Amos 2

Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
For three
<07969>
transgressions
<06588>
of Moab
<04124>_,
and for four
<0702>_,
I will not turn away
<07725> (8686)
[the punishment] thereof; because he burned
<08313> (8800)
the bones
<06106>
of the king
<04428>
of Edom
<0123>
into lime
<07875>_:
But I will send
<07971> (8765)
a fire
<0784>
upon Moab
<04124>_,
and it shall devour
<0398> (8804)
the palaces
<0759>
of Kerioth
<07152>_:
and Moab
<04124>
shall die
<04191> (8804)
with tumult
<07588>_,
with shouting
<08643>_,
[and] with the sound
<06963>
of the trumpet
<07782>_:
And I will cut off
<03772> (8689)
the judge
<08199> (8802)
from the midst
<07130>
thereof, and will slay
<02026> (8799)
all the princes
<08269>
thereof with him, saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
For three
<07969>
transgressions
<06588>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and for four
<0702>_,
I will not turn away
<07725> (8686)
[the punishment] thereof; because they have despised
<03988> (8800)
the law
<08451>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and have not kept
<08104> (8804)
his commandments
<02706>_,
and their lies
<03577>
caused them to err
<08582> (8686)_,
after
<0310>
the which their fathers
<01>
have walked
<01980> (8804)_:
But I will send
<07971> (8765)
a fire
<0784>
upon Judah
<03063>_,
and it shall devour
<0398> (8804)
the palaces
<0759>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
For three
<07969>
transgressions
<06588>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and for four
<0702>_,
I will not turn away
<07725> (8686)
[the punishment] thereof; because they sold
<04376> (8800)
the righteous
<06662>
for silver
<03701>_,
and the poor
<034>
for a pair of shoes
<05275>_;
That pant
<07602> (8802)
after the dust
<06083>
of the earth
<0776>
on the head
<07218>
of the poor
<01800>_,
and turn aside
<05186> (8686)
the way
<01870>
of the meek
<06035>_:
and a man
<0376>
and his father
<01>
will go
<03212> (8799)
in unto the [same] maid
<05291>_,
to profane
<02490> (8763)
my holy
<06944>
name
<08034>_:
{maid: or, young woman}
And they lay [themselves] down
<05186> (8686)
upon clothes
<0899>
laid to pledge
<02254> (8803)
by
<0681>
every altar
<04196>_,
and they drink
<08354> (8799)
the wine
<03196>
of the condemned
<06064> (8803)
[in] the house
<01004>
of their god
<0430>_.
{the condemned: or, such as have fined, or, mulcted}
Yet destroyed
<08045> (8689)
I the Amorite
<0567>
before
<06440>
them, whose height
<01363>
[was] like the height
<01363>
of the cedars
<0730>_,
and he [was] strong
<02634>
as the oaks
<0437>_;
yet I destroyed
<08045> (8686)
his fruit
<06529>
from above
<04605>_,
and his roots
<08328>
from beneath.
Also I brought you up
<05927> (8689)
from the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
and led
<03212> (8686)
you forty
<0705>
years
<08141>
through the wilderness
<04057>_,
to possess
<03423> (8800)
the land
<0776>
of the Amorite
<0567>_.
And I raised up
<06965> (8686)
of your sons
<01121>
for prophets
<05030>_,
and of your young men
<0970>
for Nazarites
<05139>_.
[Is it] not even thus, O ye children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_?
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
But ye gave the Nazarites
<05139>
wine
<03196>
to drink
<08248> (8686)_;
and commanded
<06680> (8765)
the prophets
<05030>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Prophesy
<05012> (8735)
not.
Behold, I am pressed
<05781> (8688)
under you, as a cart
<05699>
is pressed
<05781> (8686)
[that is] full
<04392>
of sheaves
<05995>_.
{I am...: or, I will press your place, as a cart full of sheaves presseth}
Therefore the flight
<04498>
shall perish
<06> (8804)
from the swift
<07031>_,
and the strong
<02389>
shall not strengthen
<0553> (8762)
his force
<03581>_,
neither shall the mighty
<01368>
deliver
<04422> (8762)
himself
<05315>_:
{himself: Heb. his soul, or, life}
Neither shall he stand
<05975> (8799)
that handleth
<08610> (8802)
the bow
<07198>_;
and [he that is] swift
<07031>
of foot
<07272>
shall not deliver
<04422> (8762)
[himself]: neither shall he that rideth
<07392> (8802)
the horse
<05483>
deliver
<04422> (8762)
himself
<05315>_.
And [he that is] courageous
<0533> <03820>
among the mighty
<01368>
shall flee away
<05127> (8799)
naked
<06174>
in that day
<03117>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{courageous: Heb. strong of his heart}
