阿摩司书 1

1犹大王乌西雅、约阿施的儿子以色列王耶罗波安执政期间,大地震前两年,提哥亚的牧人阿摩司看到了关于以色列的异象。以下是阿摩司的话。

他说:
“耶和华在锡安[a]怒吼,
在耶路撒冷呼喊。
牧人的草场枯干,
迦密山顶枯黄。”

对亚兰的审判

耶和华说:
“大马士革人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回对他们的惩罚,
因为他们用打粮食的铁器蹂躏基列。
所以我要降火在哈薛王家,
烧毁便·哈达王的城堡。
我要折断大马士革城的门闩,
铲除亚文平原[b]的居民和伯·伊甸的掌权者,
使亚兰人被掳到吉珥[c]
这是耶和华说的。”

对非利士的审判

耶和华说:
“迦萨人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回对他们的惩罚,
因为他们把被掳之人全都带走,
卖到以东做奴隶。
所以,我要降火在迦萨的城墙上,
烧毁它的城堡。
我要铲除亚实突的居民和亚实基伦的掌权者,
伸手攻击以革伦,
剩下的非利士人都要灭亡。
这是主耶和华说的。”

对泰尔的审判

耶和华说:
“泰尔人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回对他们的惩罚,
因为他们背弃弟兄之盟,
把被掳之人都卖到以东。
10 所以,我要降火在泰尔的城墙上,
烧毁它的城堡。”

对以东的审判

11 耶和华说:
“以东人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回对他们的惩罚,
因为他们拔刀追赶自己的弟兄,
没有半点怜悯之心;
他们怒气不息,永怀愤怒。
12 所以,我要降火在提幔,
烧毁波斯拉的城堡。”

对亚扪的审判

13 耶和华说:
“亚扪人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回对他们的惩罚,
因为他们为了扩张领土,
竟剖开基列孕妇的肚腹。
14 所以,我要在战争的吶喊声中,
在暴风雨吹袭的时候,
降火在拉巴的城墙上,
烧毁它的城堡。
15 他们的君王和首领都要被掳。
这是耶和华说的。”

New International Reader's Version

Amos 1

1These are the words of Amos. He was a shepherd from the town of Tekoa. Here is the vision he saw concerning Israel. It came to him two years before the earthquake. At that time Uzziah was king of Judah. Jeroboam, the son of Jehoash, was king of Israel. Here are the words of Amos.

He said,

“The Lord roars like a lion from Jerusalem.
    His voice sounds like thunder from Zion.
The grasslands of the shepherds turn brown.
    The top of Mount Carmel dries up.”
