Amos 7


Amos 7:1 Thus the Lord God showed me, and behold, He was forming a locust-swarm when the spring crop began to sprout. And behold, the spring crop was after the king's mowing.
Amos 7:2 And it came about, when it had finished eating the vegetation of the land, that I said," Lord God, please pardon! How can Jacob stand, For he is small?"
Amos 7:3 The Lord changed His mind about this." It shall not be," said the Lord.
Amos 7:4 Thus the Lord God showed me, and behold, the Lord God was calling to contend with them by fire, and it consumed the great deep and began to consume the farm land.
Amos 7:5 Then I said," Lord God, please stop! How can Jacob stand, for he is small?"
Amos 7:6 The Lord changed His mind about this." This too shall not be," said the Lord God.
Amos 7:7 Thus He showed me, and behold, the Lord was standing by a vertical wall with a plumb line in His hand.
Amos 7:8 The Lord said to me," What do you see, Amos?" And I said," A plumb line." Then the Lord said," Behold I am about to put a plumb line In the midst of My people Israel. I will spare them no longer.
Amos 7:9 "The high places of Isaac will be desolated And the sanctuaries of Israel laid waste. Then I will rise up against the house of Jeroboam with the sword."
Amos 7:10 Then Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, sent word to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying," Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel; the land is unable to endure all his words.
Amos 7:11 For thus Amos says, 'Jeroboam will die by the sword and Israel will certainly go from its land into exile. '"
Amos 7:12 Then Amaziah said to Amos," Go, you seer, flee away to the land of Judah and there eat bread and there do your prophesying!
Amos 7:13 But no longer prophesy at Bethel, for it is a sanctuary of the king and a royal residence."
Amos 7:14 Then Amos replied to Amaziah," I am not a prophet, nor am I the son of a prophet; for I am a herdsman and a grower of sycamore figs.
Amos 7:15 But the Lord took me from following the flock and the Lord said to me, 'Go prophesy to My people Israel. '
Amos 7:16 Now hear the word of the Lord: you are saying, 'You shall not prophesy against Israel nor shall you speak against the house of Isaac. '
Amos 7:17 Therefore, thus says the Lord, 'Your wife will become a harlot in the city, your sons and your daughters will fall by the sword, your land will be parceled up by a measuring line and you yourself will die upon unclean soil. Moreover, Israel will certainly go from its land into exile. '"

Amos 7:2 And it came to pass, that when they had made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said, O Lord GOD, forgive, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small. Amos 7:2 And it came about, when it had finished eating the vegetation of the land, that I said," Lord God, please pardon! How can Jacob stand, For he is small?" Amos 7:2 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν συντελέσῃ τοῦ καταφαγεῖν τὸν χόρτον τῆς γῆς καὶ εἶπα κύριε κύριε ἵλεως γενοῦ τίς ἀναστήσει τὸν Ιακωβ ὅτι ὀλιγοστός ἐστιν

Amos 7:5 Then said I, O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small. Amos 7:5 Then I said," Lord God, please stop! How can Jacob stand, for he is small?" Amos 7:5 καὶ εἶπα κύριε κύριε κόπασον δή τίς ἀναστήσει τὸν Ιακωβ ὅτι ὀλιγοστός ἐστιν
Amos 7:6 The LORD repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord GOD. Amos 7:6 The Lord changed His mind about this." This too shall not be," said the Lord God. Amos 7:6 μετανόησον κύριε ἐπὶ τούτῳ καὶ τοῦτο οὐ μὴ γένηται λέγει κύριος
Amos 7:7 Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the LORD stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.

Then said the LORD, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more Amos 7:8 The Lord said to me," What do you see, Amos?" And I said," A plumb line." Then the Lord said," Behold I am about to put a plumb line In the midst of My people Israel. I will spare them no longer. Amos 7:8 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με τί σὺ ὁρᾷς Αμως καὶ εἶπα ἀδάμαντα καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐντάσσω ἀδάμαντα ἐν μέσῳ λαοῦ μου Ισραηλ οὐκέτι μὴ προσθῶ τοῦ παρελθεῖν αὐτόν
Amos 7:9 And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword. Amos 7:9 "The high places of Isaac will be desolated And the sanctuaries of Israel laid waste. Then I will rise up against the house of Jeroboam with the sword." Amos 7:9 καὶ ἀφανισθήσονται βωμοὶ τοῦ γέλωτος καὶ αἱ τελεταὶ τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐξερημωθήσονται καὶ ἀναστήσομαι ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Ιεροβοαμ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ

Amos 7:10 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν Αμασιας ὁ ἱερεὺς Βαιθηλ πρὸς Ιεροβοαμ βασιλέα Ισραηλ λέγων συστροφὰς ποιεῖται κατὰ σοῦ Αμως ἐν μέσῳ οἴκου Ισραηλ οὐ μὴ δύνηται ἡ γῆ ὑπενεγκεῖν ἅπαντας τοὺς λόγους αὐτοῦ
Amos 7:11 For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land. Amos 7:11 For thus Amos says, 'Jeroboam will die by the sword and Israel will certainly go from its land into exile. '" Amos 7:11 διότι τάδε λέγει Αμως ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ τελευτήσει Ιεροβοαμ ὁ δὲ Ισραηλ αἰχμάλωτος ἀχθήσεται ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ
Amos 7:12 Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there: Amos 7:12 Then Amaziah said to Amos," Go, you seer, flee away to the land of Judah and there eat bread and there do your prophesying! Amos 7:12 καὶ εἶπεν Αμασιας πρὸς Αμως ὁ ὁρῶν βάδιζε ἐκχώρησον εἰς γῆν Ιουδα καὶ ἐκεῖ καταβίου καὶ ἐκεῖ προφητεύσεις
Amos 7:13 But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king's chapel, and it is the king's court. Amos 7:13 But no longer prophesy at Bethel, for it is a sanctuary of the king and a royal residence."

Amos 7:16 Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD: Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac. Amos 7:16 Now hear the word of the Lord: you are saying, 'You shall not prophesy against Israel nor shall you speak against the house of Isaac. ' Amos 7:16 καὶ νῦν ἄκουε λόγον κυρίου σὺ λέγεις μὴ προφήτευε ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ οὐ μὴ ὀχλαγωγήσῃς ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Ιακωβ
Amos 7:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land. Amos 7:17 Therefore, thus says the Lord, 'Your wife will become a harlot in the city, your sons and your daughters will fall by the sword, your land will be parceled up by a measuring line and you yourself will die upon unclean soil. Moreover, Israel will certainly go from its land into exile. '" Amos 7:17 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἡ γυνή σου ἐν τῇ πόλει πορνεύσει καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες σου ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ πεσοῦνται καὶ ἡ γῆ σου ἐν σχοινίῳ καταμετρηθήσεται καὶ σὺ ἐν γῇ ἀκαθάρτῳ τελευτήσεις ὁ δὲ Ισραηλ αἰχμάλωτος ἀχθήσεται ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ
