Amos 4


4:1 Hear this word, ye heifers of Bashan, that [are] in the
 mountain of Samaria, which oppress the poor, which crush the
 needy, which say to their masters, Bring, and let us drink.
4:2 The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that lo, the days
 shall come upon you, that he will take you away with hooks, and
 your posterity with fish-hooks,
4:3 And ye shall go out at the breaches, every [cow at that
 which is] before her; and ye shall cast [them] into the palace,
 saith the LORD.
4:4 Come to Beth-el and transgress; at Gilgal multiply
 transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, [and]
 your tithes after three years:
4:5 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and
 proclaim [and] publish the free-offerings: for this pleaseth
 you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
4:6 And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your
 cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not
 returned to me, saith the LORD.
4:7 And also I have withheld the rain from you, when [there
 were] yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain
 upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one
 piece was rained upon, and the piece on which it rained not
 withered.
4:8 So two [or] three cities wandered to one city, to drink
 water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned to
 me, saith the LORD.
4:9 I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your
 gardens and your vineyards and your fig-trees and your
 olive-trees increased, the palmer-worm devoured [them]: yet
 have ye not returned to me, saith the LORD.
4:10 I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of
 Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have
 taken away your horses; and I have made the ill savor of your
 camps to come up to your nostrils: yet have ye not returned to
 me, saith the LORD.
4:11 I have overthrown [some] of you, as God overthrew Sodom and
 Gomorrah, and ye were as a fire-brand plucked out of the
 burning: yet have ye not returned to me, saith the LORD.
4:12 Therefore thus will I do to thee, O Israel: [and] because I
 will do this to thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.
4:13 For lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the
 wind, and declareth to man what [is] his thought, that maketh
 the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the
 earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, [is] his name.
