Amos 4:7-8


4:7 “I withheld rain from you three months before the harvest. 1 

I gave rain to one city, but not to another.

One field 2  would get rain, but the field that received no rain dried up.

4:8 People from 3  two or three cities staggered into one city to get 4  water,

but remained thirsty. 5 

Still you did not come back to me.”

The Lord is speaking!
