Amos 5:8-9

Context

5:8 (But there is one who made the constellations Pleiades and Orion;

he can turn the darkness into morning

and daylight 1  into night.

He summons the water of the seas

and pours it out on the earth’s surface.

The Lord is his name!

5:9 He flashes 2  destruction down upon the strong

so that destruction overwhelms 3  the fortified places.)

1 tn Heb “darkens the day into night.”

2 tn The precise meaning of the Hebrew verb בָּלַג (balag, translated here “flashes”) is uncertain.

3 tn Heb “comes upon.” Many prefer to repoint the verb as Hiphil and translate, “he brings destruction upon the fortified places.”
