Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:1 - Thus did Jehovah shew unto me; and behold, a basket of summer-fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:2 - And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer-fruit. And Jehovah said unto me, The end is come upon my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:3 - And the songs of the palace shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord Jehovah. The dead bodies shall be many; in every place they shall be cast forth. Silence!

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:4 - Hear this, ye that pant after the needy, even to cause to fail the poor of the land,

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:5 - saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat? making the ephah small and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances for deceit:

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:6 - that we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; and that we may sell the refuse of the wheat.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:7 - Jehovah hath sworn by the glory of Jacob, Certainly I will never forget any of their works.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:8 - Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? And it shall wholly rise up like the Nile; and it shall surge and sink down, as the river of Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:9 - And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord Jehovah, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the land in the clear day.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:10 - And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning for an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:11 - Behold, days come, saith the Lord Jehovah, when I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of Jehovah.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:12 - And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north to the east; they shall run to and fro to seek the word of Jehovah, and shall not find it.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:13 - In that day shall the fair virgins and the young men faint for thirst;

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:14 - they that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, As thy god, O Dan, liveth! and, As the way of Beer-sheba liveth! even they shall fall, and never rise up again.
