← Amos 6   Amos 8 →

1 Il Signore, l’Eterno, mi diede questa visione: ecco che egli formava delle locuste al primo spuntar delle guaime: era il guaime dopo la falciatura per il re.

2 E quand’esse ebbero finito di divorare l’erba della terra, io dissi: "Signore, Eterno, deh, perdona! Come potrebbe sussistere Giacobbe piccolo com’egli è?"

3 L’Eterno si pentì di questo: "Ciò non avverrà"; disse l’Eterno.

4 Il Signore, l’Eterno, mi diede questa visione: Ecco, il Signore, l’Eterno, proclamava di voler difender la sua causa mediante il fuoco; e il fuoco divorò il grande abisso, e stava per divorare l’eredità.

5 Allora io dissi: "Signore, Eterno, deh, cessa! Come potrebbe sussistere Giacobbe, piccolo com’egli è?"

6 L’Eterno si pentì di questo: "Neppur quello avverrà", disse il Signore, l’Eterno.

7 Egli mi diede questa visione: Ecco, il Signore stava sopra un muro tirato a piombo, e aveva in mano un piombino.

8 E l’Eterno mi disse: "Amos, che vedi?" Io risposi: "Un piombino". E il Signore disse: "Ecco, io pongo il piombino in mezzo al mio popolo d’Israele; io non gli userò più oltre tolleranza;

9 saranno devastati gli alti luoghi d’Isacco, i santuari d’Israele saranno distrutti, ed io mi leverò con la spada contro la casa di Geroboamo".

10 Allora Amatsia, sacerdote di Bethel, mandò a dire a Geroboamo, re d’Israele: "Amos congiura contro di te in mezzo alla casa d’Israele; il paese non può sopportare tutte le sue parole.

11 Amos, infatti, ha detto: Geroboamo morrà di spada e Israele sarà menato in cattività lungi dal suo paese".

12 E Amatsia disse ad Amos: "Veggente, vattene, fuggi nel paese di Giuda; mangia colà il tuo pane, e là profetizza;

13 ma a Bethel non profetar più, perché è un santuario del re e una residenza reale".

14 Allora Amos rispose e disse: "Io non sono profeta, né discepolo di profeta; ero un mandriano, e coltivavo i sicomori;

15 l’Eterno mi perse di dietro al gregge, e l’Eterno mi disse: Va’, profetizza al mio popolo d’Israele.

16 Or dunque ascolta la parola dell’Eterno: Tu dici: Non profetare contro Israele, e non predicare contro la casa d’Isacco!

17 Perciò così parla l’Eterno: La tua moglie si prostituirà nella città, i tuoi figliuoli e le tue figliuole cadranno per la spada, il tuo paese sarà spartito con la cordicella, e tu stesso morrai su terra impura e Israele sarà certamente menato in cattività, lungi dal suo paese".

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 7      

By Rev. Martin Pennington and Rev. George McCurdy

The organized church was increasing from externals to externals. The course of their actions could lead but to one thing: corruption and breaches that would end with the destruction of internal or inmost things. Their decisions were against God and doctrine. The church with all things belonging to it would “perish.”
