Amos 4 ©
Israel reproved for oppression, for idolatry, and for their incorrigibleness.
HEAR this word, ye a*kine of Bashan, that are in the bmountain of Samaria, which coppress the poor, which crush the needy, which dsay to their masters, Bring, and let us drink.
And also oI have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and pI 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.
wI have sent among you the pestilence 6after the manner of Egypt: xyour young men have I slain with the sword, 7and have taken away your horses; and yI have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew zSodom and Gomorrah, and ye were aas a firebrand plucked out of the burning: byet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
For, lo, ehe that formeth the mountains, and createth the 8wind, and fdeclareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning gdarkness, and htreadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The iGod of hosts, is his name.
