Don’t prophesy any more at Bethel, because this is the king’s sanctuary and the temple of the kingdom."
"But no longer prophesy at Bethel, for it is a sanctuary of the king and a royal residence."
Don’t bother us here in Bethel with your prophecies, especially not here where the royal sanctuary is!"
Hang out there. Do your preaching there. But no more preaching at Bethel! Don't show your face here again. This is the king's chapel. This is a royal shrine."
But be a prophet no longer at Beth-el: for it is the holy place of the king, and the king’s house.
but never again prophesy at Bethel, for it is the king’s sanctuary, and it is a temple of the kingdom."
But never again prophesy at Bethel, For it is the king’s sanctuary, And it is the royal residence."

2 tn Heb “for it is a temple of a king and it is a royal house.” It is possible that the phrase “royal house” refers to a temple rather than a palace. See S. M. Paul, Amos (Hermeneia), 243.
