Amos 2
New Living Translation
2This is what the Lord says. “The people of Moab have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! They desecrated the bones of Edom’s king, burning them to ashes.H559H3068H7969H6588H4124H702H7725H8313H6106H4428H123H7875 2So I will send down fire on the land of Moab, and all the fortresses in Kerioth will be destroyed. The people will fall in the noise of battle, as the warriors shout and the ram’s horn sounds.H7971H784H4124H398H759H7152H4124H4191H7588H8643H6963H7782 3And I will destroy their king and slaughter all their princes,” says the Lord.H3772H8199H7130H2026H8269H559H3068

God’s Judgment on Judah and Israel

4This is what the Lord says. “The people of Judah have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! They have rejected the instruction of the Lord, refusing to obey his decrees. They have been led astray by the same lies that deceived their ancestors.H559H3068H7969H6588H3063H702H7725H3988H8451H3068H8104H2706H3577H8582H310H1H1980 5So I will send down fire on Judah, and all the fortresses of Jerusalem will be destroyed.”H7971H784H3063H398H759H3389 6This is what the Lord says: “The people of Israel have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! They sell honorable people for silver and poor people for a pair of sandals.H559H3068H7969H6588H3478H702H7725H4376H6662H3701H34H5275 7They trample helpless people in the dust and shove the oppressed out of the way. Both father and son sleep with the same woman, corrupting my holy name.H7602H6083H776H7218H1800H5186H1870H6035H376H1H3212H5291H2490H6944H8034 8At their religious festivals, they lounge in clothing their debtors put up as security. In the house of their god, they drink wine bought with unjust fines.H5186H899H2254H681H4196H8354H3196H6064H1004H430 9“But as my people watched, I destroyed the Amorites, though they were as tall as cedars and as strong as oaks. I destroyed the fruit on their branches and dug out their roots.H8045H567H6440H1363H1363H730H2634H437H8045H6529H4605H8328 10It was I who rescued you from Egypt and led you through the desert for forty years, so you could possess the land of the Amorites.H5927H776H4714H3212H705H8141H4057H3423H776H567 11I chose some of your sons to be prophets and others to be Nazirites. Can you deny this, my people of Israel?” asks the Lord.H6965H1121H5030H970H5139H1121H3478H5002H3068 12“But you caused the Nazirites to sin by making them drink wine, and you commanded the prophets, ‘Shut up!’H5139H3196H8248H6680H5030H559H5012 13“So I will make you groan like a wagon loaded down with sheaves of grain.H5781H5699H5781H4392H5995 14Your fastest runners will not get away. The strongest among you will become weak. Even mighty warriors will be unable to save themselves.H4498H6H7031H2389H553H3581H1368H4422H5315 15The archers will not stand their ground. The swiftest runners won’t be fast enough to escape. Even those riding horses won’t be able to save themselves.H5975H8610H7198H7031H7272H4422H7392H5483H4422H5315 16On that day the most courageous of your fighting men will drop their weapons and run for their lives,” says the Lord.H533H3820H1368H5127H6174H3117H5002H3068
