Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:12 - Shall horses run upon the rock? will one plow there with oxen? that ye have turned justice into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood;

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:13 - ye that rejoice in a thing of nought, that say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength?
