1 Vargas tiems, kurie nerūpestingai gyvena Sione ir pasitiki Samarijos kalnu, kurie vadinami tautų pažiba, pas kuriuos susirinko Izraelio namai.

2 Eikite į Kalnę ir pasižiūrėkite; iš ten į didįjį miestą Hamatą, o po to nusileiskite į filistinų Gatą. Ar jūs geresni už šitas karalystes, ar jūsų kraštas didesnis už jų kraštus?

3 Jūs nenorite galvoti apie nelaimės dieną, tačiau priartinate smurto viešpatavimą!

4 Jūs gulite dramblio kaulo lovose ir išsitiesiate pataluose, valgote ėriukus iš bandos ir veršius iš gardo.

5 Jūs dainuojate, pritariant arfoms, ir kuriate muzikos kūrinius, lygindamiesi su Dovydu.

6 Jūs geriate vyną iš taurių ir tepatės geriausiu aliejumi, bet nesisielojate dėl Juozapo nelaimių.

7 Todėl jie pirmieji eis į nelaisvę ir pasibaigs tų, kurie gulėjo išsitiesę, lėbavimas.

8 Viešpats Dievas prisiekė savimi: “Aš bjauriuosi Jokūbo puikybe, nekenčiu jo rūmų ir atiduosiu miestą priešams su viskuo, kas jame yra”.

9 Ir jei liks dešimt žmonių vienuose namuose, jie mirs!

10 Paims juos giminaitis ar tas, kuris degina kūnus, ir išneš lavonus iš namų, ir sakys likusiam namuose: “Ar dar yra gyvų su tavimi?”, tas atsakys: “Nėra!” Ir jis sakys: “Tylėk! Negalima minėti Viešpaties vardo”.

11 Viešpats įsakys paversti didžiuosius namus griuvėsiais, o mažuosius sudaužyti į šipulius.

12 Argi žirgai bėga uolomis? Argi jas aria jaučiais? Tačiau jūs pavertėte teisingumą nuodais ir teisumo vaisių­kartėliu.

13 “Vargas tiems, kurie džiaugiasi niekais ir sako: ‘Ar ne savo jėgomis tapome galingi?’

14 Izraelio namai, Aš sukelsiu prieš jus tautą, kuri pavergs jus nuo Hamato iki dykumos upelio”,­sako Viešpats, kareivijų Dievas.

Exploring the Meaning of Amos 6      

By Helen Kennedy

Woe is called upon people who seem to live a life of ease and fill it with pleasures -- for example, those who “eat lambs from the flock.” (Amos 6:4)

Using the significations mentioned elsewhere in Swedenborg’s works, this could mean “those who attribute innocence (the lamb) to themselves,” or think they are blameless when they have actually sinned.

Also, to ask, “Do horses run on rocks?”(Amos 6:12) is a great image for when our understanding is filled with only literal or external truths but doesn’t delve into deeper ones that show the Lord’s leading more clearly.
