1 Höret dieses Wort, das ich über euch erhebe, ein Klagelied, Haus Israel!

2 Sie ist gefallen, die Jungfrau Israel, sie wird nicht wieder aufstehen; sie liegt hingeworfen auf ihrem Lande, niemand richtet sie auf.

3 Denn so spricht der Herr, Jehova: Die Stadt, die zu tausend auszieht, wird hundert übrigbehalten, und die zu hundert auszieht, wird zehn übrigbehalten für das Haus Israel.

4 Denn so spricht Jehova zum Hause Israel: Suchet mich und lebet.

5 Und suchet nicht Bethel auf, und gehet nicht nach Gilgal, und gehet nicht hinüber nach Beerseba; denn Gilgal wird gewißlich weggeführt und Bethel zunichte werden.

6 Suchet Jehova und lebet, damit er nicht in das Haus Josephs eindringe wie ein Feuer und es verzehre, und für Bethel niemand da sei, der es lösche,

7 sie verwandeln das Recht in Wermut und werfen die Gerechtigkeit zu Boden; -

8 suchet den, der das Siebengestirn und den Orion gemacht hat, und den Todesschatten in Morgen verwandelt und den Tag zur Nacht verfinstert, der den Wassern des Meeres ruft und sie ausgießt über die Fläche der Erde: Jehova ist sein Name;

9 der Verwüstung losbrechen läßt über den Starken, und Verwüstung kommt über die Feste.

10 Sie hassen den, der im Tore Recht spricht, und verabscheuen den, der Unsträflichkeit redet.

11 Darum, weil ihr den Armen niedertretet und Getreidegaben von ihm nehmet, habt ihr Häuser von behauenen Steinen gebaut und werdet nicht darin wohnen, liebliche Weinberge gepflanzt und werdet deren Wein nicht trinken.

12 Denn ich weiß, daß eurer Übertretungen viele, und daß eure Sünden zahlreich sind; sie bedrängen den Gerechten, nehmen Lösegeld und beugen das Recht der Dürftigen im Tore.

13 Darum schweigt der Einsichtige in dieser Zeit, denn es ist eine böse Zeit.

14 Trachtet nach dem Guten und nicht nach dem Bösen, auf daß ihr lebet; und Jehova, der Gott der Heerscharen, wird also mit euch sein, wie ihr saget.

15 Hasset das Böse und liebet das Gute, und richtet das Recht auf im Tore; vielleicht wird Jehova, der Gott der Heerscharen, dem Überrest Josephs gnädig sein.

16 Darum spricht Jehova, der Gott der Heerscharen, der Herr, also: Auf allen Plätzen Wehklage! Und auf allen Gassen wird man sagen: Wehe, wehe! Und man wird den Ackersmann zur Trauer rufen, und die des Klageliedes Kundigen zur Wehklage;

17 und in allen Weinbergen wird Wehklage sein. Denn ich werde durch deine Mitte ziehen, spricht Jehova.

18 Wehe denen, welche den Tag Jehovas herbeiwünschen! Wozu soll euch der Tag Jehovas sein? Er wird Finsternis sein und nicht Licht:

19 wie wenn jemand vor dem Löwen flieht, und es begegnet ihm ein Bär; und er kommt nach Hause und stützt seine Hand an die Mauer, und es beißt ihn eine Schlange.

20 Wird denn nicht der Tag Jehovas Finsternis sein und nicht Licht, und Dunkelheit und nicht Glanz?

21 Ich hasse, ich verschmähe eure Feste, und eure Festversammlungen mag ich nicht riechen:

22 denn wenn ihr mir Brandopfer und eure Speisopfer opfert, habe ich kein Wohlgefallen daran; und das Friedensopfer von eurem Mastvieh mag ich nicht ansehen.

23 Tue den Lärm deiner Lieder von mir hinweg, und das Spiel deiner Harfen mag ich nicht hören.

24 Aber das Recht wälze sich einher wie Wasser, und die Gerechtigkeit wie ein immerfließender Bach!

25 Habt ihr mir vierzig Jahre in der Wüste Schlachtopfer und Speisopfer dargebracht, Haus Israel?

26 Ja, ihr habt die Hütte eures Königs und das Gestell eurer Götzenbilder getragen, das Sternbild eures Gottes, die ihr euch gemacht hattet.

27 So werde ich euch jenseit Damaskus wegführen, spricht Jehova, Gott der Heerscharen ist sein Name.

  

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 5      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In this fifth chapter of the Book of Amos, the first three verses (Amos 5:1-3) state the Lord's sorrow that the church - the truth from the Divine flowing into the world - has successively been devastated. (That was seen in Amos 4). When, in verse 3, it says, “The city that goes out by a thousand shall have a hundred left,” it means that very little truth is left to nourish the people. This bad state is their own doing.

In Amos 5:4-9, amid this dying out, the Lord entreats, almost anxiously, “Seek Me and live,” and then names traps, or spiritual states, that will turn people away from Him: Bethel, Gilgal, and Beersheba.

- The first, Bethel, here stands for falsifying knowledges.
- The second, Gilgal, signifies sensuous or external pleasures.
- The third, Beersheba, symbolized the last negative attitudes towards everything that constitutes faith and its doctrine. (See Arcana Coelestia 3923).

The next warning is to those “who turn justice into wormwood,” in Amos 5:7, i.e. they turn good into evil. (Arcana Coelestia 1488)

The Lord wants the people to return to Him, and explains clearly that He is the source of power, the one who, “made the Pleiades and Orion,” and the one who “rains ruin upon the strong”.

In Amos 5:10-13, in their love of their own intelligence, people 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 in our natural minds. (Apocalypse Explained 745). The dictionary meaning of “hewn” means a workman making something, so it can be seen as coming from ourselves, or our own intelligence. Anything like that is “devoid of life from the Divine” (Arcana Coelestia 9852).

In Amos 5:14-15, the path is shown for the way the Lord can be with us: “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”. That remnant is a small amount of truth, and Joseph is the spiritual part of us. (Arcana Coelestia 3921).

In Amos 5:16-20, 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?” 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.”

In Amos 5:21-22, God warns that people's fear-spurred worship won’t be accepted. He says, “I hate, I despise your feast days”. The strong language of the Lord is the mirror opposite of the depth of the evil the people are in.

In verses 23-25, "Take away your noisy songs and melodies," the Lord says, i.e. take away what sounds beautiful to you but is hurtful to the Divine because it lacks internal goodness and truth. In its place, in one of the Bible's memorable images, Jehovah says, "Let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mightly stream”.

Then, at the end, in verses 26-27, the warning is clear: if the people don’t return to the Lord, everything good will be taken from them, as shown in verse 27:

“Therefore I will send you into captivity beyond Damascus”.

Damascus was the furthest boundary of Canaan, or beyond where spiritual things reside. The “boundary of Damascus” is also referred to in Ezekiel 47:16-18. See also Apocalypse Explained 1088.
