← Amós 8   Obadias 1 →

1 Vi o Senhor, que estava junto ao altar; e me disse: Fere os capitéis, para que estremeçam os umbrais; e faze tudo em pedaços sobre a cabeça de todos eles; e eu matarei à espada até o último deles; nenhum deles conseguirá fugir, nenhum deles escapará.

2 Ainda que cavem até o Seol, dali os tirará a minha mão; ainda que subam ao céu, dali os farei descer.

3 Ainda que se escondam no cume do Carmelo, buscá-los-ei, e dali os tirarei; e, ainda que se ocultem aos meus olhos no fundo do mar, ali darei ordem à serpente, e ela os morderá.

4 Também ainda que vão para o cativeiro diante de seus inimigos, ali darei ordem à espada, e ela os matará; enfim eu porei os meus olhos sobre eles para o mal, e não pera o bem.

5 Pois o Senhor, o Deus dos exércitos, é o que toca a terra, e ela se derrete, e pranteiam todos os que nela habitam; e ela toda se levanta como o Nilo, e diminui como o Nilo do Egito.

6 Ele é o que edifica as suas câmaras no céu, e funda sobre a terra a sua abóbada; que chama as águas do mar, e as derrama sobre a terra; o Senhor é o seu nome.

7 Não sois vós para comigo, ó filhos de Israel, como os filhos dos etíopes? diz o Senhor; não fiz eu subir a Israel da terra do Egito, e aos filisteus de Caftor, e aos sírios de Quir?

8 Eis que os olhos do Senhor Deus estão contra este reino pecador, e eu o destruirei de sobre a face da terra; contudo não destruirei de todo a casa de Jacó, diz o Senhor.

9 Pois eis que darei ordens, e sacudirei a casa de Israel em todas as nações, assim como se sacode grão no crivo; todavia não cairá sobre a terra um só grão.

10 Morrerão à espada todos os pecadores do meu povo, os quais dizem: O mal não nos alcançará, nem nos encontrará.

11 Naquele dia tornarei a levantar o tabernáculo de Davi, que está caído, e repararei as suas brechas, e tornarei a levantar as suas ruínas, e as reedificarei como nos dias antigos;

12 para que eles possuam o resto de Edom, e todas as nações que são chamadas pelo meu nome, diz o Senhor, que faz estas coisas.

13 Eis que vêm os dias, diz o Senhor, em que o que lavra alcançará ao que sega, e o que pisa as uvas ao que lança a semente; :e os montes destilarão mosto, e todos os outeiros se derreterão.

14 Também trarei do cativeiro o meu povo Israel; e eles reedificarão as cidades assoladas, e nelas habitarão; plantarão vinhas, e beberão o seu vinho; e farão pomares, e lhes comerão o fruto.

15 Assim os plantarei na sua terra, e não serão mais arrancados da sua terra que lhes dei, diz o senhor teu Deus.
