Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:1 - This is what the LORD says:
“The people of Moab have sinned again and again,[fn]
and I will not let them go unpunished!
They desecrated the bones of Edom’s king,
burning them to ashes.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:2 - So I will send down fire on the land of Moab,
and all the fortresses in Kerioth will be destroyed.
The people will fall in the noise of battle,
as the warriors shout and the ram’s horn sounds.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:3 - And I will destroy their king
and slaughter all their princes,”
says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:4 - This is what the LORD says:
“The people of Judah have sinned again and again,
and I will not let them go unpunished!
They have rejected the instruction of the LORD,
refusing to obey his decrees.
They have been led astray by the same lies
that deceived their ancestors.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:5 - So I will send down fire on Judah,
and all the fortresses of Jerusalem will be destroyed.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:6 - This is what the LORD says:
“The people of Israel have sinned again and again,
and I will not let them go unpunished!
They sell honorable people for silver
and poor people for a pair of sandals.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:7 - They trample helpless people in the dust
and shove the oppressed out of the way.
Both father and son sleep with the same woman,
corrupting my holy name.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:8 - At their religious festivals,
they lounge in clothing their debtors put up as security.
In the house of their gods,[fn]
they drink wine bought with unjust fines.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:9 - “But as my people watched,
I destroyed the Amorites,
though they were as tall as cedars
and as strong as oaks.
I destroyed the fruit on their branches
and dug out their roots.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:10 - It was I who rescued you from Egypt
and led you through the desert for forty years,
so you could possess the land of the Amorites.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:11 - I chose some of your sons to be prophets
and others to be Nazirites.
Can you deny this, my people of Israel?”
asks the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:12 - “But you caused the Nazirites to sin by making them drink wine,
and you commanded the prophets, ‘Shut up!’

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:13 - “So I will make you groan
like a wagon loaded down with sheaves of grain.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:14 - Your fastest runners will not get away.
The strongest among you will become weak.
Even mighty warriors will be unable to save themselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:15 - The archers will not stand their ground.
The swiftest runners won’t be fast enough to escape.
Even those riding horses won’t be able to save themselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 2:16 - On that day the most courageous of your fighting men
will drop their weapons and run for their lives,”
says the LORD.
NLT Footnotes
Hebrew have committed three sins, even four; also in 2:4, 6.
