strkjv@Amos:4:1 @ Hear this word, ye kine of Bashan, that are in the mountain of Samaria, which oppress the poor, which crush the needy, which say to their masters, Bring, and let us drink.
strkjv@Amos:4:2 @ The Lord GOD Y@hovih# hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you, that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks duwgah# .

strkjv@Amos:4:4 @ Come to Bethel Beyth-#El#, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years:
strkjv@Amos:4:5 @ And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith n@#um# the Lord GOD Y@hovih#.
strkjv@Amos:4:6 @ And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith n@#um# the LORD Y@hovah#.
strkjv@Amos:4:7 @ And also I have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.

strkjv@Amos:4:11 @ I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom C@dom# and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith n@#um# the LORD Y@hovah#.

kjv@Amos:4 > > RandyP : All of this and yet 'ye have not returned to me'. Sure there is the attempt at worship, the attempt at sacrifice, but, this religion is hollow and puffed and idolatrous. Bethel was one of the two temples of the golden calf. Gilgal (there were a couple) was either a religious landmark of the 12 stones by the Jordan or a school of prophets. They are called kine of Bashan (cows from east of the Jordan) and the calf that they worship at supposedly symbolic of Jehovah as a replacement for having to go into Jerusalem. Nothing God has done to this point has worked. They are told to prepare to meet their God.
