Therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 3:3 - Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 3:4 - Will a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey?
Will a young lion cry out of his den, if he has caught nothing?

Will a snare spring up from the earth, if it has caught nothing at all?

Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 3:9 - “Proclaim in the palaces at Ashdod,[fn]
And in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say:
‘Assemble on the mountains of Samaria;
See great tumults in her midst,
And the oppressed within her.

Says the LORD,
‘Who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.’ ”

“An adversary shall be all around the land;
He shall sap your strength from you,
And your palaces shall be plundered.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 3:12 - Thus says the LORD:

“As a shepherd takes from the mouth of a lion
Two legs or a piece of an ear,
So shall the children of Israel be taken out
Who dwell in Samaria—
In the corner of a bed and on the edge[fn] of a couch!

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 3:13 - Hear and testify against the house of Jacob,”
Says the Lord GOD, the God of hosts,

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 3:14 - “That in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions,
I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel;
And the horns of the altar shall be cut off
And fall to the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 3:15 - I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house;
The houses of ivory shall perish,
And the great houses shall have an end,”
Says the LORD.
