Amos 9


9:1 I saw the LORD standing upon the altar: and he said, Smite
 the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake: and cut them
 in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with
 the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he
 that escapeth of them shall not be delivered.
9:2 Though they dig into the place of the dead, thence shall my
 hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I
 bring them down:
9:3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I
 will search and take them out thence; and though they are hid
 from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command
 the serpent, and he shall bite them:
9:4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies,
 thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I
 will set my eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.
9:5 And the Lord GOD of hosts [is] he that toucheth the land,
 and it shall melt, and all that dwell in it shall mourn: and it
 shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as
 [by] the flood of Egypt.
9:6 [It is] he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and
 hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the
 waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the
 earth: the LORD [is] his name.
9:7 [Are] ye not as children of the Cushites to me, O children
 of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel from
 the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the
 Assyrians from Kir?
9:8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD [are] upon the sinful
 kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth;
 saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,
 saith the LORD.
9:9 For lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel
 among all nations, like as [corn] is sifted in a sieve, yet
 shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
9:10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, who
 say, The evil shall not overtake nor fall upon us.
9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that
 is fallen, and close up their breaches; and I will raise up its
 ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
9:12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the
 heathen, who are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth
 this.
9:13 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman
 shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that
 soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all
 the hills shall melt.
9:14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of
 Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit
 [them]; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine of
 them; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
9:15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no
 more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them,
 saith the LORD thy God.
