Judgment on Neighbor Nations

1 The words of Amos, who was among the sheepherders R1 from Tekoa, R2 which he envisioned F1 in visions concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah R3 king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam R4 son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the earthquake. R5

2 He said,

"The LORD R6 roars from Zion

And from Jerusalem He utters His voice;

And the shepherds' pasture R7 grounds mourn,

And the summit R8 F2 of Carmel dries up."

3 Thus says the LORD,

"For three R9 transgressions of Damascus R10 and for four

I will not revoke F3 its punishment,

Because they threshed Gilead with implements of sharp iron.

4 "So I will send fire upon the house of Hazael

And it will consume the citadels of Ben-hadad. R11

5 "I will also break R12 the gate bar of Damascus,

And cut off the inhabitant from the valley F4 of Aven,

And him who holds the scepter, from Beth-eden;

So the people of Aram will go exiled to Kir," R13

Says the LORD.

6 Thus says the LORD,

"For three transgressions of Gaza R14 and for four

I will not revoke its punishment,

Because they deported an entire population

To deliver R15 it up to Edom.

7 "So I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza

And it will consume her citadels.

8 "I will also cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, R16

And him who holds the scepter, from Ashkelon; R17

I will even unleash F5 My power F6 upon Ekron,

And the remnant of the Philistines R18 will perish,"

Says the Lord GOD F7 .

9 Thus says the LORD,

"For three transgressions of Tyre R19 and for four

I will not revoke its punishment,

Because they delivered up an entire population to Edom

And did not remember the covenant of brotherhood. R20 F8

10 "So I will send R21 fire upon the wall of Tyre

And it will consume her citadels."

11 Thus says the LORD,

"For three transgressions of Edom R22 and for four

I will not revoke its punishment,

Because he pursued R23 his brother with the sword,

While he stifled F9 his compassion;

His anger also tore R24 continually,

And he maintained his fury forever.

12 "So I will send fire upon Teman R25

And it will consume the citadels of Bozrah."

13 Thus says the LORD,

"For three transgressions of the sons of Ammon R26 and for four

I will not revoke its punishment,

Because they ripped R27 open the pregnant women of Gilead

In order to enlarge R28 their borders.

14 "So I will kindle a fire on the wall of Rabbah R29

And it will consume her citadels

Amid war R30 F10 cries on the day of battle,

And a storm R31 on the day of tempest.

15 "Their king R32 will go into exile,

He and his princes together," says the LORD.
