Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:5 - saying,
“When will the new moon [fn]be over,
So that we may sell grain,
And the sabbath, that we may open the wheat market,
To make the [fn]bushel smaller and the shekel bigger,
And to cheat with [fn]dishonest scales,

And the needy for a pair of sandals,
And that we may sell the refuse of the wheat?”

And all your songs into [fn]lamentation;
And I will bring sackcloth on everyone’s loins
And baldness on every head.
And I will make it like a time of mourning for an only son,
And the end of it will be like a bitter day.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 8:11 - “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD,
“When I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water,
But rather for hearing the words of the LORD.

And from the north even to the east;
They will go to and fro to seek the word of the LORD,
But they will not find it.

And the young men will faint from thirst.

Who say, ‘As your god lives, O Dan,’
And, ‘As the way of Beersheba lives,’
They will fall and not rise again.”
