Amos Chapter 1

1The words of Amos who was among the herdsmen from Tekoa, describing what he saw concerning Israel, in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, the king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.

2And he said,

“The Lord will roar from Zion,

And he will sound his voice from Jerusalem,

And the pastures of the shepherds will mourn,

And the summit of Carmel will dry up.”

3This is what the Lord says:

“For three transgressions of Damascus,

And for four,

I will not avert it,

Because of their threshing of Gilead

With iron threshing sledges.

4So I will send fire on the house of Hazael,

Which will consume the palaces of Ben-hadad.

5And I will break the gate-bar of Damascus,

And I will cut off the inhabitant from the lowland of Aven,

And him who wields the sceptre of Beth-eden.

And the people of Aramaea will go into captivity in Kir,

Says the Lord.”

6This is what the Lord says:

“For three transgressions of Gaza,

And for four,

I will not avert it,

Because of their act of taking a people entirely captive,

To deliver them to Edom.

7And I will send fire onto the wall of Gaza,

Which will consume her palaces.

8And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod,

And him who wields the sceptre from Ashkelon.

And I will turn my hand against Ekron,

And the remnants of the Philistines will perish,

Says my Lord the Lord.”

9This is what the Lord says:

“For three transgressions of Tyre,

And for four,

I will not avert it,

Because they delivered them up with a complete captivity to Edom,

And did not remember the brotherly covenant.

10And I will send fire onto the wall of Tyre,

Which will consume her palaces.”

11This is what the Lord says:

“For three transgressions of Edom,

And for four,

I will not avert it,

Because they pursued their brother with the sword,

And forswore compassion,

And their anger was perpetually tearing them to pieces,

And they retained their wrath unremittingly.

12And I will send fire on Teman,

Which will consume the palaces of Bozrah.”

13This is what the Lord says:

“For three transgressions of the sons of Ammon,

And for four,

I will not avert it,

Because of them ripping open the pregnant women of Gilead,

In order to widen their territory.

14And I will light a fire on the wall of Rabbah,

Which will consume her palaces,

With an alarm sound on the day of war,

With a storm on the day of the whirlwind.

15And their king will go into captivity,

He together with his princes,

Says the Lord.”
