Your servant Moses, Your people Israel,
and prophets of truth and righteousness.

`Amos 2:6-3:8

2:6Thus says the LORD:

 "For three transgressions of Yisra'el, yes, for four,
      I will not turn away its punishment;
      Because they have sold the righteous for silver,
      And the needy for a pair of shoes;
      
2:7They trample on the dust of the earth on the head of the poor,
      And deny justice to the oppressed;
      And a man and his father use the same maiden, to profane my holy name;
      
2:8And they lay themselves down beside every altar on clothes taken in pledge;
      And in the house of their God they drink the wine of those who have been fined.

 2:9Yet I destroyed the Amori before them,
      Whose height was like the height of the cedars,
      And he was strong as the oaks;
      Yet I destroyed his fruit from above,
      and his roots from beneath.

 2:10Also I brought you up out of the land of Egypt,
      And led you forty years in the wilderness,
      To possess the land of the Amori.

 2:11I raised up some of your sons for prophets,
      And some of your young men for Nazirim.

 Isn't this true,
      You children of Yisra'el?" says the LORD.

 2:12"But you gave the Nazirim wine to drink,
      And commanded the prophets, saying, 'Don't prophesy!'

 2:13Behold, I will crush you in your place,
      As a cart crushes that is full of grain.

 2:14Flight will perish from the swift;
      And the strong won't strengthen his force;
      Neither shall the mighty deliver himself;
      
2:15Neither shall he stand who handles the bow;
      And he who is swift of foot won't escape;
      Neither shall he who rides the horse deliver himself;

 2:16And he who is courageous among the mighty will flee away naked in that day,"
      says the LORD.

3:1Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, children of Yisra'el, against the whole family which I brought up out of the land of Egypt, saying:

 3:2"You only have I chosen of all the families of the earth.
      Therefore I will punish you for all of your sins."

 3:3Do two walk together,
      Unless they have agreed?

 3:4Will a lion roar in the thicket,
      When he has no prey?

 Does a young lion cry out of his den,
      If he has caught nothing?

 3:5Can a bird fall in a trap on the earth,
      Where no snare is set for him?

 Does a snare spring up from the ground,
      When there is nothing to catch?

 3:6Does the shofar alarm sound in a city,
      Without the people being afraid?

 Does evil happen to a city,
      And the LORD hasn't done it?

 3:7Surely the Lord God will do nothing,
      Unless he reveals his secret to his servants the prophets.

 3:8The lion has roared.
      Who will not fear?

 The Lord God has spoken.
      Who can but prophesy?
