look, I am giving orders, and I will shake the house of Israel among all the nations as one sifts dirt with a screen, but no pebble will fall to the ground. NRS 9 For lo, I will command, and shake the house of Israel among all the nations as one shakes with a sieve, but no pebble shall fall to the ground. CEB 10 All the sinners of my people will die by the sword, those who say, "Evil won't overtake or meet us." NRS 10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, who say, "Evil shall not overtake or meet us." CEB 11 On that day I will raise up the meeting tent of David that has fallen, and repair its broken places. I will raise up its ruins, and I will rebuild it like a long time ago; NRS 11 On that day I will raise up the booth of David that is fallen, and repair its breaches, and raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old; CEB 12 so that they may possess what is left of Edom, as well as all the nations who are called by my name, says the LORD who will do this. NRS 12 in order that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations who are called by my name, says the Lord who does this. CEB 13 The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when the one who plows will overtake the one who gathers, when the one who crushes grapes will overtake the one who sows the seed. The mountains will drip wine, and all the hills will flow with it. NRS 13 The time is surely coming, says the Lord, when the one who plows shall overtake the one who reaps, and the treader of grapes the one who sows the seed; the mountains shall drip sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it. CEB 14 I will improve the circumstances of my people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; and they will make gardens and eat their fruit. NRS 14 I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine, and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit. CEB 15 I will plant them upon their land, and they will never again be plucked up out of the land that I have given them, says the LORD your God. NRS 15 I will plant them upon their land, and they shall never again be plucked up out of the land that I have given them, says the Lord your God.
