Amos 6. Warning To Zion And Samaria. The Destruction Of Israel! God.

(Show chapter frame)

1 Woe to them that are at
ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named
chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came! 2 Pass
ye unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go ye to Hamath the great: then go
down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than these kingdoms? or
their border greater than your border? 3 Ye that put
far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near; 4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon
their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the
midst of the stall; 5 That chant to the sound of the
viol, and invent to themselves instruments of music, like David; 6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the
chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph. 7 Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go
captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.

8 The Lord GOD hath sworn by
himself, saith the LORD the God of hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and
hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is
therein. 9 And it shall come to pass, if there remain
ten men in one house, that they shall die. 10 And a
man’s uncle shall take him up, and he that burneth him, to bring out the bones
out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the
house, Is there yet any with thee? and he shall say, No. Then
shall he say, Hold thy tongue: for we may not make mention of the name of the
LORD. 11 For, behold, the LORD commandeth, and he will
smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with clefts. 12 Shall horses run upon the rock? will one plow there
with oxen? for ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of
righteousness into hemlock: 13 Ye which rejoice in a
thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength? 14 But, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house
of Israel, saith the LORD the God of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the
entering in of Hemath unto the river of the wilderness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May God bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May God
make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His
countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

 

May the grace the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the
fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen!
