1 Dinggin ninyo ang salitang ito, Oh mga baka ng Basan, na nangasa bundok ng Samaria, na nagsisipighati sa mga dukha, na nagsisigipit sa mga mapagkailangan, na nangagsasabi sa kanilang mga panginoon, Dalhin ninyo rito, at ating inumin.

2 Ang Panginoong Dios ay sumumpa sa pamamagitan ng kaniyang kabanalan, na, narito, ang mga kaarawan ay darating sa inyo, na kanilang huhulihin kayo ng mga taga ng bingwit, at ang nalabi sa inyo ay ng mga pamingwit.

3 At kayo'y magsisilabas sa mga sira, na bawa't isa'y tuloytuloy; at kayo'y mangagpapakatapon sa Harmon, sabi ng Panginoon.

4 Magsiparoon kayo sa Beth-el, at magsisalangsang kayo; sa Gilgal, at paramihin ninyo ang pagsalangsang; at inyong dalhin ang inyong mga hain tuwing umaga, at ang inyong mga ikasangpung bahagi tuwing tatlong araw;

5 At kayo'y mangaghandog ng hain ng pasasalamat na may lebadura, at kayo'y mangaghayag ng kusang mga handog at inyong itanyag; sapagka't ito'y nakalulugod sa inyo, Oh ninyong mga anak ni Israel, sabi ng Panginoong Dios.

6 At binigyan ko naman kayo ng kalinisan ng mga ngipin sa lahat ninyong mga bayan, at kakulangan ng tinapay sa lahat ninyong mga dako; gayon ma'y hindi kayo nanganumbalik sa akin, sabi ng Panginoon.

7 At akin namang pinigil ang ulan sa inyo, nang tatlong buwan na lamang at pagaani na; at aking pinaulan sa isang bayan, at hindi ko pinaulan sa kabilang bayan: isang bahagi ay inulanan, at ang bahagi na hindi inulanan ay natuyo.

8 Sa gayo'y dalawa o tatlong bayan ay nagsigala sa isang bayan upang magsiinom ng tubig, at hindi nangapawi ang uhaw: gayon ma'y hindi kayo nanganumbalik sa akin, sabi ng Panginoon.

9 Aking sinalot kayo ng pagkalanta at ng amag: ang karamihan ng inyong mga halaman, at ng inyong mga ubasan, at ng inyong mga igusan, at ng inyong mga olibohan ay nilipol ng tipaklong: gayon ma'y hindi kayo nanganumbalik sa akin, sabi ng Panginoon.

10 Aking pinarating sa gitna ninyo ang salot na gaya ng sa Egipto: ang inyong mga binata ay pinatay ko ng tabak, at dinala ko ang inyong mga kabayo; at aking pinaalingasaw ang baho ng inyong kampamento hanggang sa inyong mga butas ng ilong; gayon ma'y hindi kayo nanganumbalik sa akin, sabi ng Panginoon.

11 Aking ibinuwal ang iba sa inyo, gaya nang ibuwal ng Dios ang Sodoma at Gomorra, at kayo'y naging gaya ng dupong na naagaw sa apoy: gayon ma'y hindi kayo nanganumbalik sa akin, sabi ng Panginoon.

12 Kaya't ganito ang gagawin ko sa iyo, Oh Israel; at yamang aking gagawin ito sa iyo, humanda kang salubungin mo ang iyong Dios, Oh Israel.

13 Sapagka't, narito, siyang nagaanyo ng mga bundok, at lumilikha ng hangin, at nagpapahayag sa tao kung ano ang kaniyang pagiisip; na nagpapadilim ng umaga, at yumayapak sa mga mataas na dako ng lupa, ang Panginoon, ang Dios ng mga hukbo ay siya niyang pangalan.


Exploring the Meaning of Amos 4      

Napsal(a) Helen Kennedy

In chapter 4 of the Book of Amos, verses 1-3 are talking about people who pervert the truths of the church. They will fall into falsities in outermost things.

In the Bible, fish represent "lower" things than mammals, so we can interpret the fishhooks in verse 2 as meaning being caught and held fast in natural or lower things.

Verses 4-6 are about acts of worship such as tithes and sacrifices. These look similar to genuine worship, but are only external sorts of things. We can tell because ‘teeth’ (in verse 6) represent ultimates or outermost things (see Secrets of Heaven 6380). 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 where there are too many false ideas, the truths don't get through. 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 by blight attacking 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 means the mixing of good and evil together. (See Secrets of Heaven 1001[2]).

This extends to all things of the church, with 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.
