1 Izraelio namai, išgirskite žodį, raudą, kuria į jus kreipiuosi:

2 “Parblokštas nebeatsikelia išrinktasis Izraelis, guli apleistas ant žemės, niekas jo nepakelia”.

3 Taip sako Viešpats Dievas Izraelio namams: “Mieste, kuris išeidavo su tūkstančiu, išliks šimtas, ir kuris išeidavo su šimtu, išliks dešimt”.

4 Taip sako Viešpats Izraelio namams: “Ieškokite manęs, tai gyvensite.

5 Neieškokite Betelio, neikite į Gilgalą, nekeliaukite į Beer Šebą! Gilgala tikrai pateks į nelaisvę ir Betelis pavirs nieku”.

6 Ieškokite Viešpaties, tai gyvensite, kad Jis neužsidegtų kaip ugnis Juozapo namuose ir neprarytų jų. Nebūtų Betelyje kam ją užgesinti.

7 Jūs, kurie teisingumą pakeičiate kartybe ir teisumą sutrypiate kojomis.

8 Ieškokite To, kuris padarė Sietyno bei Oriono žvaigždynus, kuris naktį paverčia rytu ir dieną­tamsia naktimi, kuris pašaukia jūros vandenį ir jį išlieja ant žemės lietumi. Viešpats yra Jo vardas.

9 Jis leidžia sunaikinti stiprųjį ir sugriauti jo tvirtovę.

10 Jie nekenčia to, kuris apkaltina vartuose ir nemėgsta to, kuris kalba tiesą.

11 Jūs mindote silpnąjį ir imate iš jo mokesčius kviečiais. Jūs pasistatėte namus iš tašytų akmenų, tačiau negyvensite juose; užsiveisėte puikių vynuogynų, tačiau negersite jų vyno.

12 Aš žinau, kiek daug yra jūsų nusikaltimų bei nuodėmių. Jūs persekiojate nekaltąjį, imate kyšius, iškraipote vargšo bylą vartuose.

13 Išmintingasis tyli tuo metu, nes tai blogas metas.

14 Ieškokite gera, o ne pikta, kad išliktumėte gyvi. Tada Viešpats, kareivijų Dievas, bus su jumis, kaip jūs sakote.

15 Nekęskite pikta ir mylėkite gera. Įtvirtinkite teisingumą vartuose. Gal tada Viešpats, kareivijų Dievas, bus maloningas Juozapo likučiui?

16 Taip sako Viešpats, kareivijų Dievas: “Visose aikštėse ir gatvėse dejuos ir sakys: ‘Vargas, vargas!’ Žemdirbius šauks gedėti, o patyrusias raudotojas­dejuoti.

17 Kai praeisiu tarp jūsų, visuose vynuogynuose bus girdima rauda,­sako Viešpats”.

18 Vargas tiems, kurie laukia Viešpaties dienos! Kam ji jums? Viešpaties dieną bus tamsa, o ne šviesa.

19 Kaip žmogus, kuris, bėgdamas nuo liūto, sutiktų lokį arba, įėjęs į namus ir ranka atsirėmęs į sieną, būtų įgeltas gyvatės.

20 Tamsi bus Viešpaties diena­ne šviesi. Labai tamsi, be jokios šviesos.

21 “Aš nekenčiu ir paniekinu jūsų šventes, nemėgstu jūsų iškilmių kvapo.

22 Nors jūs aukojate deginamąsias ir duonos aukas, Aš jų nepriimsiu. Aš nepažvelgsiu į jūsų riebias padėkos aukas.

23 Šalin nuo manęs su savo giesmių triukšmu, nenoriu klausyti jūsų arfų skambinimo.

24 Teisingumas tegu teka kaip vandenys, o teisumas­kaip galinga srovė!

25 Izraelio namai, ar jūs aukojote atnašas ir aukas dykumoje per keturiasdešimt metų?

26 Jūs nešiojote Sikuto, savo karaliaus, ir Kijūno, žvaigždžių dievo, atvaizdus.

27 Todėl ištremsiu jus anapus Damasko”,­sako Viešpats, kurio vardas­kareivijų Dievas.

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 5      

1-3 The Lord is sorrowful that the church, the Truth from the Divine flowing into the world, has successively been devastated, as is seen in the previous chapter, Amos 4. Verse 3 says, “The city that goes out by a thousand shall have a hundred left.” So very little truth is left to nourish the people, and this bad state is by their own doing.

4-9 Amid this dying out, the Lord entreats, almost anxiously, “Seek Me and live,” then names traps or states that will turn people from Him: Bethel, Gilgal, and Beersheba. The first is falsifying knowledges, the second sensuous or external pleasures; and the last “negative attitudes towards everything that constitutes faith and its doctrine (SH 3923:6). The next warning is to those “who turn justice into wormwood,” v. 7 or turn good into evil (SH 1488:2). He wants them to return to him and explains clearly that He is the source of power, the one who, “Made the Pleiades and Orion,” v. 8 and the one who “rains ruin upon the strong” v.9.

10-13 In their self-intelligence they 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 of the natural (AE 745:3). The dictionary meaning of “hewn” means a workman making something, so it can be seen as coming from themselves, or their own intelligence. Anything like that is “devoid of life from the Divine” (SH 9852:2).

14-15 The path is shown for the way the Lord can be with them, “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” v.15. The remnant is the small amount of truth, and Joseph is the spiritual part of us (SH 3921:3).

16-20 Here 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?” v.20. 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,” v. 19.

21-22 Their worship won’t be accepted, shown by, “I hate, I despise your feast days” v. 21. The strong language of the Lord is the mirror opposite of the depth of the evil the people are in, since only a remnant of the truth is with them, as in v. 3.

23-25 Take away your noisy songs and melodies, the Lord says, take away what sounds beautiful to you but is hurtful to the Divine because of the lack of goodness and truth. In its place he wants people to “Let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mightly stream” v. 24.

26-27 If people don’t return to the Lord, everything good will be taken from them, shown in “Therefore I will send you into captivity beyond Damascus” v. 27. Damascus was the furtherest boundary of Canaan, or beyond where spiritual things reside. The “boundary of Damascus” is also used in Ezekiel 47:16-18 (AE 1088).
