1 ακουσατε τον λογον τουτον δαμαλεις της βασανιτιδος αι εν τω ορει της σαμαρειας αι καταδυναστευουσαι πτωχους και καταπατουσαι πενητας αι λεγουσαι τοις κυριοις αυτων επιδοτε ημιν οπως πιωμεν

2 ομνυει κυριος κατα των αγιων αυτου διοτι ιδου ημεραι ερχονται εφ' υμας και λημψονται υμας εν οπλοις και τους μεθ' υμων εις λεβητας υποκαιομενους εμβαλουσιν εμπυροι λοιμοι

3 και εξενεχθησεσθε γυμναι κατεναντι αλληλων και απορριφησεσθε εις το ορος το ρεμμαν λεγει κυριος ο θεος

4 εισηλθατε εις βαιθηλ και ηνομησατε και εις γαλγαλα επληθυνατε του ασεβησαι και ηνεγκατε εις το πρωι θυσιας υμων εις την τριημεριαν τα επιδεκατα υμων

5 και ανεγνωσαν εξω νομον και επεκαλεσαντο ομολογιας απαγγειλατε οτι ταυτα ηγαπησαν οι υιοι ισραηλ λεγει κυριος ο θεος

6 και εγω δωσω υμιν γομφιασμον οδοντων εν πασαις ταις πολεσιν υμων και ενδειαν αρτων εν πασι τοις τοποις υμων και ουκ επεστρεψατε προς με λεγει κυριος

7 και εγω ανεσχον εξ υμων τον υετον προ τριων μηνων του τρυγητου και βρεξω επι πολιν μιαν επι δε πολιν μιαν ου βρεξω μερις μια βραχησεται και μερις εφ' ην ου βρεξω επ' αυτην ξηρανθησεται

8 και συναθροισθησονται δυο και τρεις πολεις εις πολιν μιαν του πιειν υδωρ και ου μη εμπλησθωσιν και ουκ επεστρεψατε προς με λεγει κυριος

9 επαταξα υμας εν πυρωσει και εν ικτερω επληθυνατε κηπους υμων αμπελωνας υμων και συκωνας υμων και ελαιωνας υμων κατεφαγεν η καμπη και ουδ' ως επεστρεψατε προς με λεγει κυριος

10 εξαπεστειλα εις υμας θανατον εν οδω αιγυπτου και απεκτεινα εν ρομφαια τους νεανισκους υμων μετα αιχμαλωσιας ιππων σου και ανηγαγον εν πυρι τας παρεμβολας υμων εν τη οργη μου και ουδ' ως επεστρεψατε προς με λεγει κυριος

11 κατεστρεψα υμας καθως κατεστρεψεν ο θεος σοδομα και γομορρα και εγενεσθε ως δαλος εξεσπασμενος εκ πυρος και ουδ' ως επεστρεψατε προς με λεγει κυριος

12 δια τουτο ουτως ποιησω σοι ισραηλ πλην οτι ουτως ποιησω σοι ετοιμαζου του επικαλεισθαι τον θεον σου ισραηλ

13 διοτι ιδου εγω στερεων βροντην και κτιζων πνευμα και απαγγελλων εις ανθρωπους τον χριστον αυτου ποιων ορθρον και ομιχλην και επιβαινων επι τα υψη της γης κυριος ο θεος ο παντοκρατωρ ονομα αυτω

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 4      

By Helen Kennedy

In chapter 4 of the Book of Amos, verses 1-3 talk about people who pervert the truths of the church. They will fall into falsities in outermost things. Fish are lower things, so it follows that fishhooks (verse 2) would mean being caught and held fast in natural or lower things.

Verses 4-6 talk about things of worship such as tithes and sacrifices. These look similar to genuine worship, but are only in outermost things. We can tell because ‘teeth’ (verse 6) represent ultimates or outermost things (Secrets of Heaven 6380), so 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 the rest are false, in consequence of which truths will have no power. 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 in how blight attacked 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 meaning the mixing of good and evil together (Secrets of Heaven 1001:2).

This extends to all things of the church, 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.
