Amos 3 ©
The necessity of God's judgment against Israel: the publication of it, with the causes thereof.
gWill a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion 2cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?
¶pPublish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say, Assemble yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria, and qbehold the great tumults in the midst thereof, and the 5oppressed in the midst thereof.
Thus saith the LORD; vAs the shepherd 7taketh out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear; wso shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus 8in a couch.
