Amos 1

The words
<01697>
of Amos
<05986>_,
who was among the herdmen
<05349>
of Tekoa
<08620>_,
which he saw
<02372> (8804)
concerning Israel
<03478>
in the days
<03117>
of Uzziah
<05818>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and in the days
<03117>
of Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Joash
<03101>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
two years
<08141>
before
<06440>
the earthquake
<07494>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
The LORD
<03068>
will roar
<07580> (8799)
from Zion
<06726>_,
and utter
<05414> (8799)
his voice
<06963>
from Jerusalem
<03389>_;
and the habitations
<04999>
of the shepherds
<07462> (8802)
shall mourn
<056> (8804)_,
and the top
<07218>
of Carmel
<03760>
shall wither
<03001> (8804)_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
For three
<07969>
transgressions
<06588>
of Damascus
<01834>_,
and for four
<0702>_,
I will not turn away
<07725> (8686)
[the punishment] thereof; because they have threshed
<01758> (8800)
Gilead
<01568>
with threshing instruments
<02742>
of iron
<01270>_:
{and...: or, yea, for four} {turn...: or, convert it, or, let it be quiet}
But I will send
<07971> (8765)
a fire
<0784>
into the house
<01004>
of Hazael
<02371>_,
which shall devour
<0398> (8804)
the palaces
<0759>
of Benhadad
<01130>_.
I will break
<07665> (8804)
also the bar
<01280>
of Damascus
<01834>_,
and cut off
<03772> (8689)
the inhabitant
<03427> (8802)
from the plain
<01237>
of Aven
<0206>_,
and him that holdeth
<08551> (8802)
the sceptre
<07626>
from the house
<01004>
of Eden
<05731> (8677) <01040>_:
and the people
<05971>
of Syria
<0758>
shall go into captivity
<01540> (8804)
unto Kir
<07024>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{the plain...: or, Bikathaven} {the house...: or, Betheden}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
For three
<07969>
transgressions
<06588>
of Gaza
<05804>_,
and for four
<0702>_,
I will not turn away
<07725> (8686)
[the punishment] thereof; because they carried away captive
<01540> (8687)
the whole
<08003>
captivity
<01546>_,
to deliver [them] up
<05462> (8687)
to Edom
<0123>_:
{away captive...: or, them away with an entire}
But I will send
<07971> (8765)
a fire
<0784>
on the wall
<02346>
of Gaza
<05804>_,
which shall devour
<0398> (8804)
the palaces
<0759>
thereof:
And I will cut off
<03772> (8689)
the inhabitant
<03427> (8802)
from Ashdod
<0795>_,
and him that holdeth
<08551> (8802)
the sceptre
<07626>
from Ashkelon
<0831>_,
and I will turn
<07725> (8689)
mine hand
<03027>
against Ekron
<06138>_:
and the remnant
<07611>
of the Philistines
<06430>
shall perish
<06> (8804)_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
For three
<07969>
transgressions
<06588>
of Tyrus
<06865>_,
and for four
<0702>_,
I will not turn away
<07725> (8686)
[the punishment] thereof; because they delivered up
<05462> (8687)
the whole
<08003>
captivity
<01546>
to Edom
<0123>_,
and remembered
<02142> (8804)
not the brotherly
<0251>
covenant
<01285>_:
{the brotherly...: Heb. the covenant of brethren}
But I will send
<07971> (8765)
a fire
<0784>
on the wall
<02346>
of Tyrus
<06865>_,
which shall devour
<0398> (8804)
the palaces
<0759>
thereof.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
For three
<07969>
transgressions
<06588>
of Edom
<0123>_,
and for four
<0702>_,
I will not turn away
<07725> (8686)
[the punishment] thereof; because he did pursue
<07291> (8800)
his brother
<0251>
with the sword
<02719>_,
and did cast off
<07843> (8765)
all pity
<07356>_,
and his anger
<0639>
did tear
<02963> (8799)
perpetually
<05703>_,
and he kept
<08104> (8804)
his wrath
<05678>
for ever
<05331>_:
{did cast...: Heb. corrupted his compassions}
But I will send
<07971> (8765)
a fire
<0784>
upon Teman
<08487>_,
which shall devour
<0398> (8804)
the palaces
<0759>
of Bozrah
<01224>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
For three
<07969>
transgressions
<06588>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
and for four
<0702>_,
I will not turn away
<07725> (8686)
[the punishment] thereof; because they have ripped up
<01234> (8800)
the women with child
<02030>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
that they might enlarge
<07337> (8687)
their border
<01366>_:
{ripped...: or, divided the mountains}
But I will kindle
<03341> (8689)
a fire
<0784>
in the wall
<02346>
of Rabbah
<07237>_,
and it shall devour
<0398> (8804)
the palaces
<0759>
thereof, with shouting
<08643>
in the day
<03117>
of battle
<04421>_,
with a tempest
<05591>
in the day
<03117>
of the whirlwind
<05492>_:
And their king
<04428>
shall go
<01980> (8804)
into captivity
<01473>_,
he and his princes
<08269>
together
<03162>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
