1 sier Herren: For tre misgjerninger av Moab, ja for fire vil jeg ikke ta det tilbake - fordi de brente Edom-kongens ben til kalk;

2 men jeg vil sende ild mot Moab, og den skal fortære Kerijots palasser, og Moab skal under krigsbulder, under hærskrik, under basunens lyd,

3 og jeg vil utrydde dommeren av deres land, og alle dets fyrster vil jeg drepe sammen med ham, sier Herren.

4 sier Herren: For tre misgjerninger av Juda, ja for fire vil jeg ikke ta det tilbake - fordi de foraktet Herrens lov og ikke holdt hans bud, og deres løgnguder, som deres fedre hadde fulgt, førte dem vill;

5 men jeg vil sende ild mot Juda, og den skal fortære Jerusalems palasser.

6 sier Herren: For tre misgjerninger av Israel, ja for fire vil jeg ikke ta det tilbake - fordi de selger den uskyldige for penger og den fattige for et par sko,

7 de som higer efter å se støv på de ringes hode og bøier retten for de saktmodige. En mann og hans far går til samme pike, så de vanhelliger mitt hellige navn.

8 På pantsatte klær strekker de sig ved hvert alter, og vin som de har tatt som bøter, drikker de i sin Guds hus.

9 Og jeg utryddet da amorittene foran dem, de som var høie som sedertrær og sterke som eketrær, og jeg ødela deres frukt oventil og deres røtter nedentil,

10 og jeg førte eder op fra Egyptens land, og jeg ledet eder i ørkenen i firti år, forat I skulde få amorittens land til eiendom,

11 og jeg opvakte nogen av eders sønner til profeter, og nogen av eders unge menn til nasireere. Er det ikke så, I Israels barn? sier Herren.

12 Men I fikk nasireerne til å drikke vin, og I forbød profetene å profetere.

13 Se, jeg vil knuge eder ned, likesom en vogn full av kornbånd knuger allting ned;

14 den raske skal intet tilfluktssted finne, og den sterke ikke kunne gjøre bruk av sin kraft, og helten ikke berge sitt liv;

15 bueskytteren skal ikke holde stand, den som er lett på foten, skal ikke berge sitt liv, og heller ikke rytteren på sin hest,

16 den modigste iblandt heltene skal flykte naken på den dag, sier Herren.

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 2      

By Helen Kennedy

In this chapter, the Lord tells how people in Moab, Judah and Israel will be punished because they're continuing in their evils. Starting in verse 9, He 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).
