Amos 2:11-12


2:11 I made some of your sons prophets

and some of your young men Nazirites. 1 

Is this not true, you Israelites?”

The Lord is speaking!

2:12 “But you made the Nazirites drink wine; 2 

you commanded the prophets, ‘Do not prophesy!’

1 tn Or perhaps “religious devotees” (also in the following verse). The Hebrew term נָזִיר (nazir) refers to one who “consecrated” or “devoted” to God (see Num 6:1-21).

2 sn Nazirites were strictly forbidden to drink wine (Num 6:2-3).
