Amos 3:1-8,4:11-12

Israel’s Guilt and Punishment

3Hear this word that the Lord has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family that I brought up out of the land of Egypt:
2 You only have I known
   of all the families of the earth;
therefore I will punish you
   for all your iniquities.


3 Do two walk together
   unless they have made an appointment?
4 Does a lion roar in the forest,
   when it has no prey?
Does a young lion cry out from its den,
   if it has caught nothing?
5 Does a bird fall into a snare on the earth,
   when there is no trap for it?
Does a snare spring up from the ground,
   when it has taken nothing?
6 Is a trumpet blown in a city,
   and the people are not afraid?
Does disaster befall a city,
   unless the Lord has done it?
7 Surely the Lord God does nothing,
   without revealing his secret
   to his servants the prophets.
8 The lion has roared;
   who will not fear?
The Lord God has spoken;
   who can but prophesy?


11 I overthrew some of you,
   as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
   and you were like a brand snatched from the fire;
yet you did not return to me,

says the Lord.


12 Therefore, thus I will do to you, O Israel;
   because I will do this to you,
   prepare to meet your God, O Israel!
