1 Así dijo el SEÑOR: Por tres pecados de Moab, y por el cuarto, no la convertiré; porque quemó los huesos del rey de Idumea hasta tornarlos en cal.

2 Y meteré fuego en Moab, y consumirá los palacios de Queriot; y morirá Moab en alboroto, en estrépito y sonido de trompeta.

3 Y quitaré el juez de en medio de él, y mataré con él a todos sus príncipes, dijo el SEÑOR.

4 Así dijo el SEÑOR: Por tres pecados de Judá, y por el cuarto, no la convertiré; porque menospreciaron la ley del SEÑOR, y no guardaron sus ordenanzas; y sus mentiras los hicieron errar, en pos de las cuales anduvieron sus padres.

5 Y meteré fuego en Judá, el cual consumirá los palacios de Jerusalén.

6 Así dijo el SEÑOR: Por tres pecados de Israel, y por el cuarto, no la convertiré; porque vendieron por dinero al justo, y al pobre por un par de zapatos.

7 Que anhelan porque haya un polvo de tierra sobre la cabeza de los pobres, y tuercen el camino de los humildes; y el hombre y su padre entraron a la misma joven, profanando mi santo Nombre.

8 Y sobre las ropas empeñadas se acuestan junto a cualquier altar; y el vino de los penados beben en la casa de sus dioses.

9 Y yo destruí delante de ellos al amorreo, cuya altura era como la altura de los cedros, y fuerte como un alcornoque; y destruí su fruto arriba, y sus raíces abajo.

10 Y yo os hice a vosotros subir de la tierra de Egipto, y os traje por el desierto cuarenta años, para que poseyeseis la tierra del amorreo.

11 Y levanté de vuestros hijos para profetas, y de vuestros jóvenes para que fuesen nazareos. ¿No es esto así, hijos de Israel dijo el SEÑOR?

12 Mas vosotros disteis de beber vino a los nazareos; y a los profetas mandasteis, diciendo: No profeticéis.

13 Pues he aquí, yo os apretaré en vuestro lugar, como se aprieta el carro lleno de haces;

14 y la huida perecerá del ligero, y el fuerte no esforzará su fuerza, ni el valiente librará su alma;

15 Y el que toma el arco no estará en pie, ni escapará el ligero de pies, ni el que cabalga en caballo salvará su vida.

16 El esforzado entre esforzados huirá desnudo aquel día, dijo el SEÑOR.


Exploring the Meaning of Amós 2      

Napsal(a) E. Taylor and Helen Kennedy

In the Book of Amos, chapter two begins with the Lord declaring his anger against the people of Moab, Judea, and Israel. They have committed various wrongs against the Lord and the church, despite His efforts to guide them, and the chapter goes on to suggest that the Lord is losing faith in His people.

Verses 1-8 of this chapter describe the specific ways in which people can destroy or misuse the good and truth of the Word.

Verses 1-3 discuss the Moabites specifically. They represent people who corrupt the good and truth of the church, meaning they would twist what they learned from the Word to suit their own selfish purposes. Bones represent natural truths that we can use as a framework to support all higher knowledge that we learn, so the fact that people were ‘burning bones’ means they destroyed their own foundation to gain spiritual knowledge. In verse 3, the Lord says that he will cut off the judge and the prince, meaning that the Moabites’ failure to determine what is good (like the judge), and lead a life based in truth (like the prince) will not stand against the real spiritual principles of the Lord.

Verses 4-5 are about people who destroy celestial things from the Word, by turning their hearts away from the Lord. The people of Judea had believed they were the Lord’s chosen people for so many generations at this point that they grew complacent, and no longer felt they needed to obey the Lord’s commandments.

Verses 6-8 tell what can happen when people pervert spiritual truths from the church, and turn them into falsities. Swedenborg writes that most of the images from these verses - silver, shoes, dust, wine - can all represent either falsity, or only the most external type of truth. The Israelites were turning to these falsities and to their own greed, instead of using the Lord’s truths to help the poor and the meek.

In verses 9-11, the Lord reminds the children of Israel of everything he has done to prepare them for salvation. He fought for them and delivered them from Egypt, lifted up their leaders and prophets, and provided them with the truths they would need in order to be regenerated.

He also shows that He has the strength to punish them, because He’s already overcome the Amorites, who symbolize evil in general (Secrets of Heaven 6306).

Verses 12-16 describe how the Israelites perverted the knowledge the Lord tried to give them. Instead of trusting what the Lord had taught them, they turned to their own self-righteousness for guidance. Since they thought they had all the answers, they corrupted the Nazarites and silenced the prophets. Without a proper understanding of the Lord’s teachings, the people were no longer equipped to fight against evils or to grow spiritually.

At face value, this chapter depicts the Lord as an angry god who will punish those who disobey him. What seems to be anger is actually the Lord fiercely protecting us, and calling us to follow Him. This chapter reminds us to turn our hearts toward the Lord, and to live according to the truths of the Word.
