each one straight ahead;
and you shall be cast out into Harmon,”

your tithes every three days;

one field would have rain,

to drink water, and would not be satisfied;
yet you did not return to me,”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 4:11 - “I overthrew some of you,
as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
and you were as a brand[fn] plucked out of the burning;
yet you did not return to me,”
declares the LORD.

because I will do this to you,
prepare to meet your God, O Israel!”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 4:13 - For behold, he who forms the mountains and creates the wind,
and declares to man what is his thought,
who makes the morning darkness,
and treads on the heights of the earth—
the LORD, the God of hosts, is his name!
