030:007:001
Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me;
and,
behold,
he formed grasshoppers in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth;
and,
lo,
it was the latter growth after the king's mowings.


030:007:002
And it came to pass,
that when they had made an end of eating the grass of the land,
then I said,
O Lord GOD,
forgive,
I beseech thee:
by whom shall Jacob arise?
for he is small.


030:007:003
The LORD repented for this:
It shall not be,
saith the LORD.


030:007:004
Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me:
and,
behold,
the Lord GOD called to contend by fire,
and it devoured the great deep,
and did eat up a part.


030:007:005
Then said I,
O Lord GOD,
cease,
I beseech thee:
by whom shall Jacob arise?
for he is small.


030:007:006
The LORD repented for this:
This also shall not be,
saith the Lord GOD.


030:007:007
Thus he shewed me:
and,
behold,
the LORD stood upon a wall made by a plumbline,
with a plumbline in his hand.


030:007:008
And the LORD said unto me,
Amos,
what seest thou?
And I said,
A plumbline.
Then said the LORD,
Behold,
I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel:
I will not again pass by them any more:


030:007:009
And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate,
and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste;
and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.


030:007:010
Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel,
saying,
Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel:
the land is not able to bear all his words.


030:007:011
For thus Amos saith,
Jeroboam shall die by the sword,
and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.


030:007:012
Also Amaziah said unto Amos,
O thou seer,
go,
flee thee away into the land of Judah,
and there eat bread,
and prophesy there:


030:007:013
But prophesy not again any more at Bethel:
for it is the king's chapel,
and it is the king's court.


030:007:014
Then answered Amos,
and said to Amaziah,
I was no prophet,
neither was I a prophet's son;
but I was an herdman,
and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:


030:007:015
And the LORD took me as I followed the flock,
and the LORD said unto me,
Go,
prophesy unto my people Israel.


030:007:016
Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD:
Thou sayest,
Prophesy not against Israel,
and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac.


030:007:017
Therefore thus saith the LORD;
Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city,
and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword,
and thy land shall be divided by line;
and thou shalt die in a polluted land:
and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.
