Woe to the Complacent

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:1 -

Woe to those who are at ease in Zion

and to those who feel secure on the hill of Samaria —

the notable people in this first of the nations,

those the house of Israel comes to.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:2 -

Cross over to Calneh and see;

go from there to great Hamath;

then go down to Gath of the Philistines.

Are you better than these kingdoms?

Is their territory larger than yours?

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:3 -

You dismiss any thought of the evil day

and bring in a reign of violence.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:4 -

They lie on beds inlaid with ivory,

sprawled out on their couches,

and dine on lambs from the flock

and calves from the stall.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:5 -

They improvise songs[fn] to the sound of the harp

and invent[fn] their own musical instruments like David.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:6 -

They drink wine by the bowlful

and anoint themselves with the finest oils

but do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:7 -

Therefore, they will now go into exile

as the first of the captives,

and the feasting of those who sprawl out

will come to an end.

Israel’s Pride Judged

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:8 -

The Lord GOD has sworn by himself ​— ​this is the declaration of the LORD, the God of Armies:

I loathe Jacob’s pride

and hate his citadels,

so I will hand over the city and everything in it.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:9 -

And if there are ten men left in one house, they will die.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:10 -

A close relative[fn] and burner[fn] will remove his corpse[fn] from the house. He will call to someone in the inner recesses of the house, “Any more with you? ”

That person will reply, “None.”

Then he will say, “Silence, because the LORD’s name must not be invoked.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:11 -

For the LORD commands:

The large house will be smashed to pieces,

and the small house to rubble.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:12 -

Do horses gallop on the cliffs?

Does anyone plow there with oxen?[fn]

Yet you have turned justice into poison

and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood —

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:13 -

you who rejoice over Lo-debar

and say, “Didn’t we capture Karnaim

for ourselves by our own strength? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 6:14 -

But look, I am raising up a nation

against you, house of Israel —

this is the declaration of the Lord,

the GOD of Armies —

and they will oppress you

from the entrance of Hamath[fn]

to the Brook of the Arabah.[fn]

A burner of incense, a memorial fire, or a body; Hb obscure
Lit remove bones
Some emend to plow the sea
Or from Lebo-hamath
