Amos 8

Thus hath the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
shewed
<07200> (8689)
unto me: and behold a basket
<03619>
of summer fruit
<07019>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Amos
<05986>_,
what seest
<07200> (8802)
thou? And I said
<0559> (8799)_,
A basket
<03619>
of summer fruit
<07019>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>
unto me, The end
<07093>
is come
<0935> (8804)
upon my people
<05971>
of Israel
<03478>_;
I will not again
<03254> (8686)
pass
<05674> (8800)
by them any more.
And the songs
<07892>
of the temple
<01964>
shall be howlings
<03213> (8689)
in that day
<03117>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_:
[there shall be] many
<07227>
dead bodies
<06297>
in every place
<04725>_;
they shall cast [them] forth
<07993> (8689)
with silence
<02013> (8761)_.
{shall be howlings: Heb. shall howl} {with...: Heb. be silent}
Hear
<08085> (8798)
this, O ye that swallow up
<07602> (8802)
the needy
<034>_,
even to make
<07673> (0)
the poor
<06041> (8675) <06035>
of the land
<0776>
to fail
<07673> (8687)_,
Saying
<0559> (8800)_,
When will the new moon
<02320>
be gone
<05674> (8799)_,
that we may sell
<07666> (8686)
corn
<07668>_?
and the sabbath
<07676>_,
that we may set forth
<06605> (8799)
wheat
<01250>_,
making the ephah
<0374>
small
<06994> (8687)_,
and the shekel
<08255>
great
<01431> (8687)_,
and falsifying
<05791> (8763)
the balances
<03976>
by deceit
<04820>_?
{new...: or, month} {set...: Heb. open} {falsifying...: Heb. perverting the balances of deceit}
That we may buy
<07069> (8800)
the poor
<01800>
for silver
<03701>_,
and the needy
<034>
for a pair of shoes
<05275>_;
[yea], and sell
<07666> (8686)
the refuse
<04651>
of the wheat
<01250>_?
The LORD
<03068>
hath sworn
<07650> (8738)
by the excellency
<01347>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
Surely I will never
<05331>
forget
<07911> (8799)
any of their works
<04639>_.
Shall not the land
<0776>
tremble
<07264> (8799)
for this, and every one mourn
<056> (8804)
that dwelleth
<03427> (8802)
therein? and it shall rise up
<05927> (8804)
wholly as a flood
<02975>_;
and it shall be cast out
<01644> (8738)
and drowned
<08257> (8738) (8675) <08248> (8738)_,
as [by] the flood
<0216>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
And it shall come to pass in that day
<03117>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
that I will cause the sun
<08121>
to go down
<0935> (8689)
at noon
<06672>_,
and I will darken
<02821> (8689)
the earth
<0776>
in the clear
<0216>
day
<03117>_:
And I will turn
<02015> (8804)
your feasts
<02282>
into mourning
<060>_,
and all your songs
<07892>
into lamentation
<07015>_;
and I will bring up
<05927> (8689)
sackcloth
<08242>
upon all loins
<04975>_,
and baldness
<07144>
upon every head
<07218>_;
and I will make
<07760> (8804)
it as the mourning
<060>
of an only
<03173>
[son], and the end
<0319>
thereof as a bitter
<04751>
day
<03117>_.
Behold, the days
<03117>
come
<0935> (8802)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
that I will send
<07971> (8689)
a famine
<07458>
in the land
<0776>_,
not a famine
<07458>
of bread
<03899>_,
nor a thirst
<06772>
for water
<04325>_,
but of hearing
<08085> (8800)
the words
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
And they shall wander
<05128> (8804)
from sea
<03220>
to sea
<03220>_,
and from the north
<06828>
even to the east
<04217>_,
they shall run to and fro
<07751> (8787)
to seek
<01245> (8763)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and shall not find
<04672> (8799)
[it].
In that day
<03117>
shall the fair
<03303>
virgins
<01330>
and young men
<0970>
faint
<05968> (8691)
for thirst
<06772>_.
They that swear
<07650> (8737)
by the sin
<0819>
of Samaria
<08111>_,
and say
<0559> (8804)_,
Thy god
<0430>_,
O Dan
<01835>_,
liveth
<02416>_;
and, The manner
<01870>
of Beersheba
<0884>
liveth
<02416>_;
even they shall fall
<05307> (8804)_,
and never rise up
<06965> (8799)
again. {manner: Heb. way}
