Amos 7:8-9

7:8 The Lord said to me, “What do you see, Amos?” I said, “Tin.” The sovereign One then said,

“Look, I am about to place tin among my people Israel.

I will no longer overlook their sin. 1 

7:9 Isaac’s centers of worship 2  will become desolate;

Israel’s holy places will be in ruins.

I will attack Jeroboam’s dynasty with the sword.” 3 

Amos 7:17


7:17 “Therefore this is what the Lord says:

‘Your wife will become a prostitute in the streets 4 

and your sons and daughters will die violently. 5 

Your land will be given to others 6 

and you will die in a foreign 7  land.

Israel will certainly be carried into exile 8  away from its land.’”

1 tn Heb “And I will no longer pass over him.”

2 tn Traditionally, “the high places” (so KJV, NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV); NLT “pagan shrines.”

3 tn Heb “And I will rise up against the house of Jeroboam with a sword.”

4 tn Heb “in the city,” that is, “in public.”

5 tn Heb “will fall by the sword.”

6 tn Heb “will be divided up with a [surveyor’s] measuring line.”

7 tn Heb “[an] unclean”; or “[an] impure.” This fate would be especially humiliating for a priest, who was to distinguish between the ritually clean and unclean (see Lev 10:10).

8 tn See the note on the word “exile” in 5:5.
