Amos 1
New Living Translation
1This message was given to Amos, a shepherd from the town of Tekoa in Judah. He received this message in visions two years before the earthquake, when Uzziah was king of Judah and Jeroboam II, the son of Jehoash, was king of Israel.H1697H5986H5349H8620H2372H3478H3117H5818H4428H3063H3117H3379H1121H3101H4428H3478H8141H6440H7494 2This is what he saw and heard. “The Lord’s voice will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem! The lush pastures of the shepherds will dry up; the grass on Mount Carmel will wither and die.”H559H3068H7580H6726H5414H6963H3389H4999H7462H56H7218H3760H3001

God’s Judgment on Israel’s Neighbors

3This is what the Lord says. “The people of Damascus have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! They beat down my people in Gilead as grain is threshed with iron sledges.H559H3068H7969H6588H1834H702H7725H1758H1568H2742H1270 4So I will send down fire on King Hazael’s palace, and the fortresses of King Ben-hadad will be destroyed.H7971H784H1004H2371H398H759H1130 5I will break down the gates of Damascus and slaughter the people in the valley of Aven. I will destroy the ruler in Beth-eden, and the people of Aram will go as captives to Kir,” says the Lord.H7665H1280H1834H3772H3427H1237H206H8551H7626H1004H5731H1040H5971H758H1540H7024H559H3068 6This is what the Lord says: “The people of Gaza have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! They sent whole villages into exile, selling them as slaves to Edom.H559H3068H7969H6588H5804H702H7725H1540H8003H1546H5462H123 7So I will send down fire on the walls of Gaza, and all its fortresses will be destroyed.H7971H784H2346H5804H398H759 8I will slaughter the people of Ashdod and destroy the king of Ashkelon. Then I will turn to attack Ekron, and the few Philistines still left will be killed,” says the Sovereign Lord.H3772H3427H795H8551H7626H831H7725H3027H6138H7611H6430H6H559H136H3069 9This is what the Lord says: “The people of Tyre have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! They broke their treaty of brotherhood with Israel, selling whole villages as slaves to Edom.H559H3068H7969H6588H6865H702H7725H5462H8003H1546H123H2142H251H1285 10So I will send down fire on the walls of Tyre, and all its fortresses will be destroyed.”H7971H784H2346H6865H398H759 11This is what the Lord says: “The people of Edom have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! They chased down their relatives, the Israelites, with swords, showing them no mercy. In their rage, they slashed them continually and were unrelenting in their anger.H559H3068H7969H6588H123H702H7725H7291H251H2719H7843H7356H639H2963H5703H8104H5678H5331 12So I will send down fire on Teman, and the fortresses of Bozrah will be destroyed.”H7971H784H8487H398H759H1224 13This is what the Lord says. “The people of Ammon have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! When they attacked Gilead to extend their borders, they ripped open pregnant women with their swords.H559H3068H7969H6588H1121H5983H702H7725H1234H2030H1568H7337H1366 14So I will send down fire on the walls of Rabbah, and all its fortresses will be destroyed. The battle will come upon them with shouts, like a whirlwind in a mighty storm.H3341H784H2346H7237H398H759H8643H3117H4421H5591H3117H5492 15And their king and his princes will go into exile together,” says the Lord.H4428H1980H1473H8269H3162H559H3068
