Amos 5

Hear
<08085> (8798)
ye this word
<01697>
which I take up
<05375> (8802)
against you, [even] a lamentation
<07015>_,
O house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_.
The virgin
<01330>
of Israel
<03478>
is fallen
<05307> (8804)_;
she shall no more
<03254> (8686)
rise
<06965> (8800)_:
she is forsaken
<05203> (8738)
upon her land
<0127>_;
[there is] none to raise her up
<06965> (8688)_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
The city
<05892>
that went out
<03318> (8802)
[by] a thousand
<0505>
shall leave
<07604> (8686)
an hundred
<03967>_,
and that which went forth
<03318> (8802)
[by] an hundred
<03967>
shall leave
<07604> (8686)
ten
<06235>_,
to the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
unto the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
Seek
<01875> (8798)
ye me, and ye shall live
<02421> (8798)_:
But seek
<01875> (8799)
not Bethel
<01008>_,
nor enter
<0935> (8799)
into Gilgal
<01537>_,
and pass
<05674> (8799)
not to Beersheba
<0884>_:
for Gilgal
<01537>
shall surely
<01540> (8800)
go into captivity
<01540> (8799)_,
and Bethel
<01008>
shall come to nought
<0205>_.
Seek
<01875> (8798)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and ye shall live
<02421> (8798)_;
lest he break out
<06743> (8799)
like fire
<0784>
in the house
<01004>
of Joseph
<03130>_,
and devour
<0398> (8804)
[it], and [there be] none to quench
<03518> (8764)
[it] in Bethel
<01008>_.
Ye who turn
<02015> (8802)
judgment
<04941>
to wormwood
<03939>_,
and leave off
<03240> (8689)
righteousness
<06666>
in the earth
<0776>_,
[Seek him] that maketh
<06213> (8802)
the seven stars
<03598>
and Orion
<03685>_,
and turneth
<02015> (8802)
the shadow of death
<06757>
into the morning
<01242>_,
and maketh the day
<03117>
dark
<02821> (8689)
with night
<03915>_:
that calleth
<07121> (8802)
for the waters
<04325>
of the sea
<03220>_,
and poureth them out
<08210> (8799)
upon the face
<06440>
of the earth
<0776>_:
The LORD
<03068>
[is] his name
<08034>_:
That strengtheneth
<01082> (8688)
the spoiled
<07701>
against the strong
<05794>_,
so that the spoiled
<07701>
shall come
<0935> (8799)
against the fortress
<04013>_.
{spoiled: Heb. spoil}
They hate
<08130> (8804)
him that rebuketh
<03198> (8688)
in the gate
<08179>_,
and they abhor
<08581> (8762)
him that speaketh
<01696> (8802)
uprightly
<08549>_.
Forasmuch
<03282>
therefore as your treading
<01318> (8780)
[is] upon the poor
<01800>_,
and ye take
<03947> (8799)
from him burdens
<04864>
of wheat
<01250>_:
ye have built
<01129> (8804)
houses
<01004>
of hewn stone
<01496>_,
but ye shall not dwell
<03427> (8799)
in them; ye have planted
<05193> (8804)
pleasant
<02531>
vineyards
<03754>_,
but ye shall not drink
<08354> (8799)
wine
<03196>
of them. {pleasant...: Heb. vineyards of desire}
For I know
<03045> (8804)
your manifold
<07227>
transgressions
<06588>
and your mighty
<06099>
sins
<02403>_:
they afflict
<06887> (8802)
the just
<06662>_,
they take
<03947> (8802)
a bribe
<03724>_,
and they turn aside
<05186> (8689)
the poor
<034>
in the gate
<08179>
[from their right]. {a bribe: or, a ransom}
Therefore the prudent
<07919> (8688)
shall keep silence
<01826> (8799)
in that time
<06256>_;
for it [is] an evil
<07451>
time
<06256>_.
Seek
<01875> (8798)
good
<02896>_,
and not evil
<07451>_,
that ye may live
<02421> (8799)_:
and so the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>_,
shall be with you, as ye have spoken
<0559> (8804)_.
Hate
<08130> (8798)
the evil
<07451>_,
and love
<0157> (8798)
the good
<02896>_,
and establish
<03322> (8685)
judgment
<04941>
in the gate
<08179>_:
it may be that the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>
will be gracious
<02603> (8799)
unto the remnant
<07611>
of Joseph
<03130>_.
Therefore the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the Lord
<0136>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
thus; Wailing
<04553>
[shall be] in all streets
<07339>_;
and they shall say
<0559> (8799)
in all the highways
<02351>_,
Alas
<01930>_!
alas
<01930>_!
and they shall call
<07121> (8804)
the husbandman
<0406>
to mourning
<060>_,
and such as are skilful
<03045> (8802)
of lamentation
<05092>
to wailing
<04553>_.
And in all vineyards
<03754>
[shall be] wailing
<04553>_:
for I will pass
<05674> (8799)
through
<07130>
thee, saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Woe
<01945>
unto you that desire
<0183> (8693)
the day
<03117>
of the LORD
<03068>_!
to what end
<04100>
[is] it for you? the day
<03117>
of the LORD
<03068>
[is] darkness
<02822>_,
and not light
<0216>_.
As if a man
<0376>
did flee
<05127> (8799)
from
<06440>
a lion
<0738>_,
and a bear
<01677>
met
<06293> (8804)
him; or went
<0935> (8804)
into the house
<01004>_,
and leaned
<05564> (8804)
his hand
<03027>
on the wall
<07023>_,
and a serpent
<05175>
bit
<05391> (8804)
him.
[Shall] not the day
<03117>
of the LORD
<03068>
[be] darkness
<02822>_,
and not light
<0216>_?
even very dark
<0651>_,
and no brightness
<05051>
in it?
I hate
<08130> (8804)_,
I despise
<03988> (8804)
your feast days
<02282>_,
and I will not smell
<07306> (8686)
in your solemn assemblies
<06116>_.
{in...: or, your holy days}
Though ye offer
<05927> (8686)
me burnt offerings
<05930>
and your meat offerings
<04503>_,
I will not accept
<07521> (8799)
[them]: neither will I regard
<05027> (8686)
the peace offerings
<08002>
of your fat beasts
<04806>_.
{peace...: or, thank offerings}
Take thou away
<05493> (8685)
from me the noise
<01995>
of thy songs
<07892>_;
for I will not hear
<08085> (8799)
the melody
<02172>
of thy viols
<05035>_.
But let judgment
<04941>
run down
<01556> (8735)
as waters
<04325>_,
and righteousness
<06666>
as a mighty
<0386>
stream
<05158>_.
{run: Heb. roll}
Have ye offered
<05066> (8689)
unto me sacrifices
<02077>
and offerings
<04503>
in the wilderness
<04057>
forty
<0705>
years
<08141>_,
O house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_?
But ye have borne
<05375> (8804)
the tabernacle
<05522>
of your Moloch
<04428>
and Chiun
<03594>
your images
<06754>_,
the star
<03556>
of your god
<0430>_,
which ye made
<06213> (8804)
to yourselves. {the tabernacle...: or, Siccuth your king}
Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity
<01540> (8689)
beyond
<01973>
Damascus
<01834>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
whose name
<08034>
[is] The God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>_.
