Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:1 - Thus the Lord [fn]GOD showed me, and behold, He was forming a locust-swarm [fn]when the spring crop began to sprout. And behold, the spring crop was after the king’s [fn]mowing.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:2 - And it came about, [fn]when it had finished eating the vegetation of the land, that I said,
“Lord GOD, please pardon!
[fn]How can Jacob stand,
For he is small?”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:3 - The LORD [fn]changed His mind about this.
“It shall not be,” said the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:4 - Thus the Lord GOD showed me, and behold, the Lord GOD was calling to contend with them by fire, and it consumed the great deep and began to consume the [fn]farm land.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:5 - Then I said,
“Lord GOD, please stop!
How can Jacob stand, for he is small?”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:6 - The LORD [fn]changed His mind about this.
“This too shall not be,” said the Lord GOD.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:7 - Thus He showed me, and behold, the Lord was standing [fn]by a [fn]vertical wall with a plumb line in His hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:8 - The LORD said to me, “What do you see, Amos?” And I said, “A plumb line.” Then the Lord said,
“Behold I am about to put a plumb line
In the midst of My people Israel.
I will [fn]spare them no longer.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:9 - “The high places of Isaac will be desolated
And the sanctuaries of Israel laid waste.
Then I will rise up against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:10 - Then Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, sent word to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, “Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel; the land is unable to endure all his words.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:11 - “For thus Amos says, ‘Jeroboam will die by the sword and Israel will certainly go from its land into exile.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:12 - Then Amaziah said to Amos, “Go, you seer, flee away to the land of Judah and there eat bread and there do your prophesying!

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:13 - “But no longer prophesy at Bethel, for it is a sanctuary of the king and a royal [fn]residence.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:14 - Then Amos replied to Amaziah, “I am not a prophet, nor am I the son of a prophet; for I am a herdsman and a [fn]grower of sycamore figs.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:15 - “But the LORD took me from [fn]following the flock and the LORD said to me, ‘Go prophesy to My people Israel.’

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:16 - “Now hear the word of the LORD: you are saying, ‘You shall not prophesy against Israel nor shall you [fn]speak against the house of Isaac.’

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 7:17 - “Therefore, thus says the LORD, ‘Your wife will become a harlot in the city, your sons and your daughters will fall by the sword, your land will be parceled up by a measuring line and you yourself will die [fn]upon unclean soil. Moreover, Israel will certainly go from its land into exile.’”
