Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:3 - For thus said the Lord Jehovah: The city that is going out a thousand, Doth leave an hundred, And that which is going out an hundred, Doth leave ten to the house of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:4 - For thus said Jehovah to the house of Israel: Seek ye Me, and live,

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:5 - And seek not Beth-El, and Gilgal enter not, And Beer-Sheba pass not through, For Gilgal doth utterly remove, And Beth-El doth become vanity.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:6 - Seek ye Jehovah, and live, Lest He prosper as fire against the house of Joseph, And it hath consumed, And there is no quencher for Beth-El.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:7 - Ye who are turning to wormwood judgment, And righteousness to the earth have put down,

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:8 - The maker of Kimah and Kesil, And the turner to morning of death-shade, And day as night He hath made dark, Who is calling to the waters of the sea, And poureth them on the face of the earth, Jehovah is His name;

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:9 - Who is brightening up the spoiled against the strong, And the spoiled against a fortress cometh.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:10 - They have hated a reprover in the gate, And a plain speaker they abominate.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:11 - Therefore, because of your trampling on the poor, And the tribute of corn ye take from him, Houses of hewn work ye have built, And ye do not dwell in them, Desirable vineyards ye have planted, And ye do not drink their wine.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:12 - For I have known -- many are your transgressions, And mighty your sins, Adversaries of the righteous, taking ransoms, And the needy in the gate ye turned aside.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:13 - Therefore is the wise at that time silent, For an evil time it is.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:14 - Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live, And it is so; Jehovah, God of Hosts, is with you, as ye said.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:15 - Hate evil, and love good, And set up judgment in the gate, It may be Jehovah, God of Hosts, doth pity the remnant of Joseph.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:16 - Therefore, thus said Jehovah, God of Hosts, the Lord, In all broad places is lamentation, And in all out-places they say, 'Alas, alas,' And called the husbandman to mourning, And to lamentation the skilful of wailing.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:17 - And in all vineyards is lamentation, For I pass into thy midst, said Jehovah.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:18 - Ho, ye who are desiring the day of Jehovah, Why is this to you -- the day of Jehovah? It is darkness, and not light,

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:19 - As when one fleeth from the face of the lion, And the bear hath met him, And he hath come in to the house, And hath leant his hand on the wall, And the serpent hath bitten him.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:20 - Is not the day of Jehovah darkness and not light, Even thick darkness that hath no brightness?

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:21 - I have hated -- I have loathed your festivals, And I am not refreshed by your restraints.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:22 - For though ye cause burnt-offerings and your presents to ascend to Me, I am not pleased, And the peace-offering of your fatlings I behold not.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:23 - Turn aside from Me the noise of thy songs, Yea, the praise of thy psaltery I hear not.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:24 - And roll on as waters doth judgment, And righteousness as a perennial stream.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:25 - Sacrifices and offering did ye bring nigh to Me, In a wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:26 - And ye bare Succoth your king, and Chiun your images, The star of your god, that ye made for yourselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxAmo 5:27 - And I removed you beyond Damascus, Said Jehovah, God of Hosts is His name.
