Amos 5:19-20

5:19 Disaster will be inescapable,

as if a man ran from a lion only to meet a bear,

then escaped into a house,

leaned his hand against the wall,

and was bitten by a poisonous snake.

5:20 Don’t you realize the Lord’s day of judgment will bring darkness, not light –

gloomy blackness, not bright light?

tn The words “Disaster will be inescapable” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

tn Heb “went” (so KJV, NRSV).

tn Heb “Will not the day of the Lord be.”
