1 اسمعوا هذا القول الذي انا انادي به عليكم مرثاة يا بيت اسرائيل.

2 سقطت عذراء اسرائيل لا تعود تقوم. انطرحت على ارضها ليس من يقيمها.

3 لانه هكذا قال السيد الرب. المدينة الخارجة بالف يبقى لها مئة والخارجة بمئة يبقى لها عشرة من بيت اسرائيل

4 لانه هكذا قال الرب لبيت اسرائيل اطلبوني فتحيوا.

5 ولا تطلبوا بيت ايل والى الجلجال لا تذهبوا والى بئر سبع لا تعبروا. لان الجلجال تسبى سبيا وبيت ايل تصير عدما.

6 اطلبوا الرب فتحيوا لئلا يقتحم بيت يوسف كنار تحرق ولا يكون من يطفئها من بيت ايل

7 يا ايها الذين يحوّلون الحق افسنتينا ويلقون البر الى الارض

8 الذي صنع الثريا والجبّار ويحوّل ظل الموت صبحا ويظلم النهار كالليل الذي يدعو مياه البحر ويصبها على وجه الارض يهوه اسمه.

9 الذي يفلح الخرب على القوي فيأتي الخرب على الحصن.

10 انهم في الباب يبغضون المنذر ويكرهون المتكلم بالصدق.

11 لذلك من اجل انكم تدوسون المسكين وتاخذون منه هدية قمح بنيتم بيوتا من حجارة منحوتة ولا تسكنون فيها وغرستم كروما شهية ولا تشربون خمرها.

12 لاني علمت ان ذنوبكم كثيرة وخطاياكم وافرة ايها المضايقون البار الآخذون الرشوة الصادّون البائسين في الباب.

13 لذلك يصمت العاقل في ذلك الزمان لانه زمان رديء

14 اطلبوا الخير لا الشر لكي تحيوا فعلى هذا يكون الرب اله الجنود معكم كما قلتم.

15 ابغضوا الشر واحبوا الخير وثبّتوا الحق في الباب لعل الرب اله الجنود يترأف على بقية يوسف

16 لذلك هكذا قال السيد الرب اله الجنود. في جميع الاسواق نحيب وفي جميع الازقة يقولون آه آه ويدعون الفلاح الى النوح وجميع عارفي الرثاء للندب.

17 وفي جميع الكروم ندب لاني اعبر في وسطك قال الرب

18 ويل للذين يشتهون يوم الرب. لماذا لكم يوم الرب. هو ظلام لا نور.

19 كما اذا هرب انسان من امام الاسد فصادفه الدب او دخل البيت ووضع يده على الحائط فلدغته الحيّة.

20 أليس يوم الرب ظلاما لا نورا وقتاما لا نور له

21 بغضت كرهت اعيادكم ولست التذّ باعتكافاتكم.

22 اني اذا قدمتم لي محرقاتكم وتقدماتكم لا ارتضي وذبائح السلامة من مسمّناتكم لا التفت اليها.

23 ابعد عني ضجّة اغانيك ونغمة ربابك لا اسمع.

24 وليجر الحق كالمياه والبرّ كنهر دائم

25 هل قدمتم لي ذبائح وتقدمات في البرية اربعين سنة يا بيت اسرائيل.

26 بل حملتم خيمة ملكومكم وتمثال اصنامكم نجم الهكم الذي صنعتم لنفوسكم.

27 فاسبيكم الى ما وراء دمشق قال الرب اله الجنود اسمه

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 5      

1-3 The Lord is sorrowful that the church, the Truth from the Divine flowing into the world, has successively been devastated, as is seen in the previous chapter, Amos 4. Verse 3 says, “The city that goes out by a thousand shall have a hundred left.” So very little truth is left to nourish the people, and this bad state is by their own doing.

4-9 Amid this dying out, the Lord entreats, almost anxiously, “Seek Me and live,” then names traps or states that will turn people from Him: Bethel, Gilgal, and Beersheba. The first is falsifying knowledges, the second sensuous or external pleasures; and the last “negative attitudes towards everything that constitutes faith and its doctrine (SH 3923:6). The next warning is to those “who turn justice into wormwood,” v. 7 or turn good into evil (SH 1488:2). He wants them to return to him and explains clearly that He is the source of power, the one who, “Made the Pleiades and Orion,” v. 8 and the one who “rains ruin upon the strong” v.9.

10-13 In their self-intelligence they continue to reject the Lord, to “tread down the poor,” rejecting even the little bits of truth coming to them. The people are warned, “Though you have built houses of hewn stone, yet you shall not dwell in them,” stone meaning truths of the natural (AE 745:3). The dictionary meaning of “hewn” means a workman making something, so it can be seen as coming from themselves, or their own intelligence. Anything like that is “devoid of life from the Divine” (SH 9852:2).

14-15 The path is shown for the way the Lord can be with them, “Seek good and not evil, that you may live.” It can’t be any plainer. In that way the Lord can reach out with His mercy, and “be gracious to the remnant of Joseph” v.15. The remnant is the small amount of truth, and Joseph is the spiritual part of us (SH 3921:3).

16-20 Here people are warned of how bad it will be for them when the day of the Lord comes. “Is not the day of the Lord darkness?” for those who are in evil, “with no brightness in it?” v.20. A person’s suffering will be painful, “as though he went into the house, leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him,” and terrorizing, “As though a man fled from a lion and a bear met him,” v. 19.

21-22 Their worship won’t be accepted, shown by, “I hate, I despise your feast days” v. 21. The strong language of the Lord is the mirror opposite of the depth of the evil the people are in, since only a remnant of the truth is with them, as in v. 3.

23-25 Take away your noisy songs and melodies, the Lord says, take away what sounds beautiful to you but is hurtful to the Divine because of the lack of goodness and truth. In its place he wants people to “Let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mightly stream” v. 24.

26-27 If people don’t return to the Lord, everything good will be taken from them, shown in “Therefore I will send you into captivity beyond Damascus” v. 27. Damascus was the furtherest boundary of Canaan, or beyond where spiritual things reside. The “boundary of Damascus” is also used in Ezekiel 47:16-18 (AE 1088).
