Amos 2


2:1 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Moab, and
 for four, I will not turn away [his punishment]: because he
 burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime:
2:2 But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the
 palaces of Kirioth: and Moab shall die with tumult, with
 shouting, [and] with the sound of the trumpet:
2:3 And I will cut off the judge from the midst of it, and will
 slay all its princes with him, saith the LORD.
2:4 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and
 for four, I will not turn away [their punishment]: because they
 have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his
 commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after which
 their fathers have walked:
2:5 But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the
 palaces of Jerusalem.
2:6 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and
 for four, I will not turn away [their punishment]: because they
 sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of
 shoes;
2:7 That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of the
 poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: and a man and his
 father will go in to the [same] maid, to profane my holy name:
2:8 And they lay [themselves] down upon clothes laid to pledge
 by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned [in]
 the house of their god.
2:9 Yet I destroyed the Amorite before them, whose hight [was]
 like the hight of the cedars, and he [was] strong as the oaks;
 yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from
 beneath.
2:10 Also I brought you from the land of Egypt, and led you
 forty years through the wilderness, to possess the land of the
 Amorite.
2:11 And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your
 young men for Nazarites. [Is it] not even thus, O ye children
 of Israel? saith the LORD.
2:12 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; and commanded the
 prophets, saying, Prophesy not.
2:13 Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart is pressed [that
 is] full of sheaves.
2:14 Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift, and the
 strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shall the mighty
 deliver himself:
2:15 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.
2:16 And [he that is] courageous among the mighty shall flee
 away naked in that day, saith the LORD.
