Amos 7

ECB(i) 1
Thus Adonay Yah Veh shows me; and behold, he forms grubbers in the beginning of the ascending of the after growth; and behold, it is the latter growth after the shearings of the sovereign. 2 And so be it, they finish eating the herbage of the land, and I say, Adonay Yah Veh, forgive, I beseech you: How rises Yaaqov? For he is small. 3 Yah Veh sighs for this: So be it not, says Yah Veh. 4 Thus Adonay Yah Veh shows me: and behold, Adonay Yah Veh calls to contend by fire; and it consumes the great abyss and eats an allotment. 5 And I say, O Adonay Yah Veh, cease, I beseech you: How rises Yaaqov? For he is small. 6 Yah Veh sighs for this also: So be it not, says Adonay Yah Veh. 7 Thus he has me see: and behold, Adonay stations a plumb line on a wall and a plumb line in his hand. 8 And Yah Veh says to me, Amos, what see you? And I say, A plumbline. Then Yah Veh Adonay says, Behold, I set a plumbline among my people Yisra El: I add not to pass by them any more: 9 and I desolate the bamahs of Yischaq and parch the holies of Yisra El; and I rise against the house of Yarob Am with the sword. 10 And Amas Yah the priest of Beth El sends to Yarob Am sovereign of Yisra El, saying, Amos conspires against you among the house of Yisra El: the land is not able to contain all his words. 11 For Amos says thus: Yarob Am dies by the sword, and in exiling, Yisra El is exiled from their own soil. 12 Also Amas Yah says to Amos, O you seer, go, flee into the land of Yah Hudah, and there eat bread, and there prophesy: 13 and add not to prophesy any more at Beth El: for it is the holies of the sovereigndom and it is the house of the sovereign. 14 Then Amos answers and says to Amas Yah, I am neither a prophet nor a son of a prophet; but I am a herdman and a pincher of sycomores: 15 and as I follow the flock, Yah Veh takes me and Yah Veh says to me, Go, prophesy to my people Yisra El. 16 And now, hear the word of Yah Veh: You say, Neither prophesy against Yisra El nor drip against the house of Yischaq. 17 So Yah Veh says thus: Your woman whores in the city and your sons and your daughters fall by the sword and your soil is allotted by line; and you die in a foul soil: and in exiling, Yisra El is exiled from his soil.
