Amos 8


8:1 Thus hath the Lord GOD shown to me: and behold a basket of
 summer fruit.
8:2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of
 summer fruit. Then said the LORD to me, The end is come upon my
 people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.
8:3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day,
 saith the Lord GOD: [there shall be] many dead bodies in every
 place; they shall cast [them] forth with silence.
8:4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the
 poor of the land to fail,
8:5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell
 corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the
 ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances
 by deceit?
8:6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a
 pair of shoes; and even sell the refuse of the wheat?
8:7 The LORD hath sworn by the excellence of Jacob, Surely I
 will never forget any of their works.
8:8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn
 that dwelleth in it? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood:
 and it shall be cast out and drowned, as [by] the flood of
 Egypt.
8:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD,
 that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken
 the earth in the clear day:
8:10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your
 songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all
 loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the
 mourning of an only [son], and the end of it as a bitter day.
8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send
 a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for
 water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north
 even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of
 the LORD, and shall not find [it].
8:13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for
 thirst.
8:14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O
 Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beer-sheba liveth; even they
 shall fall, and never rise again.
