1 Ve de trygge på Sion og de sorgløse på Samarias fjell, de fornemme blandt det ypperste av folkene, dem som Israels hus pleier å vende sig til!

2 Dra over til Kalne og se, og gå videre til det store Hamat, og stig ned til Gat i Filisterland! Er de bedre enn disse riker, eller er deres land større enn eders land?

3 I som jager den onde dag langt bort og flytter urettens sete nær til eder*, / {* I vil intet høre om straffens dag, og allikevel lar I vold og urett råde blandt eder.}

4 I som ligger på elfenbensbenker og dovner eder på eders leier, og som eter lam av hjorden og kalver fra fjøset,

5 som synger allslags tull til harpens toner og har uttenkt eder strengeinstrumenter, likesom David,

6 som drikker vin av skåler og salver eder med den ypperste olje, men ikke sørger over Josefs skade.

7 Derfor skal de nu vandre ut av landet fremst blandt dem som føres bort, og med skrålet av dem som dovner sig, skal det være slutt.

8 Herren, Israels Gud, har svoret ved sig selv, sier Herren, hærskarenes Gud: Jeg avskyr Jakobs stolthet og hater hans palasser, og jeg vil overgi byen og alt det som er i den.

9 Og om det er ti menn tilbake i ett hus, da skal de .

10 Og en manns nærmeste frende, som skal brenne ham*, skal ta ham og bære benene ut av huset, og han skal si til den som er i husets innerste krok: Er det ennu nogen hos dig? Og han skal svare: Nei, ingen! Da skal han si: Hysj! Herrens navn må ikke nevnes! / {* fordi mengden av de døde (AMO 8, 3) gjør det umulig å begrave dem.}

11 For se, Herren byder, og de slår det store hus så det synker i grus, og det lille hus så det revner.

12 Springer vel hestene opefter fjellet, eller pløies det der med okser? siden I har forvendt retten til gift og rettferdighetens frukter til malurt.

13 I som gleder eder over det som intet er, og som sier: Er det ikke ved vår egen styrke vi har vunnet oss velde?

14 For se, jeg opvekker et folk mot eder, Israels hus, sier Herren, hærskarenes Gud, og de skal undertrykke eder fra der hvor veien går til Hamat, og like til bekken i ødemarken.

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.
