Amos 3:12-4:5

12 Thus says the Lord: As the shepherd rescues from the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear, so shall the people of Israel who live in Samaria be rescued, with the corner of a couch and part* of a bed.


13 Hear, and testify against the house of Jacob,
   says the Lord God, the God of hosts:
14 On the day I punish Israel for its transgressions,
   I will punish the altars of Bethel,
and the horns of the altar shall be cut off
   and fall to the ground.
15 I will tear down the winter house as well as the summer house;
   and the houses of ivory shall perish,
and the great houses* shall come to an end,

says the Lord.

4Hear this word, you cows of Bashan
   who are on Mount Samaria,
who oppress the poor, who crush the needy,
   who say to their husbands, ‘Bring something to drink!’
2 The Lord God has sworn by his holiness:
   The time is surely coming upon you,
when they shall take you away with hooks,
   even the last of you with fish-hooks.
3 Through breaches in the wall you shall leave,
   each one straight ahead;
   and you shall be flung out into Harmon,*

says the Lord.
4 Come to Bethel—and transgress;
   to Gilgal—and multiply transgression;
bring your sacrifices every morning,
   your tithes every three days;
5 bring a thank-offering of leavened bread,
   and proclaim freewill-offerings, publish them;
   for so you love to do, O people of Israel!

says the Lord God.
