← Amos 1   Amos 3 →

1 Ovako veli Gospod: Za tri zla i za četiri što učini Moav, neću mu oprostiti, jer sažeže kosti cara edomskog u kreč.

2 Nego ću pustiti oganj na Moava, te će proždreti dvorove u Kariotu, i Moav će poginuti s vrevom, s vikom i s glasom trubnim.

3 I istrebiću sudiju iz njega i sve knezove njegove pobiću s njim, veli Gospod.

4 Ovako veli Gospod: Za tri zla i za četiri što učini Juda, neću mu oprostiti, jer prezreše zakon Gospodnji i uredbe Njegove ne držaše, i prevariše se lažima svojim, za kojima hodiše oci njihovi.

5 Nego ću pustiti oganj u Judu, te će proždreti dvore jerusalimske.

6 Ovako veli Gospod: Za tri zla i za četiri što učini Izrailj, neću mu oprostiti, jer prodavaše pravednika za novce i ubogog za jedne opanke.

7 Čeznu za prahom zemaljskim na glavi siromasima, i prevraćaju put smernima; i sin i otac odlaze k jednoj devojci da skvrne sveto ime moje.

8 I na haljinama u zalogu uzetim leže kod svakog oltara, i vino oglobljenih piju u kući bogova svojih.

9 A ja istrebih ispred njih Amoreje, koji behu visoki kao kedri i jaki kao hrastovi, i potrh rod njihov ozgo i žile njihove ozdo.

10 I ja vas izvedoh iz zemlje misirske, i vodih vas po pustinji četrdeset godina da biste nasledili zemlju amorejsku.

11 I podizah između sinova vaših proroke i između mladića vaših nazireje. Nije li tako? Sinovi Izrailjevi, govori Gospod.

12 A vi pojiste nazireje vinom, i prorocima zabranjivaste govoreći: Ne prorokujte.

13 Evo, ja ću vas pritisnuti na mestu vašem kao što se pritiskaju kola puna snoplja.

14 I neće biti bega brzome, i jaki neće utvrditi kreposti svoje, i hrabri neće spasti dušu svoje.

15 I strelac neće se održati, i laki na nogu neće se izbaviti, niti će konjanik spasti duše svoje.

16 Nego će najhrabriji među junacima go pobeći u onaj dan, govori Gospod.

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 2      

By Helen Kennedy

In this chapter, the Lord tells how people in Moab, Judah and Israel will be punished because they're continuing in their evils. Starting in verse 9, He shows that He has the strength to punish them, because He’s already overcome the Amorites, who symbolize evil in general (Secrets of Heaven 6306).
