Warning Visions

“O Lord GOD, please forgive!
How can Jacob stand?
He is so small!”

“It shall not be,” said the LORD.

He is so small!”

“Behold, I am setting a plumb line
in the midst of my people Israel;
I will never again pass by them;

and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste,
and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.”

Amos Accused

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:10 - Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, “Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel. The land is not able to bear all his words.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:11 - For thus Amos has said,
“‘Jeroboam shall die by the sword,
and Israel must go into exile
away from his land.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:12 - And Amaziah said to Amos, “O seer, go, flee away to the land of Judah, and eat bread there, and prophesy there,

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:13 - but never again prophesy at Bethel, for it is the king’s sanctuary, and it is a temple of the kingdom.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:14 - Then Amos answered and said to Amaziah, “I was[fn] no prophet, nor a prophet’s son, but I was a herdsman and a dresser of sycamore figs.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:16 - Now therefore hear the word of the LORD.
“You say, ‘Do not prophesy against Israel,
and do not preach against the house of Isaac.’

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:17 - Therefore thus says the LORD:
“‘Your wife shall be a prostitute in the city,
and your sons and your daughters shall fall by the sword,
and your land shall be divided up with a measuring line;
you yourself shall die in an unclean land,
and Israel shall surely go into exile away from its land.’”
