strkjv@Amos:7:1 @ Thus hath the Lord GOD Y@hovih# shewed unto me; and, behold, he formed grasshoppers in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and, lo, it was the latter growth after the kings mowings.
strkjv@Amos:7:2 @ And it came to pass, that when they had made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said, O Lord GOD Y@hovih#, forgive, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
strkjv@Amos:7:3 @ The LORD Y@hovah# repented for this: It shall not be, saith the LORD Y@hovah#.
strkjv@Amos:7:4 @ Thus hath the Lord GOD Y@hovih# shewed unto me: and, behold, the Lord GOD Y@hovih# called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part.
strkjv@Amos:7:5 @ Then said I, O Lord GOD Y@hovih#, cease, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
strkjv@Amos:7:6 @ The LORD Y@hovah# repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord GOD Y@hovih#.
strkjv@Amos:7:7 @ Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.
strkjv@Amos:7:8 @ And the LORD Y@hovah# said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more:
strkjv@Amos:7:9 @ And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.
strkjv@Amos:7:10 @ Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel Beyth-#El# sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his words.
strkjv@Amos:7:11 @ For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.
strkjv@Amos:7:12 @ Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah Y@huwdah#, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:
strkjv@Amos:7:13 @ But prophesy not again any more at Bethel Beyth-#El#: for it is the kings chapel, and it is the kings court.
strkjv@Amos:7:14 @ Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophets son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:
strkjv@Amos:7:15 @ And the LORD Y@hovah# took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD Y@hovah# said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.
strkjv@Amos:7:16 @ Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD Y@hovah#: Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac.
strkjv@Amos:7:17 @ Therefore thus saith the LORD Y@hovah#; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.
