← Amos 1   Amos 3 →

1 Alzo zegt de HEERE: Om drie overtredingen van Moab, en om vier zal Ik dat niet afwenden; omdat hij de beenderen des konings van Edom tot kalk verbrand heeft.

2 Daarom zal Ik een vuur in Moab zenden, dat zal de paleizen van Kerioth verteren; en Moab zal sterven met groot gedruis, met gejuich, met geluid der bazuin.

3 En Ik zal den rechter uit het midden van haar uitroeien; en al haar vorsten zal Ik met hem doden, zegt de HEERE.

4 Alzo zegt de HEERE: Om drie overtredingen van Juda, en om vier zal Ik dat niet afwenden; omdat zij de wet des HEEREN verworpen, en Zijn inzettingen niet bewaard hebben; en hun leugenen hen verleid hebben, die hun vaders hebben nagewandeld.

5 Daarom zal Ik een vuur in Juda zenden, dat zal Jeruzalems paleizen verteren.

6 Alzo zegt de HEERE: Om drie overtredingen van Israel, en om vier zal Ik dat niet afwenden; omdat zij den rechtvaardige voor geld verkopen, en den nooddruftige om een paar schoenen.

7 Die er naar hijgen, dat het stof der aarde op het hoofd der armen zij, en den weg der zachtmoedigen verkeren; en de man en zijn vader gaan tot een jonge dochter om Mijn heiligen Naam te ontheiligen.

8 En zij leggen zich neder bij elk altaar op de verpande klederen, en drinken den wijn der geboeten in het huis van hun goden.

9 Ik daarentegen heb den Amoriet voor hunlieder aangezicht verdelgd, wiens hoogte was als de hoogte der cederen, en hij was sterk als de eiken; maar Ik heb zijn vrucht van boven, en zijn wortelen van onderen verdelgd.

10 Ook heb Ik ulieden uit Egypteland opgevoerd; en Ik heb u veertig jaren in de woestijn geleid, opdat gij het land van den Amoriet erfelijk bezat.

11 En Ik heb sommigen uit uw zonen tot profeten verwekt, en uit uw jongelingen tot Nazireen; is dit niet alzo, gij kinderen Israels? spreekt de HEERE.

12 Maar gijlieden hebt aan de Nazireen wijn te drinken gegeven, en gij hebt den profeten geboden zeggende: Gij zult niet profeteren.

13 Ziet, Ik zal uw plaatsen drukken, gelijk als een wagen drukt, die vol garven is.

14 Zodat de snelle niet zal ontvlieden, en de sterke zijn kracht niet verkloeken, en een held zal zijn ziel niet bevrijden.

15 En die den boog handelt, zal niet bestaan, en die licht is op zijn voeten, zal zich niet bevrijden; ook zal, die te paard rijdt, zijn ziel niet bevrijden.

16 En de kloekhartigste onder de helden zal te dien dage naakt heenvlieden, spreekt de HEERE.

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).
