1 Ve eder, I säkre på Sion, I sorglöse på Samarias berg, I ädlingar bland förstlingsfolket, I som Israels hus plägar vända sig till!

2 Gån åstad till Kalne och sen efter, dragen därifrån till Stora Hamat, och faren så ned till filistéernas Gat: äro de bättre än rikena här, eller är deras område större än edert område?

3 Ve eder, I som menen att olycksdagen skall vara fjärran, men likväl inbjuden våldet att trona hos eder;

4 I som liggen på soffor av elfenben och haven det makligt på edra bäddar; I som äten lamm, utvalda ur hjorden, och kalvar, hämtade från gödstallet;

5 I som skrålen visor till harpans ljud och tänken ut åt eder musikinstrumenter såsom David;

6 I som dricken vin ur stora bålar och bruken salvor av yppersta olja, men icke bekymren eder om Josefs skada!

7 Fördenskull skola nu dessa främst föras bort i fångenskap; de som nu hava det så makligt få då sluta med sitt skrål.

8 Herren, HE EN har svurit vid sig själv, säger HE EN, härskarornas Gud: Jakobs stolthet är mig en styggelse, och hans palatser hatar jag; jag skall giva staden till pris med allt vad däri är.

9 Och det skall ske, att om än tio män finnas kvar i ett och samma hus, så skola de likväl alla .

10 När sedan en frände till någon av de döda med förbrännarens hjälp vill skaffa benen ut ur huset, och därvid ropar till en som är i det inre av huset: »Finnes här någon mer än du?», då måste denne svara: »Ingen»; och den förre skall då säga: » ätt så, stillhet må råda; ty HE ENS namn får icke bliva nämnt.»

11 Ty se, på HE ENS bud skola de stora husen bliva slagna i spillror och de små husen i splittror.

12 Kunna väl hästar springa uppför en klippbrant, eller plöjer man där med oxar? -- eftersom I viljen förvandla rätten till en giftplanta och rättfärdighetens frukt till malört,

13 I som glädjen eder över det som är intet värt och sägen: »Genom vår egen styrka hava vi ju berett oss horn

14 Ty se, jag skall uppväcka ett folk mot eder, I av Israels hus, säger Herren, härskarornas Gud; och de skola förtrycka edert land, från det ställe där vägen går till Hamat ända till Hedmarksbäcken.

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.
