1 更重的刑罰以色列人哪!要耶和華攻擊你們的這些,就是攻擊他從埃及地領上來的以色列全家,

2 “地上萬族中,我只揀選了你;因此,我必追討你們的一切罪。”

3 人如果沒有約定,怎會同行呢?

4 先知的使命獅子如果不是捕獲獵物,怎會在林中吼叫?少壯獅子如果沒有捕獲甚麼,怎會在洞中咆哮呢?

5 如果沒有餌,雀怎會掉在地上的網羅中?網羅如果沒有捕獲,怎會從地上翻起呢?

6 城中如果吹起號角,居民怎會不驚慌呢?災禍如果臨到某城,不是耶和華所降的嗎?

7 如果耶和華不先把計劃向他的僕人先知顯示,他就不會作任何事。

8 獅子吼叫,誰不害怕耶和華宣告,誰敢不代他傳話?

9 犯罪的結果要向亞實突和埃及的堡壘宣告:“你們要在撒瑪利亞聚集;觀城裡極大的騷亂和城中的暴虐。”

10 “這些人不知道怎樣行正直的事,只管在他們的堡壘中積聚暴行和欺壓。”這是耶和華的宣告。

11 因此,耶和華這樣:“敵人必圍攻這地,使你們的勢力傾覆,搶掠你們的堡壘。”

12 耶和華這樣:“牧人從獅子中,只能奪回一雙羊和一角耳朵;撒瑪利亞以色列人獲救也是這樣,他們只剩下一角床榻,半邊褥子(“他們只剩下一角床塌,半邊褥子”,這句原文意義不詳,或譯:“他們躺臥在華麗的床上,睡在鋪上繡花毯子的榻上”)。

13 你們要,要向雅各作證。(這是耶和華萬軍之的宣告。)

14 我追討以色列的悖逆時,必要懲罰伯特利祭壇角必砍下,跌落在地。

15 我必毀壞冬天和夏天的別墅,用象牙裝飾的房子必破爛,宏偉的樓宇必歸於無有。”這是耶和華的宣告。

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 3      

By Rev. Martin Pennington and Rev. George McCurdy

A church cannot serve two masters. It cannot peacefully coexist with truths and falsities. To want to live with both and to seek a compromise will cause the church to be laid to waste. The church will perish, and the goods and truths of the Word will be taken away from it.
