Amos



Amos, chapter 1, New English Translation and King James Version

Chapter 1

New English Translation


   Introduction
   1 The following is a record of what Amos prophesied. He was one of the herdsmen from Tekoa. These prophecies about Israel were revealed to him during the time of King Uzziah of Judah and King Jeroboam son of Joash of Israel, two years before the earthquake.
   God Will Judge the Surrounding Nations
   2 Amos said: "The LORD comes roaring out of Zion; from Jerusalem he comes bellowing! The shepherds' pastures wilt; the summit of Carmel withers."
   3 This is what the LORD says: "Because Damascus has committed three crimes - make that four! - I will not revoke my decree of judgment. They ripped through Gilead like threshing sledges with iron teeth.
   4 So I will set Hazael's house on fire; fire will consume Ben Hadad's fortresses.
   5 I will break the bar on the gate of Damascus. I will remove the ruler from Wicked Valley, the one who holds the royal scepter from Beth Eden. The people of Aram will be deported to Kir." The LORD has spoken!
   6 This is what the LORD says: "Because Gaza has committed three crimes - make that four! - I will not revoke my decree of judgment. They deported a whole community and sold them to Edom.
   7 So I will set Gaza's city wall on fire; fire will consume her fortresses.
   8 I will remove the ruler from Ashdod, the one who holds the royal scepter from Ashkelon. I will strike Ekron with my hand; the rest of the Philistines will also die." The sovereign LORD has spoken!
   9 This is what the LORD says: "Because Tyre has committed three crimes - make that four! - I will not revoke my decree of judgment. They sold a whole community to Edom; they failed to observe a treaty of brotherhood.
   10 So I will set fire to Tyre's city wall; fire will consume her fortresses."
   11 This is what the LORD says: "Because Edom has committed three crimes - make that four! - I will not revoke my decree of judgment. He chased his brother with a sword; he wiped out his allies. In his anger he tore them apart without stopping to rest; in his fury he relentlessly attacked them.
   12 So I will set Teman on fire; fire will consume Bozrah's fortresses."
   13 This is what the LORD says: "Because the Ammonites have committed three crimes - make that four! - I will not revoke my decree of judgment. They ripped open Gilead's pregnant women so they could expand their territory.
   14 So I will set fire to Rabbah's city wall; fire will consume her fortresses. War cries will be heard on the day of battle; a strong gale will blow on the day of the windstorm.
   15 Ammon's king will be deported; he and his officials will be carried off together." The LORD has spoken!

King James Version


   1 The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.
   2 And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.
   3 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron:
   4 But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall devour the palaces of Ben-hadad.
   5 I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.
   6 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom:
   7 But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof:
   8 And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon, and I will turn mine hand against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord GOD.
   9 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant:
   10 But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus, which shall devour the palaces thereof.
   11 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, and his anger did tear perpetually, and he kept his wrath for ever:
   12 But I will send a fire upon Teman, which shall devour the palaces of Bozrah.
   13 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:
   14 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in the day of battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind:
   15 And their king shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, saith the LORD.
