1 พระเยโฮวาห์ตรัสดังนี้ว่า "เพราะเหตุการละเมิดของเมืองโมอับ สามครั้งและสี่ครั้ง เราจะไม่ยอมกลับการลงทัณฑ์ เพราะเขาได้เผากระดูกของกษัตริย์เอโดมให้เป็นปูน

2 แต่ เราจะส่งไฟมาบนโมอับ และไฟนั้นจะเผาผลาญปราสาททั้งหลายของเคริโอทเสีย และโมอับจะตายท่ามกลางเสียงสับสนอลหม่าน ท่ามกลางเสียงโห่ร้องและเสียงแตร

3 เราจะตัดผู้วินิจฉัยออกเสียจากท่ามกลางเมืองนั้น และจะประหารเจ้านายทั้งหลายของเมืองนั้นเสียพร้อมกับผู้วินิจฉัย" พระเยโฮวาห์ตรัสดังนี้แหละ

4 พระเยโฮวาห์ตรัสดังนี้ว่า "เพราะเหตุการละเมิดของยูดาห์ สามครั้งและสี่ครั้ง เราจะไม่ยอมกลับการลงทัณฑ์ เพราะว่าเขาปฏิเสธไม่รับพระราชบัญญัติของพระเยโฮวาห์ และมิได้รักษาพระบัญญัติของพระองค์ และการมุสาของเขาได้พาให้เขาหลงเจิ่นไป ตามเยี่ยงที่บิดาของเขาได้ดำเนินมาแล้ว

5 แต่ เราจะส่งไฟมาบนยูดาห์ และไฟนั้นจะเผาผลาญปราสาททั้งหลายของเยรูซาเล็มเสีย"

6 พระเยโฮวาห์ตรัสดังนี้ว่า "เพราะเหตุการละเมิดของอิสราเอล สามครั้งและสี่ครั้ง เราจะไม่ยอมกลับการลงทัณฑ์ เพราะเขาได้ขายคนชอบธรรมเอาเงิน และขายคนขัดสนเอารองเท้าคู่เดียว

7 ซึ่งกระหายหาฝุ่นละอองแห่งแผ่นดินโลกบนศีรษะของคนจน และผลักคนที่ถ่อมใจออกเสียจากหนทางของเขา บุตรชายและบิดาของเขาเข้าหาหญิงคนเดียวกัน เพื่อลบหลู่นามบริสุทธิ์ของเรา

8 ตัวเขาเองนอนอยู่ข้างแท่นบูชาทุกแท่น อยู่บนเสื้อผ้าที่เขายึดมาเป็นประกัน และในนิเวศแห่งพระของเขา เขาทั้งหลายดื่มเหล้าองุ่นสำหรับผู้ที่ถูกปรับโทษ

9 เรายังได้ล้างผลาญคนอาโมไรต์ตรงหน้าเขา ซึ่งส่วนสูงของเขาเหมือนอย่างความสูงของต้นสนสีดาร์ และเป็นผู้ที่แข็งแรงอย่างกับต้นโอ๊ก เราทำลายผลข้างบนของเขาเสีย และทำลายรากข้างล่างของเขาเสีย

10 เรานำเจ้าขึ้นมาจากแผ่นดินอียิปต์ และได้นำเจ้าถึงสี่สิบปีในถิ่นทุรกันดาร เพื่อจะได้กรรมสิทธิ์ที่ดินของคนอาโมไรต์

11 เราได้ตั้งบุตรชายบางคนของเจ้าให้เป็นผู้พยากรณ์ และได้ตั้งชายหนุ่มบางคนของเจ้าให้เป็นพวกนาศีร์ โอ คนอิสราเอลเอ๋ย ไม่เป็นความจริงดังนี้หรือ" พระเยโฮวาห์ตรัสดังนี้แหละ

12 "แต่เจ้าทั้งหลายได้กระทำให้พวกนาศีดื่มเหล้าองุ่น และบัญชาพวกผู้พยากรณ์สั่งว่า `เจ้าอย่าพยากรณ์เลย'

13 ดูเถิด เจ้ากดเราลง เหมือนเกวียนที่เต็มด้วยฟ่อนข้าวกดยัดลง

14 ฉะนั้นการหนีจะประลาตไปจากผู้มีฝีเท้ารวดเร็ว คนที่แข็งแรงจะไม่สามารถเสริมกำลังของเขา คนที่มีกำลังมากจะช่วยชีวิตของตนก็ไม่ได้

15 ผู้ที่ถือคันธนูจะไม่ยืนยงอยู่ได้ ผู้มีฝีเท้าเร็วก็ช่วยตัวเองให้รอดพ้นไม่ได้ หรือผู้ที่ขี่ม้าก็ช่วยตัวเองให้รอดพ้นไม่ได้เหมือนกัน

16 และผู้ที่มีใจกล้าหาญท่ามกลางผู้มีกำลังเข้มแข็งเหล่านั้นจะหนีไปอย่างเปลือยเปล่าในวันนั้น" พระเยโฮวาห์ตรัสดังนี้แหละ


Exploring the Meaning of เอมัส 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.
