Amos 1


1:1 The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which
 he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah,
 and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel,
 two years before the earthquake.
1:2 And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his
 voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds
 shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.
1:3 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus,
 and for four, I will not turn away its [punishment]; because
 they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron:
1:4 But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall
 devour the palaces of Ben-hadad.
1:5 I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the
 inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the
 scepter from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall
 go into captivity to Kir, saith the LORD.
1:6 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Gaza, and
 for four, I will not turn away its [punishment]: because they
 carried away captive the whole captivity, to deliver [them] up
 to Edom:
1:7 But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall
 devour its palaces:
1:8 And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that
 holdeth the scepter from Ashkelon, and I will turn my hand
 against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish,
 saith the Lord GOD.
1:9 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyre, and
 for four, I will not turn away its [punishment]: because they
 delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, and remembered not
 the brotherly covenant:
1:10 But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyre, which shall
 devour its palaces:
1:11 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and
 for four, I will not turn away its [punishment]: because he
 pursued his brother with the sword, and cast off all pity, and
 his anger did tear perpetually, and [he] kept his wrath for
 ever:
1:12 But I will send a fire upon Teman, which shall devour the
 palaces of Bozrah.
1:13 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the
 children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away [their
 punishment]: because they have ripped up the women with child
 of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:
1:14 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it
 shall devour its palaces, with shouting in the day of battle,
 with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind:
1:15 And their king shall go into captivity, he and his princes
 together, saith the LORD.
