1 Haec ostendit mihi Dominus Deus: et ecce canistrum pomorum.
2 Et dixit: "Quid tu vides, Amos?". Et dixi: "Canistrum pomorum". Et dixit Dominus ad me: "Venit finis super populum meum Israel; non adiciam ultra ignoscere ei.
3 Et lugent cantatrices palatii in die illa, dicit Dominus Deus; multa erunt cadavera, in omni loco proicientur: silentium.
4 Audite hoc, qui conteritis pauperem et deficere facitis egenos terrae,
5 dicentes: "Quando transibit neomenia, et venumdabimus merces? Et sabbatum, et aperiemus frumentum, ut imminuamus mensuram et augeamus siclum et supponamus stateras dolosas,
6 ut possideamus in argento egenos et pauperem pro calceamentis et quisquilias frumenti vendamus?" ".
7 Iuravit Dominus in superbia Iacob: "Non obliviscar in perpetuum omnia opera eorum.
8 Numquid super isto non commovebitur terra, et lugebit omnis habitator eius, et ascendet quasi fluvius universa, fervebit et decrescet quasi flumen Aegypti?
9 Et erit: in die illa, dicit Dominus Deus, occidere faciam solem in meridie et tenebrescere faciam terram in die luminis
10 et convertam festivitates vestras in luctum et omnia cantica vestra in planctum; et inducam super omnes lumbos saccum et super omne caput calvitium; et ponam eam quasi luctum unigeniti et novissima eius quasi diem amarum.
11 Ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus, et mittam famem in terram; non famem panis neque sitim aquae, sed audiendi verbum Domini".
12 Et fugient a mari usque ad mare; et ab aquilone usque ad orientem circuibunt, quaerentes verbum Domini, et non invenient.
13 In die illa deficient virgines pulchrae et adulescentes in siti.
14 Qui iurant in delicto Samariae et dicunt: "Vivit Deus tuus, Dan!" et "Vivit via, Bersabee!", et cadent et non resurgent ultra.
King James Version
1 Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.
2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.
3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord GOD: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.
4 ¶ Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,
5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?
6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?
7 The LORD hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.
8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:
10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
11 ¶ Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beer-sheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.
