1 Wee die gerustes in Sion en die sorgelose op die berg van Samaría, die vernames van die eerste onder die nasies, na wie die huis van Israel kom!

2 Trek deur na Kalne en kyk, gaan van daar na Hamat, die groot stad, en trek af na Gat van die Filistyne! Is hulle beter as hierdie koninkryke? Of is hulle grondgebied groter as julle grondgebied? --

3 julle wat die dag van onheil veraf stel en die setel van geweld nader skuiwe!

4 Wat op bedde van ivoor lê en uitgestrek lê op hulle rusbanke en die lammers van die kleinvee en die kalwers uit die stal eet!

5 Wat liedjies sing met begeleiding van die harp, wat net soos Dawid vir hulle musiekinstrumente uitdink!

6 Wat uit offerkomme wyn drink en hulle met die beste soorte olie salf, maar hulle nie oor die verbreking van Josef bekommer nie.

7 Daarom sal hulle nou op die voorpunt van die ballinge in ballingskap gaan, en daar sal 'n end kom aan die rumoerige gejubel van die leeglêers.

8 Die Here HERE het by Homself gesweer, spreek die HERE, die God van die leërskare: Ek het 'n afsku van die trotsheid van Jakob en haat sy paleise; daarom lewer Ek die stad oor en al wat daarin is.

9 En as daar tien man in een huis oorgebly het, sal hulle sterwe.

10 En wanneer iemand se bloedverwant, die een wat hom wil verbrand, hom optel om die bene uit die huis te verwyder, en aan iemand wat in die agterste vertrekke is, : Is daar nog iemand by jou? en hy antwoord: Nee--dan sal die eerste : Bly stil, want dit is nie gepas om die Naam van die HERE te vermeld nie!

11 Want kyk, die HERE gee bevel, en hulle slaan die groot huis tot 'n puinhoop en die klein huis tot splinters.

12 Kan perde draf op rotse, of kan 'n mens met osse daarop ploeë? --dat julle die reg in gif verander en die vrug van geregtigheid in wilde-als.

13 Julle wat bly is oor 'n nietige ding, wat : Het ons nie deur ons eie krag horings gekry nie?

14 Want kyk, Ek gaan teen julle, o huis van Israel, 'n volk opwek, spreek die HERE, die God van die leërskare, en hulle sal julle verdruk van die ingang na Hamat af tot by die spruit van die Vlakte.

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 6      

By Helen Kennedy

Woe is called upon people who seem to live a life of ease and fill it with pleasures. For example, those who “Eat lambs from the flock.” (Amos 6:4) Following Swedenborg’s correspondences it could mean “Those who attribute innocence (the lamb) to themselves,” or think they are blameless when they have actually sinned. Also, “Do horses run on rocks?”(Amos 6:12) is a great image for when our understanding is filled with only literal or external truths but doesn’t delve into deeper ones that show the Lord’s leading more clearly.
