World English Bible

Amos 2
1 Thus says Yahweh:

"For three transgressions of Moab, yes, for four,
I will not turn away its punishment;
because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime;

2
but I will send a fire on Moab,
and it will devour the palaces of Kerioth;
and Moab will die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet;

3
and I will cut off the judge from their midst,
and will kill all its princes with him,"

says Yahweh.

4 Thus says Yahweh:
"For three transgressions of Judah, yes, for four,
I will not turn away its punishment;
because they have rejected Yahweh's law,
and have not kept his statutes,
and their lies have led them astray,
after which their fathers walked;

5
But I will send a fire on Judah,
and it will devour the palaces of Jerusalem."


6 Thus says Yahweh:
"For three transgressions of Israel, yes, for four,
I will not turn away its punishment;
because they have sold the righteous for silver,
and the needy for a pair of shoes;

7
They trample on the dust of the earth on the head of the poor,
and deny justice to the oppressed;
and a man and his father use the same maiden, to profane my holy name;

8
and they lay themselves down beside every altar on clothes taken in pledge;
and in the house of their God* they drink the wine of those who have been fined.

9
Yet I destroyed the Amorite before them,
whose height was like the height of the cedars,
and he was strong as the oaks;
yet I destroyed his fruit from above,
and his roots from beneath.

10
Also I brought you up out of the land of Egypt,
and led you forty years in the wilderness,
to possess the land of the Amorite.

11
I raised up some of your sons for prophets,
and some of your young men for Nazirites.
Isn't this true,
you* children of Israel?" says Yahweh.

12
"But you* gave the Nazirites wine to drink,
and commanded the prophets, saying, 'Don't prophesy!'

13
Behold, I will crush you in your place,
as a cart crushes that is full of grain.

14
Flight will perish from the swift;
and the strong won't strengthen his force;
neither shall the mighty deliver himself;

15
neither shall he stand who handles the bow;
and he who is swift of foot won't escape;
neither shall he who rides the horse deliver himself;

16
and he who is courageous among the mighty will flee away naked on that day,"

says Yahweh.
