Amos 8:11-12


8:11 Be certain of this, 1  the time is 2  coming,” says the sovereign Lord,

“when I will send a famine through the land –

not a shortage of food or water

but an end to divine revelation! 3 

8:12 People 4  will stagger from sea to sea, 5 

and from the north around to the east.

They will wander about looking for a revelation from 6  the Lord,

but they will not find any. 7 

1 tn Heb “behold” or “look.”

2 tn Heb “the days are.”

3 tn Heb “not a hunger for food or a thirst for water, but for hearing the words of the Lord.”
