Thus has the Lord Jehovih* showed me; and behold, He formed locusts◦ at the start of the going··up of the later··growth; and, behold, it was the later··growth after the mowings of the king.
And it was, when▫ they completed eating the herb of the land, that I said, O Lord Jehovih, pardon, I pray◦ Thee; by whom shall Jacob arise? for he◦ is small.
Jehovah repented for▵ this; It shall not be, says Jehovah.
Thus has the Lord Jehovih shown me; and, behold, the Lord Jehovih called to strive by fire, and it devoured the great◦ abyss, and did eat··up a part.
And I said, O Lord Jehovih, stop, I pray◦ Thee; by whom shall Jacob arise? for he◦ is small.
Jehovah repented for▵ this; It◦ also shall not be, says the Lord Jehovih.
Thus He showed me; and, behold, the Lord stood··up on a wall made by a plumbline, and a plumbline was in His hand.
And Jehovah said to▵ me, Amos, what seest thou◦? And I said, A plumbline. And the Lord said, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst··of My people Israel; I will not again pass··by them any··more;
and the high··places of Isaac◦ shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be made··a··waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.
And Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to▵ Jeroboam the king of Israel, saying, Amos has conspired against thee in the midst··of the house of Israel; the land is· not ·able to sustain all his words.
For thus says Amos: Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel being exiled shall be exiled from on their own ground.
And Amaziah said to▵ Amos, O thou visionary, go, run··away to▵ the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and there prophesy:
but prophesy not again any··more at Bethel; for it◦ is the sanctuary of the king, and it◦ is the house of the kingdom.
And Amos answered, and said to▵ Amaziah, I▵ was not a prophet, neither was I▵ the son of a prophet; but◦ I▵ was a herdsman, and a gatherer▵ of the fruit of mulberry··fig··trees;
and Jehovah took me from behind the flock, and Jehovah said to▵ me, Go, prophesy to▵ My people Israel.
And now hear the word of Jehovah: Thou◦* sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, nor drop··down thy word against the house of Isaac◦.
Therefore thus says Jehovah: Thy wife shall be a harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy ground shall be parted by a cord; and thou◦ shalt··die on unclean ground; and Israel being exiled shall be exiled from upon his ground.
