Amos 8 ©
By a basket of summer fruit is shewed the near approach of Israel's end. Their oppression of the poor shall cause their joy to be turned into mourning. A famine of God's word threatened.
Saying, gWhen will the new 3moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the hsabbath, that we may 4set forth wheat, imaking the ephah small, and the shekel great, and 5falsifying the balances by deceit?
And I will turn your pfeasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and qI will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and rbaldness upon every head; and I will make it sas the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
