1 Væ qui opulenti estis in Sion, et confiditis in monte Samariæ : optimates capita populorum, ingredientes pompatice domum Israël !

2 Transite in Chalane, et videte, et ite inde in Emath magnam, et descendite in Geth Palæstinorum, et ad optima quæque regna horum : si latior terminus eorum termino vestro est.

3 Qui separati estis in diem malum, et appropinquatis solio iniquitatis ;

4 qui dormitis in lectis eburneis, et lascivitis in stratis vestris ; qui comeditis agnum de grege, et vitulos de medio armenti ;

5 qui canitis ad vocem psalterii, sicut David putaverunt se habere vasa cantici,

6 bibentes vinum in phialis, et optimo unguento delibuti, et nihil patiebantur super contritione Joseph.

7 Quapropter nunc migrabunt in capite transmigrantium, et auferetur factio lascivientium.

8 Juravit Dominus Deus in anima sua, dicit Dominus Deus exercituum : Detestor ego superbiam Jacob, et domos ejus odi, et tradam civitatem cum habitatoribus suis.

9 Quod si reliqui fuerint decem viri in domo una, et ipsi morientur.

10 Et tollet eum propinquus suus, et comburet eum, ut efferat ossa de domo ; et dicet ei, qui in penetralibus domus est : Numquid adhuc est penes te ?

11 Et respondebit : Finis est. Et dicet ei : Tace, et non recorderis nominis Domini.

12 Quia ecce Dominus mandabit, et percutiet domum majorem ruinis, et domum minorem scissionibus.

13 Numquid currere queunt in petris equi, aut arari potest in bubalis ? quoniam convertistis in amaritudinem judicium, et fructum justitiæ in absinthium.

14 Qui lætamini in nihilo ; qui dicitis : Numquid non in fortitudine nostra assumpsimus nobis cornua ?

15 Ecce enim suscitabo super vos, domus Israël, dicit Dominus Deus exercituum, gentem, et conteret vos ab introitu Emath usque ad torrentem deserti.

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 6      

By Helen Kennedy

Woe is called upon people who seem to live a life of ease and fill it with pleasures. For example, those who “Eat lambs from the flock.” (Amos 6:4) Following Swedenborg’s correspondences it could mean “Those who attribute innocence (the lamb) to themselves,” or think they are blameless when they have actually sinned. Also, “Do horses run on rocks?”(Amos 6:12) is a great image for when our understanding is filled with only literal or external truths but doesn’t delve into deeper ones that show the Lord’s leading more clearly.
