1 Höret, was der HERR mit euch redet, ihr Kinder Israel, mit allen Geschlechtern, die ich aus Ägyptenland geführt habe:

2 Aus allen Geschlechtern auf Erden habe ich allein euch erkannt; darum will ich auch euch heimsuchen in all eurer Missetat.

3 Mögen auch zwei miteinander wandeln, sie seien denn eins untereinander?

4 Brüllt auch ein Löwe im Walde, wenn er keinen Raub hat? Schreit auch ein junger Löwe aus seiner Höhle, er habe denn etwas gefangen?

5 Fällt auch ein Vogel in den Strick auf der Erde, da kein Vogler ist? Hebt man auch den Strick auf von der Erde, der noch nichts gefangen hat?

6 Bläst man auch die Posaune in einer Stadt, daß sich das Volk davor nicht entsetze? Ist auch ein Unglück in der Stadt, daß der HERR nicht tue?

7 Denn der HERR HERR tut nichts, er offenbare denn sein Geheimnis den Propheten, seinen Knechten.

8 Der Löwe brüllt; wer sollte sich nicht fürchten? Der HERR HERR redet; wer sollte nicht weissagen?

9 Verkündigt in den Palästen zu Asdod und in den Palästen im Lande Ägypten und sprecht: Sammelt euch auf die Berge Samarias und sehet, welch ein großes Zetergeschrei und Unrecht darin ist!

10 Sie achten keines Rechts, spricht der HERR, sammeln Schätze von Frevel und Raub in ihren Palästen.

11 Darum spricht der HERR HERR also: man wird dies Land ringsumher bedrängen und dich von deiner Macht herunterreißen und deine Häuser plündern.

12 So spricht der HERR: Gleichwie ein Hirte dem Löwen zwei Kniee oder ein Ohrläpplein aus dem Maul reißt, also sollen die Kinder Israel herausgerissen werden, die zu Samaria sitzen in der Ecke des Ruhebettes und auf dem Lager von Damast.

13 Höret und zeuget im Hause Jakob, spricht der HERR HERR, der Gott Zebaoth.

14 Denn zu der Zeit, wann ich die Sünden Israels heimsuchen werde, will ich die Altäre zu Beth-El heimsuchen und die Hörner des Altars abbrechen, daß sie zu Boden fallen sollen,

15 und will beide, Winterhaus und Sommerhaus, schlagen, und die elfenbeinernen Häuser sollen untergehen und viele Häuser verderbt werden, spricht der HERR.

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.
