Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:13 - Behold, I will press you in your place, as a cart presseth that is full of sheaves.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:14 - And flight shall perish from the swift; and the strong shall not strengthen his force; neither shall the mighty deliver himself;

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:15 - neither shall he stand that handleth the bow; and he that is swift of foot shall not deliver himself; neither shall he that rideth the horse deliver himself;

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:16 - and he that is courageous among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day, saith Jehovah.
