1 Ouvi esta palavra que levanto como lamentação sobre vós, ó casa de Israel.

2 A virgem de Israel caiu; nunca mais tornará a levantar-se; desamparada jaz na sua terra; não há quem a levante.

3 Porque assim diz o Senhor Deus: A cidade da qual saem mil terá de resto cem, e aquela da qual saem cem terá dez para a casa de Israel.

4 Pois assim diz o Senhor à casa de Israel: Buscai-me, e vivei.

5 Mas não busqueis a Betel, nem entreis em Gilgal, nem passeis a Berseba; porque Gilgal certamente irá ao cativeiro, e Betel será desfeita em nada.

6 Buscai ao Senhor, e vivei; para que ele não irrompa na casa de José como fogo e a consuma, e não haja em Betel quem o apague.

7 Vós que converteis o juízo em alosna, e deitais por terra a justiça,

8 procurai aquele que fez as Plêiades e o Oriom, e torna a sombra da noite em manhã, e transforma o dia em noite; o que chama as águas do mar, e as derrama sobre a terra; o Senhor é o seu nome.

9 O que faz vir súbita destruição sobre o forte, de sorte que vem a ruína sobre a fortaleza.

10 Eles odeiam ao que na porta os repreende, e abominam ao que fala a verdade.

11 Portanto, visto que pisais o pobre, e dele exigis tributo de trigo, embora tenhais edificado casas de pedras lavradas, não habitareis nelas; e embora tenhais plantado vinhas desejáveis, não bebereis do seu vinho.

12 Pois sei que são muitas as vossas transgressões, e graves os vossos pecados; afligis o justo, aceitais peitas, e na porta negais o direito aos necessitados.

13 Portanto, o que for prudente guardará silêncio naquele tempo, porque o tempo será mau.

14 Buscai o bem, e não o mal, para que vivais; e assim o Senhor, o Deus dos exércitos, estará convosco, como dizeis.

15 Aborrecei o mal, e amai o bem, e estabelecei o juízo na porta. Talvez o Senhor, o Deus dos exércitos, tenha piedade do resto de José.

16 Portanto, assim diz o Senhor Deus dos exércitos, o Senhor: Em todas as praças haverá pranto, e em todas as ruas dirão: Ai! ai! E ao lavrador chamarão para choro, e para pranto os que souberem prantear.

17 E em todas as vinhas haverá pranto; porque passarei pelo meio de ti, diz o Senhor.

18 Ai de vós que desejais o dia do Senhor! Para que quereis vós este dia do Senhor? Ele é trevas e não luz.

19 E como se um homem fugisse de diante do leão, e se encontrasse com ele o urso; ou como se, entrando em casa, encostasse a mão à parede, e o mordesse uma cobra.

20 Não será, pois, o dia do Senhor trevas e não luz? não será completa escuridade, sem nenhum resplendor?

21 Aborreço, desprezo as vossas festas, e não me deleito nas vossas assembléias solenes.

22 Ainda que me ofereçais holocaustos, juntamente com as vossas ofertas de cereais, não me agradarei deles; nem atentarei para as ofertas pacíficas de vossos animais cevados.

23 Afasta de mim o estrépito dos teus cânticos, porque não ouvirei as melodias das tuas liras.

24 Corra, porém, a justiça como as águas, e a retidão como o ribeiro perene.

25 Oferecestes-me vós sacrifícios e oblações no deserto por quarenta anos, ó casa de Israel?

26 Sim, levastes Sicute, vosso rei, e Quium, vosso deus-estrela, imagens que fizestes para vos mesmos.

27 Portanto vos levarei cativos para além de Damasco, diz o Senhor, cujo nome é o Deus dos exércitos.

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).
