Amos 5

ECB(i) 1
Hear this word I lift against you! A lamentation, O house of Yisra El. 2 The virgin of Yisra El - fallen; she adds not to rise: forsaken on her soil she has no one to raise her up. 3 For thus says Adonay Yah Veh: The city that comes by a thousand leaves a hundred; and that which comes by a hundred leaves ten to the house of Yisra El. 4 For thus says Yah Veh to the house of Yisra El: Seek me, and live: 5 neither seek Beth El nor enter Gilgal nor pass through Beer Sheba: for in exiling, Gilgal is exiled, and Beth El becomes for mischief. 6 Seek Yah Veh, and live; lest he prospers as fire in the house of Yoseph and consumes; and no one in Beth El to quench it. 7 You who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off justness in the earth, 8 seek him who works Kimah and Kesil and turns the shadow of death into the morning and makes the day dark with night: who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them on the face of the earth: Yah Veh is his name: 9 - who releases the ravaged against the strong, so that the ravaged come against the fortress. 10 They hate him who reproves in the portal and they abhor him who words integriously: 11 so because you trample on the poor and take his burdens of grain; you build houses of hewn stone, and you settle not therein; you plant vineyards of desire, and you drink not their wine. 12 For I know your great rebellions and your mighty sins: they tribulate the just; they take a koper/atonement; and they pervert the needy in the portal. 13 So, in that time, the comprehending keep still; for it is an evil time. 14 Seek good, and not evil, so that you live: and so be it, as you say, Yah Veh Elohim Sabaoth is with you. 15 Hate the evil and love the good and set judgment in the portal: perhaps Yah Veh Elohim Sabaoth grants charism to the survivors of Yoseph. 16
So, thus says Yah Veh Elohim Sabaoth Adonay: Chopping is in all streets; and in all the outways, they say, Hah! Hah! and they call the cultivator to mourning and such as know lamentation to chopping: 17 and in all vineyards, chopping: for I pass midst you, says Yah Veh. 18 Ho to you who desire the day of Yah Veh! To what end is it for you? The day of Yah Veh is darkness, and not light 19 - as a man flees the face of a lion and a bear meets him; or goes into the house and props his hand on the wall and a serpent bites him: 20 Is not the day of Yah Veh darkness and not light? - even very dark with no brilliance therein? 21 I hate, I spurn your celebrations, and I scent not your private assemblies. 22 Though you holocaust your holocausts and offerings to me, I am neither pleased nor scan I the shelamim of your fatlings: 23 turn aside the roar of your songs from me for I hear not the psalm of your bagpipes: 24 and judgment rolls as waters and justness as a perennial wadi. 25 Brought you near to me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years O house of Yisra El? 26 Yes, you bore the sukkoth/brush arbor of your sovereign and Kiun, the star of your elohim, the images you worked to yourselves. 27 So I exile you beyond Dammeseq, says Yah Veh, whose name is Elohim Sabaoth.
