Amos 2 ©
God's judgments upon Moab, upon Judah, and upon Israel. God complaineth of Israel's ingratitude for past kindnesses, and threateneth them for it.
¶Thus saith the LORD; fFor three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have gdespised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their hlies caused them to err, iafter the which their fathers have walked:
lThat pant after mthe dust of the earth on the head of the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: nand a man and his father will go in unto the same 1maid, oto profane my holy name:
¶Yet rdestroyed I the sAmorite before them, whose theight was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed uhis fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.
Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow; and he that is swift of foot shall not deliver himself: neither shall he that rideth the horse deliver himself.
