030:008:001
Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me:
and behold a basket of summer fruit.


030:008:002
And he said,
Amos,
what seest thou?
And I said,
A basket of summer fruit.
Then said the LORD unto me,
The end is come upon my people of Israel;
I will not again pass by them any more.


030:008:003
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.


030:008:004
Hear this,
O ye that swallow up the needy,
even to make the poor of the land to fail,


030:008:005
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?


030:008:006
That we may buy the poor for silver,
and the needy for a pair of shoes;
yea,
and sell the refuse of the wheat?


030:008:007
The LORD hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob,
Surely I will never forget any of their works.


030:008:008
Shall not the land tremble for this,
and every one mourn that dwelleth therein?
and it shall rise up wholly as a flood;
and it shall be cast out and drowned,
as by the flood of Egypt.


030:008:009
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:


030:008:010
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 thereof as a bitter day.


030:008:011
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:


030:008:012
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.


030:008:013
In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.


030:008:014
They that swear by the sin of Samaria,
and say,
Thy god,
O Dan,
liveth;
and,
The manner of Beersheba liveth;
even they shall fall,
and never rise up again.
