Amos, chapter 9, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 9


   1 Vidi Dominum stantem super altare, et dixit: "Percute capitellum, et commoveantur superliminaria; frange eos in capite omnes, et novissimum eorum in gladio interficiam; non fugiet ex eis fugitivus, et non salvabitur superstes eis.
   2 Si descenderint usque ad infernum, inde manus mea educet eos; et si ascenderint usque in caelum, inde detraham eos.
   3 Et si absconditi fuerint in vertice Carmeli, inde quaeram et auferam eos; et si celaverint se ab oculis meis in profundo maris, ibi mandabo serpenti, et mordebit eos;
   4 et si abierint in captivitatem coram inimicis suis, ibi mandabo gladio, et occidet eos, et ponam oculos meos super eos in malum et non in bonum".
   5 Et Dominus, Deus exercituum, qui tangit terram, et tabescet. Et lugebunt omnes habitantes in ea; et ascendet sicut fluvius ea omnis et decrescet sicut flumen Aegypti.
   6 Qui aedificat in caelo ascensus suos et cameram suam super terram fundat, qui vocat aquas maris et effundit eas super faciem terrae; Dominus nomen eius.
   7 "Numquid non ut filii Aethiopum vos estis mihi, filii Israel?, ait Dominus. Numquid non Israel ascendere feci de terra Aegypti et Philisthim de Caphtor et Syros de Cir?
   8 Ecce oculi Domini Dei super regnum peccans, et conteram illud a facie terrae; verumtamen conterens non conteram domum Iacob, dicit Dominus.
   9 Ecce enim mandabo ego et concutiam in omnibus gentibus domum Israel, sicut concutitur triticum in cribro, et non cadet lapillus super terram.
   10 In gladio morientur omnes peccatores populi mei, qui dicunt: "Non appropinquabit et non veniet super nos malum".
   11 In die illa suscitabo tabernaculum David, quod cecidit, et reaedificabo rupturas eius; et ea, quae corruerant, instaurabo et reaedificabo illud sicut diebus antiquis,
   12 ut possideant reliquias Edom et omnes nationes, super quas invocatum est nomen meum, dicit Dominus, qui faciet haec.
   13 Ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus, et comprehendet arator messorem, et calcator uvae mittentem semen; et stillabunt montes mustum, et omnes colles liquefient.
   14 Et convertam captivitatem populi mei Israel; et aedificabunt civitates vastatas et inhabitabunt et plantabunt vineas et bibent vinum earum et facient hortos et comedent fructus eorum.
   15 Et plantabo eos super humum suam, et non evellentur ultra de terra sua, quam dedi eis", dicit Dominus Deus tuus.

King James Version

   1 I saw the Lord standing upon the altar: and he said, Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake: and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered.
   2 Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down:
   3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them:
   4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.
   5 And the Lord GOD of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
   6 It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.
   7 Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?
   8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD.
   9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
   10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.
   11 ¶ In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
   12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.
   13 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
   14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
   15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
