1 Dinggin ninyo ang salitang ito na aking itinataghoy sa inyo, Oh sangbahayan ni Israel.

2 Ang dalaga ng Israel ay nabuwal; siya'y hindi na magbabangon pa, siya'y nahagis sa kaniyang lupain; walang magbangon sa kaniya.

3 Sapagka't ganito ang sabi ng Panginoong Dios: Ang bayan na lalabas na isang libo, maiiwang isang daan, at ang lalabas na isang daan ay maiiwang sangpu, sa sangbahayan ni Israel.

4 Sapagka't ganito ang sabi ng Panginoon sa sangbahayan ni Israel; Hanapin ninyo ako, at kayo'y mangabubuhay;

5 Nguni't huwag ninyong hanapin ang Beth-el, ni magsipasok man sa Gilgal, at huwag kayong magsidaan sa Beer-seba: sapagka't walang pagsala ang Gilgal ay papasok sa pagkabihag, at ang Beth-el ay mauuwi sa wala.

6 Inyong hanapin ang Panginoon, at kayo'y mangabubuhay; baka siya'y sumigalbong parang apoy sa sangbahayan ni Jose, at supukin yaon, at sa Beth-el ay walang makapapatay niyaon:

7 Kayong nagpapaging ajenjo sa kahatulan, at nagwawaksi ng katuwiran sa lupa.

8 Inyong hanapin ang lumikha ng mga Pleyades at ng Orion, at ang lilim ng kamatayan ay pinapaging umaga, pinapagdilim ang araw sa pamamagitan ng gabi; yaong tumatawag sa tubig sa dagat, at nagbubugso ng mga yaon sa ibabaw ng lupa (Panginoon ang siya niyang pangalan);

9 Yaong nagdadala ng biglang kabuwalan sa malakas, na anopa't ang pagkasira ay dumarating sa katibayan.

10 Kanilang kinapopootan ang nananaway sa pintuang-bayan, at kanilang kinasusuklaman ang nagsasalita ng matuwid.

11 Palibhasa nga't inyong niyayapakan ang dukha, at inyong hinihingan siya ng trigo: kayo'y nangagtayo ng mga bahay na batong tinabas, nguni't hindi ninyo tatahanan; kayo'y nangagtanim ng mga maligayang ubasan, nguni't hindi kayo magsisiinom ng alak niyaon.

12 Sapagka't talastas ko kung gaano karami ang inyong mga pagsalangsang, at kung gaano kalaki ang inyong mga kasalanan: kayong nagsisidalamhati sa ganap, na kinukunan ninyo ng suhol, at inyong inililigaw sa kanilang matuwid ang mapagkailangan sa pintuang-bayan.

13 Kaya't siya na mabait ay tatahimik sa panahong yaon; sapagka't masamang panahon.

14 Magsihanap kayo ng kabutihan, at huwag kasamaan, upang kayo'y mangabuhay; at sa gayo'y ang Panginoon, ang Dios ng mga hukbo, ay sasa inyo, gaya ng inyong sinasabi.

15 Inyong kapootan ang masama, at ibigin ang mabuti, at kayo'y mangagtatatag ng kahatulan sa pintuang-bayan: marahil ang Panginoon, ang Dios ng mga hukbo ay magiging mapagbiyaya sa nalabi sa Jose.

16 Kaya't ganito ang sabi ng Panginoon, ng Dios ng mga hukbo, ng Panginoon: Panaghoy ay sa lahat na daan; at sila'y mangagsasabi sa lahat na lansangan, Sa aba! sa aba! at kanilang tatawagin ang mangbubukid sa pananambitan, at ang lahat na bihasa sa pananaghoy sa pagtaghoy.

17 At sa lahat ng ubasan ay magkakaroon ng panaghoy; sapagka't ako'y daraan sa gitna mo, sabi ng Panginoon.

18 Sa aba ninyo na nangagnanasa ng kaarawan ng Panginoon! bakit ninyo ninanasa ang kaarawan ng Panginoon? kadiliman nga, at hindi kaliwanagan.

19 Gaya ng kung ang tao ay tumatakas sa leon, at isang oso ang sumasalubong sa kaniya; o pumapasok sa bahay at ikinakapit ang kaniyang kamay sa pinid, at isang ahas ang tumutuka sa kaniya.

20 Hindi baga magiging kadiliman ang kaarawan ng Panginoon, at hindi kaliwanagan? na totoong madilim, at walang ningning?

21 Aking kinapopootan, aking hinahamak ang inyong mga kapistahan, at hindi ako malulugod sa inyong mga takdang kapulungan.

22 Oo, bagaman inyong ihandog sa akin ang inyong mga handog na susunugin at mga handog na harina, hindi ko tatanggapin; ni akin mang kalulugdan ang mga handog tungkol sa kapayapaan na inyong mga matabang hayop.

23 Ihiwalay mo sa akin ang ingay ng iyong mga awit; sapagka't hindi ko didinggin ang tinig ng iyong mga biola.

24 Kundi bumugso ang katarungan na parang tubig, at ang katuwiran na parang malakas na agos.

25 Nagdala baga kayo sa akin ng mga hain, at ng mga handog sa ilang na apat na pung taon, Oh sangbahayan ni Israel?

26 Oo, inyong pinasan ang tabernakulo ng inyong hari at ang dambana ng inyong mga larawan, ang bituin ng inyong dios, na inyong ginawa para sa inyong sarili.

27 Kaya't kayo'y aking papapasukin sa pagkabihag sa dako roon ng Damasco, sabi ng Panginoon, na ang pangala'y Dios ng mga hukbo.

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).
