Amos 9:5


9:5 The sovereign Lord who commands armies will do this. 1 

He touches the earth and it dissolves; 2 

all who live on it mourn.

The whole earth 3  rises like the River Nile, 4 

and then grows calm 5  like the Nile in Egypt. 6 

1 tn The words “will do this” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

2 tn Or “melts.” The verb probably depicts earthquakes and landslides. See v. 5b.

3 tn Heb “all of it.”

4 tn Heb “the Nile.” The word “River” is supplied in the translation for clarity.

5 tn Or “sinks back down.”

6 sn See Amos 8:8, which is very similar to this verse.
