Amos Chapter 5

- , -- . 1 Hear ye this word which I take up for a lamentation over you, O house of Israel:
- , ; -, . 2 The virgin of Israel is fallen, she shall no more rise; she is cast down upon her land, there is none to raise her up.
, ; , . 3 For thus saith the Lord GOD: The city that went forth a thousand shall have a hundred left, and that which went forth a hundred shall have ten left, of the house of Israel.
, : , . 4 For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel: Seek ye Me, and live;
-, -, , : , - . 5 But seek not Beth-el, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beer-sheba; for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Beth-el shall come to nought.
-, : - , - -. 6 Seek the LORD, and live--lest He break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and it devour, and there be none to quench it in Bethel--
, ; , . 7 Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and cast righteousness to the ground;
, , , ; -, - -- . 8 Him that maketh the Pleiades and Orion, and bringeth on the shadow of death in the morning, and darkeneth the day into night; that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth; the LORD is His name;
, -; , - . 9 That causeth destruction to flash upon the strong, so that destruction cometh upon the fortress.
, ; , . 10 They hate him that reproveth in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.
-, - -- , - ; - , -. 11 Therefore, because ye trample upon the poor, and take from him exactions of wheat; ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them, ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine thereof.
, ; , . 12 For I know how manifold are your transgressions, and how mighty are your sins; ye that afflict the just, that take a ransom, and that turn aside the needy in the gate.
, --: , . 13 Therefore the prudent doth keep silence in such a time; for it is an evil time.
- -, ; - -, -- . 14 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live; and so the LORD, the God of hosts, will be with you, as ye say.
- , ; , --- . {} 15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish justice in the gate; it may be that the LORD, the God of hosts, will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph. {S}
- , , - , - -; -, - . 16 Therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord: Lamentation shall be in all the broad places, and they shall say in all the streets: 'Alas! alas!' and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and proclaim lamentation to such as are skilful of wailing.
-, : - , . {} 17 And in all vineyards shall be lamentation; for I will pass through the midst of thee, saith the LORD. {P}
, - : - , - -. 18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! Wherefore would ye have the day of the LORD? It is darkness, and not light.
, ; -- -, . 19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; and went into the house and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
- , -; , - . 20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, and no brightness in it?
, ; , . 21 I hate, I despise your feasts, and I will take no delight in your solemn assemblies.
-- , ; , . 22 Yea, though ye offer me burnt-offerings and your meal-offerings, I will not accept them; neither will I regard the peace-offerings of your fat beasts.
, ; , . 23 Take thou away from Me the noise of thy songs; and let Me not hear the melody of thy psalteries.
, ; , . 24 But let justice well up as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
- , -- . 25 Did ye bring unto Me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?
, , , --, , , . 26 So shall ye take up Siccuth your king and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.
, : -, . {} 27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith He, whose name is the LORD God of hosts. {P}
