1 Hỡi những bò cái của Ba-san hãy nghe, bay ở trên núi của Sa-ma-ri; hiếp đáp kẻ nghèo nàn, hành hạ kẻ thiếu thốn, nói cùng chúa chúng nó rằng: Hãy đem đến, chúng ta cùng uống!

2 Chúa Giê-hô-va đã dùng sự thánh khiết Ngài mà thề rằng: Nầy, những ngày sẽ đến trên các ngươi, người ta sẽ dùng móc bắt lấy các ngươi, dân sót lại của các ngươi sẽ bị bắt lấy bởi những lưỡi câu.

3 Các ngươi sẽ đi ra bởi những nơi sứt mẻ, mỗi người đi thẳng trước mặt mình, và các ngươi sẽ ném mình vào Ha-môn, Ðức Giê-hô-va phán vậy.

4 Hãy đi đến Bê-tên, và phạm tội; hãy đi đến Ghinh-ganh, và phạm tội thêm! Mỗi buổi sáng hãy đem của lễ mình đến, và cứ ba ngày thì dâng các phần mười của các ngươi!

5 Hãy đốt của lễ thù ân có men; hãy rao ra những của lễ lạc hiến; hãy làm cho thiên hạ biết; hỡi con cái Y-sơ-ra-ên, vì các ngươi ưa thích điều đó, Chúa Giê-hô-va phán vậy.

6 Còn như ta, ta đã làm cho răng các ngươi nên sạch trong mọi thành các ngươi, và làm cho thiếu bánh trong mọi nơi các ngươi ở. Ðức Giê-hô-va phán: Dầu vậy các ngươi cũng không trở lại cùng ta!

7 Ta cũng đã không xuống mưa cho các ngươi trong ba tháng trước mùa gặt; ta đã mưa trên thành nầy và không mưa trên thành khác. uộng nầy đã được mưa, còn ruộng kia không được nhuận tưới thì khô héo.

8 Dường ấy, người trong hai hoặc ba thành đi đến một thành đặng uống nước, mà không tìm đến cho đỡ khát. Nhưng các ngươi không trở về cùng ta, Ðức Giê-hô-va phán vậy.

9 Ta đã dùng gió nóng và sâu lúa mà đánh các ngươi. Có nhiều vườn rau, vườn nho, cây vả, cây ô-li-ve của các ngươi đã bị sâu keo cắn phá. Nhưng các ngươi chẳng trở về cùng ta, Ðức Giê-hô-va phán vậy.

10 Ta đã khiến ôn dịch đến trong các ngươi, cũng như trong Ê-díp-tô. Ta đã dùng gươm giết chết những kẻ trai trẻ của các ngươi, và những ngựa của các ngươi đã bị đem đi. Ta đã làm cho mùi hôi hám từ trong trại quân các ngươi bay lên lỗ mũi các ngươi. Nhưng các ngươi chẳng trở về cùng ta, Ðức Giê-hô-va phán vậy.

11 Ta đã lật đổ giữa các ngươi, như Ðức Chúa Trời đã lập đổ Sô-đôm và Gô-mô-rơ, và các ngươi đã như cái que rút ra khỏi lửa. Nhưng các ngươi chẳng trở về cùng ta, Giê-hô-va phán vậy.

12 Hỡi Y-sơ-ra-ên, vậy nên ta sẽ đãi ngươi dường ấy; hỡi Y-sơ-ra-ên, vì ta sẽ đãi ngươi dường ấy, nên ngươi khá sửa soạn mà gặp Ðức Chúa Trời ngươi.

13 Thật, ấy là Ngài đã làm nên các núi và dựng nên gió. Ấy là Ngài làm cho người ta biết ý tưởng riêng của mình, đổi ban mai ra tối tăm, và bước đi trên những chỗ cao trên đất. Danh Ngài là Giê-hô-va Ðức Chúa Trời vạn quân.


Exploring the Meaning of A-mốt 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.
