← 阿摩司書 8   俄巴底亞書 1 →

1 見主站在祭壇旁邊;他:你要擊打柱頂,使門檻震動,打碎柱頂,落在眾人上;所剩下的人,我必用刀戮,無一人能逃避,無一人能逃脫。

2 他們雖然挖透陰間,我的必取出他們來;雖然爬上去,我必拿他們來;

3 雖然藏在迦密山頂,我必搜尋,捉出他們來;雖然從我眼前藏在底,我必命咬他們;

4 雖被仇敵擄去,我必命刀戮他們;我必向他們定住眼目,降禍不降福。

5 ─萬軍之耶和華摸地,地就消化,凡在地上的都必悲哀。地必全然像尼羅河漲起,如同埃及河落下。

6 那在建造樓閣、在地上安定穹蒼、命澆在地上的─耶和華是他的名。

7 耶和華以色列人哪,我豈不看你們如古實人嗎?我豈不是領以色列人埃及地,領非利士人出迦斐託,領亞蘭人出吉珥嗎?

8 耶和華的眼目察看這有的國,必將這國從地上滅絕,卻不將雅各家滅絕淨盡。這是耶和華的。

9 我必出令,將以色列家分散在列國中,好像用篩子篩穀,連一粒也不落在地上。

10 我民中的一切罪人:災禍必追不上我們,也迎不著我們。他們必在刀下。

11 到那日,我必建立大衛倒塌的帳幕,堵住其中的破口,把那破壞的建立起來,重新修造,像古時一樣,

12 使以色列人得以東所餘剩的和所有稱為我名下的國。此乃行這事的耶和華的。

13 耶和華:日子將到,耕種的必接續收割的;踹葡萄的必接續撒種的;大要滴下甜酒;小都必流奶(原文是消化,見約珥三章十八節)。

14 我必使我民以色列被擄的歸回;他們必重修荒廢的城邑居住,栽種葡萄園其中所出的酒,修造果木園,其中的果子。

15 我要將他們栽於本地,他們不再從我所賜他們的地上拔出來。這是耶和華─你的的。
