The Destruction of Israel

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:1 - I saw the Lord standing beside[fn] the altar, and he said:
“Strike the capitals until the thresholds shake,
and shatter them on the heads of all the people;[fn]
and those who are left of them I will kill with the sword;
not one of them shall flee away;
not one of them shall escape.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:2 - “If they dig into Sheol,
from there shall my hand take them;
if they climb up to heaven,
from there I will bring them down.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:3 - If they hide themselves on the top of Carmel,
from there I will search them out and take them;
and if they hide from my sight at the bottom of the sea,
there I will command the serpent, and it shall bite them.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:4 - And if they go into captivity before their enemies,
there I will command the sword, and it shall kill them;
and I will fix my eyes upon them
for evil and not for good.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:5 - The Lord GOD of hosts,
he who touches the earth and it melts,
and all who dwell in it mourn,
and all of it rises like the Nile,
and sinks again, like the Nile of Egypt;

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:6 - who builds his upper chambers in the heavens
and founds his vault upon the earth;
who calls for the waters of the sea
and pours them out upon the surface of the earth—
the LORD is his name.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:7 - “Are you not like the Cushites to me,
O people of Israel?” declares the LORD.
“Did I not bring up Israel from the land of Egypt,
and the Philistines from Caphtor and the Syrians from Kir?

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:8 - Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom,
and I will destroy it from the surface of the ground,
except that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,”
declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:9 - “For behold, I will command,
and shake the house of Israel among all the nations
as one shakes with a sieve,
but no pebble shall fall to the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:10 - All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword,
who say, ‘Disaster shall not overtake or meet us.’

The Restoration of Israel

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:11 - “In that day I will raise up
the booth of David that is fallen
and repair its breaches,
and raise up its ruins
and rebuild it as in the days of old,

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:12 - that they may possess the remnant of Edom
and all the nations who are called by my name,”[fn]
declares the LORD who does this.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:13 - “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD,
“when the plowman shall overtake the reaper
and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed;
the mountains shall drip sweet wine,
and all the hills shall flow with it.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:14 - I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel,
and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them;
they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine,
and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 9:15 - I will plant them on their land,
and they shall never again be uprooted
out of the land that I have given them,”
says the LORD your God.
