Amos 5:4-15 [ Verse 8 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
4 For thus says the LORD to the house of Israel, "Seek R137 Me that R138 you may live. 5 "But do not resort F49 to Bethel R139 And do not come to Gilgal, R140 Nor cross over to Beersheba; R141 For Gilgal will certainly go into captivity And Bethel will come F50 to trouble. 6 "Seek R142 the LORD that you may live, Or He will break forth like a fire, R143 O F51 house of Joseph, And it will consume with none to quench it for Bethel, 7 For those who turn justice R144 into wormwood And cast F52 righteousness down to the earth." 8 He who made the Pleiades R145 and Orion And changes R146 deep darkness into morning, Who F53 also darkens R147 day into night, Who calls R148 for the waters of the sea And pours them out on the surface of the earth, The LORD is His name. 9 It is He who flashes R150 forth with destruction upon the strong, So that destruction R151 comes upon the fortress. 10 They hate him who reproves R152 in the gate, F54 And they abhor R153 him who speaks with integrity. 11 Therefore because you impose F55 heavy rent on the poor And exact a tribute of grain from them, Though you have built houses R154 of well-hewn stone, Yet you will not live in them; You have planted pleasant vineyards, yet you will not R155 drink their wine. 12 For I know your transgressions are many and your sins are great, You who distress R156 the righteous and accept bribes And turn F56 aside the poor in the gate. F57 13 Therefore at such F58 a time the prudent person keeps R157 silent, for it is an evil time. 14 Seek good and not evil, that you may live; And thus may the LORD God of hosts be with you, Just R158 as you have said! 15 Hate R159 evil, love good, And establish justice in the gate! F59 Perhaps the LORD God of hosts May R160 be gracious to the remnant R161 of Joseph.

F49 Lit seek
F50 Or become iniquity
F51 Or in the house
F52 Lit they have put down
F53 Lit And He darkened
F54 I.e. the place where court was held
F55 Another reading is trample upon
F56 Lit they turn
F57 I.e. the place where court was held
F58 Lit that time
F59 I.e. the place where court was held
