Amos 5:22-23


5:22 Even if you offer me burnt and grain offerings, 1  I will not be satisfied;

I will not look with favor on your peace offerings of fattened calves. 2 

5:23 Take away from me your 3  noisy songs;

I don’t want to hear the music of your stringed instruments. 4 

1 tn Heb “burnt offerings and your grain offerings.”

2 tn Heb “Peace offering[s], your fattened calves, I will not look at.”

3 tn In this verse the second person suffixes are singular and not plural like they are in vv. 21-22 and vv. 25-27. Some have suggested that perhaps a specific individual or group within the nation is in view.

4 tn The Hebrew word probably refers to “harps” (NASB, NIV, NRSV) or “lutes” (NEB).
