Amos 6
New Living Translation
6What sorrow awaits you who lounge in luxury in Jerusalem, and you who feel secure in Samaria! You are famous and popular in Israel, and people go to you for help.H1945H7600H6726H982H2022H8111H5344H7225H1471H1004H3478H935 2But go over to Calneh and see what happened there. Then go to the great city of Hamath and down to the Philistine city of Gath. You are no better than they were, and look at how they were destroyed.H5674H3641H7200H3212H2574H7227H2579H3381H1661H6430H2896H4467H1366H7227H1366 3You push away every thought of coming disaster, but your actions only bring the day of judgment closer.H5077H7451H3117H7675H2555H5066 4How terrible for you who sprawl on ivory beds and lounge on your couches, eating the meat of tender lambs from the flock and of choice calves fattened in the stall.H7901H4296H8127H5628H6210H398H3733H6629H5695H8432H4770 5You sing trivial songs to the sound of the harp and fancy yourselves to be great musicians like David.H6527H6310H5035H2803H3627H7892H1732 6You drink wine by the bowlful and perfume yourselves with fragrant lotions. You care nothing about the ruin of your nation.H8354H3196H4219H4886H7225H8081H2470H7667H3130 7Therefore, you will be the first to be led away as captives. Suddenly, all your parties will end.H1540H7218H1540H4797H5628H5493 8The Sovereign Lord has sworn by his own name, and this is what he, the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, says: “I despise the arrogance of Israel, and I hate their fortresses. I will give this city and everything in it to their enemies.”H136H3069H7650H5315H5002H3068H430H6635H8374H1347H3290H8130H759H5462H5892H4393 9(If there are ten men left in one house, they will all die.H3498H6235H582H259H1004H4191 10And when a relative who is responsible to dispose of the dead goes into the house to carry out the bodies, he will ask the last survivor, “Is anyone else with you?” When the person begins to swear, “No, by . . .,” he will interrupt and say, “Stop! Don’t even mention the name of the Lord.”)H1730H5375H5635H3318H6106H1004H559H3411H1004H559H657H559H2013H2142H8034H3068 11When the Lord gives the command, homes both great and small will be smashed to pieces.H3068H6680H5221H1419H1004H7447H6996H1004H1233 12Can horses gallop over boulders? Can oxen be used to plow them? But that’s how foolish you are when you turn justice into poison and the sweet fruit of righteousness into bitterness.H5483H7323H5553H2790H1241H2015H4941H7219H6529H6666H3939 13And you brag about your conquest of Lo-debar. You boast, “Didn’t we take Karnaim by our own strength?”H8056H1697H3808H559H3947H7161H2392 14“O people of Israel, I am about to bring an enemy nation against you,” says the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies. “They will oppress you throughout your land—from Lebo-hamath in the north to the Arabah Valley in the south.”H6965H1471H1004H3478H5002H3068H430H6635H3905H935H2574H5158H6160
