1 Halljátok meg e beszédet Básánnak ünõi, a kik Samaria hegyén vagytok; a kik nyomorgatjátok a szegényeket, megrontjátok az ügyefogyottakat, a kik azt mondják az õ uroknak: Hozd elõ, hadd igyunk!

2 Megesküdt az Úr Isten az õ szentségére, hogy ímé napok következnek reátok, a mikor szigonyokkal visznek el titeket, és a ti maradékotokat halászó horgokkal.

3 És a réseken mentek ki, mindenikõtök egyenest; és a Hermónba vettettek, ezt mondja az Úr.

4 Menjetek Béth-Elbe és vétkezzetek, szaporítsátok a vétkeket Gilgálban. Vigyétek fel reggelente áldozataitokat, és harmad-naponként tizedeiteket.

5 Kovászosból gyújtsatok hálaáldozatot; ajánljatok önkéntes áldozatokat, híreszteljétek; mert így szeretitek, Izráel fiai, azt mondja az Úr Isten.

6 De én is bocsátottam rátok fogak tisztaságát minden városaitokban és kenyérszükséget minden helységeitekben, és még sem tértetek vissza hozzám, ezt mondja az Úr.

7 De én is megvontam tõletek az esõt, három hónappal az aratás elõtt, és esõt adtam egy városra, más városra pedig nem adtam esõt. Az egyik rész esõt kapott, az a rész pedig, a melyre nem esett esõ, megszáradott.

8 És két-három város tántorgott egy-egy városba, vizet inni, de meg nem elégíttettek; és még sem tértetek vissza hozzám, ezt mondja az Úr.

9 Megvertelek titeket szárazsággal és ragyával; kerteiteknek, szõlõiteknek, fügefáitoknak és olajfáitoknak nagy részét megette a sáska; és még sem tértetek vissza én hozzám, ezt mondja az Úr.

10 Döghalált bocsátottam rátok, mint Égyiptomra; fegyverrel öltem ifjaitokat, fogságra [vitettem] lovaitokat; és táborotok bûzét egész orrotokig emeltem, és még sem tértetek vissza hozzám, ezt mondja az Úr.

11 Felforgattam közületek [többeket,] a mint felforgatta Isten Sodomát és Gomorát, és olyanokká lettetek, mint a tûzbõl kikapott üszök; és még sem tértetek vissza hozzám, ezt mondja az Úr.

12 Azért hát ekképen cselekeszem veled Izráel! Minthogy pedig ekképen cselekeszem veled, készülj Istened elé, oh Izráel!

13 Mert ímé, a ki hegyeket alkotott és a szelet teremtette, és a ki megjelenti az embernek az õ gondolatját, a ki a hajnalt sötétséggé változtatja és a föld magaslatain lépdel: az Úr õ, a Seregeknek Istene az õ neve.



Exploring the Meaning of Ámos 4      

Napsal(a) Helen Kennedy

In chapter 4 of the Book of Amos, verses 1-3 are talking about people who pervert the truths of the church. They will fall into falsities in outermost things.

In the Bible, fish represent "lower" things than mammals, so we can interpret the fishhooks in verse 2 as meaning being caught and held fast in natural or lower things.

Verses 4-6 are about acts of worship such as tithes and sacrifices. These look similar to genuine worship, but are only external sorts of things. We can tell because ‘teeth’ (in verse 6) represent ultimates or outermost things (see Secrets of Heaven 6380). It follows that “cleanness of teeth” would mean outermost things that look good but only imitate genuine worship. The Lord exhorts, “Yet you have not returned to me.”

Verses 7-8. Some things true will remain, when where there are too many false ideas, the truths don't get through. This can be seen where the Lord says, “I made it rain on one city; I withheld rain from another city... where it did not rain the part withered.” Again the Lord exhorts, “Yet you have not returned to me.”

Verse 9. Afterward all things of the church are falsified, shown by blight attacking the gardens, vineyards, fig tree and olive trees. The last three represent spiritual, natural and celestial things, or all the things of spiritual life. “Yet you have not returned to me,” says the Lord.

Verses 10-11. The Lord explains the devastating things he allowed to happen: plague in Egypt, death of young men by swords, stench in the camps, Sodom and Gomorrah. This is because they are profaned by sensual knowledges. Profanation means the mixing of good and evil together. (See Secrets of Heaven 1001[2]).

This extends to all things of the church, with the church being the Lord’s kingdom on earth (Secrets of Heaven 768[3]).

With profanation “as soon as any idea of what is holy arises, the idea of what is profane joins immediately to it,” (Secrets of Heaven 301).

Now there is hardly anything left. “Yet you have not returned to Me,” says the Lord again.

Verses 12-13: Because people adamantly remain in their profane ways, they are warned, “Prepare to meet your God!”. This is the God powerful and mighty, “who forms mountains, and creates the wind,” and even more close to home, “Who declares to man what his thought is.” As intimately a knowing as that is, the Lord’s love for all humanity is contained in His exhortations for them to turn themselves to Him.

See, for example, Luke 6:44-45, and True Christian Religion 373.
