Amos

Rotherham(i) 1 The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa,—of which (words) he had vision concerning Israel, in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the earthquake. 2 So then he said—Yahweh, out of Zion, will roar, and, out of Jerusalem, will utter his voice,—and the pastures of the shepherds, shall mourn, and the top of Carmel, be dried up. 3 Thus, saith Yahweh, Because of three transgressions of Damascus, and because of four, will I not turn it back,—Because, with threshing instruments of iron, they have threshed Gilead. 4 Therefore will send a fire, into the house of Hazael,—which shall devour the palaces of Ben- hadad; 5 And I will break the bolt of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant out of the plain of Aven, and the holder of the sceptre out of the house of Eden,—and the people of Syria, shall be exiled, unto Kir, saith Yahweh. 6 Thus, saith Yahweh, Because of three transgressions of Gaza, and because of four, will I not turn it back,—Because of their taking into exile the whole body of exiles, to deliver to Edom, 7 Therefore will I send a fire upon the wall of Gaza,—which shall devour the palaces thereof; 8 And I will cut off the inhabitant out of Ashdod, and the holder of the sceptre out of Ashkelon,—and will turn my hand against Ekron, So shall perish the remnant of the Philistines, saith My Lord, Yahweh. 9 Thus, saith Yahweh, Because of three transgressions of Tyre, and because of four, will I not turn it back,—Because of their delivering up the whole body of exiles to Edom, and they remembered not the brotherly covenant, 10 Therefore will I send a fire upon the wall of Tyre,—which shall devour the palaces thereof. 11 Thus, saith Yahweh, Because of three transgressions of Edom, and because of four, will I not turn it back,—Because he pursued, with the sword, his brother, and stifled his compassions, and his anger tare in pieces evermore, and, his indignation, kept watch perpetually, 12 Therefore will I send a fire into Teman,—which shall devour the palaces of Bozrah. 13 Thus, saith Yahweh, Because of three transgressions of the sons of Ammon, and because of four, will I not turn it back,—Because of their ripping up the pregnant women of Gilead, that they might enlarge their own boundary, 14 Therefore will I kindle a fire upon the wall of Rabbah, which shall devour the palaces thereof,—with a war-cry in the day of battle, with tempest in the day of storm-wind; 15 And Milcom shall go into exile,—he and his rulers together, saith Yahweh.
