阿摩司書 1

1猶大王烏西雅、約阿施的兒子以色列王耶羅波安執政期間,大地震前兩年,提哥亞的牧人阿摩司看到了關於以色列的異象。以下是阿摩司的話。

他說:
「耶和華在錫安[a]怒吼,
在耶路撒冷呼喊。
牧人的草場枯乾,
迦密山頂枯黃。」

對亞蘭的審判

耶和華說:
「大馬士革人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回對他們的懲罰,
因為他們用打糧食的鐵器蹂躪基列。
所以我要降火在哈薛王家,
燒毀便·哈達王的城堡。
我要折斷大馬士革城的門閂,
剷除亞文平原[b]的居民和伯·伊甸的掌權者,
使亞蘭人被擄到吉珥[c]
這是耶和華說的。」

對非利士的審判

耶和華說:
「迦薩人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回對他們的懲罰,
因為他們把被擄之人全都帶走,
賣到以東做奴隸。
所以,我要降火在迦薩的城牆上,
燒毀它的城堡。
我要剷除亞實突的居民和亞實基倫的掌權者,
伸手攻擊以革倫,
剩下的非利士人都要滅亡。
這是主耶和華說的。」

對泰爾的審判

耶和華說:
「泰爾人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回對他們的懲罰,
因為他們背棄弟兄之盟,
把被擄之人都賣到以東。
10 所以,我要降火在泰爾的城牆上,
燒毀它的城堡。」

對以東的審判

11 耶和華說:
「以東人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回對他們的懲罰,
因為他們拔刀追趕自己的弟兄,
沒有半點憐憫之心;
他們怒氣不息,永懷憤怒。
12 所以,我要降火在提幔,
燒毀波斯拉的城堡。」

對亞捫的審判

13 耶和華說:
「亞捫人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回對他們的懲罰,
因為他們為了擴張領土,
竟剖開基列孕婦的肚腹。
14 所以,我要在戰爭的吶喊聲中,
在暴風雨吹襲的時候,
降火在拉巴的城牆上,
燒毀它的城堡。
15 他們的君王和首領都要被擄。
這是耶和華說的。」

New International Version - UK

Amos 1

1The words of Amos, one of the shepherds of Tekoa – the vision he saw concerning Israel two years before the earthquake, when Uzziah was king of Judah and Jeroboam son of Jehoash[a] was king of Israel.

He said:

‘The Lord roars from Zion
    and thunders from Jerusalem;
the pastures of the shepherds dry up,
    and the top of Carmel withers.’

Judgment on Israel’s neighbours

This is what the Lord says:

‘For three sins of Damascus,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because she threshed Gilead
    with sledges having iron teeth,
I will send fire on the house of Hazael
    that will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.
I will break down the gate of Damascus;
    I will destroy the king who is in[b] the Valley of Aven[c]
and the one who holds the sceptre in Beth Eden.
    The people of Aram will go into exile to Kir,’
says the Lord.

This is what the Lord says:

‘For three sins of Gaza,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because she took captive whole communities
    and sold them to Edom,
I will send fire on the walls of Gaza
    that will consume her fortresses.
I will destroy the king[d] of Ashdod
    and the one who holds the sceptre in Ashkelon.
I will turn my hand against Ekron,
    till the last of the Philistines are dead,’
says the Sovereign Lord.

This is what the Lord says:

‘For three sins of Tyre,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because she sold whole communities of captives to Edom,
    disregarding a treaty of brotherhood,
10 I will send fire on the walls of Tyre
    that will consume her fortresses.’

11 This is what the Lord says:

‘For three sins of Edom,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because he pursued his brother with a sword
    and slaughtered the women of the land,
because his anger raged continually
    and his fury flamed unchecked,
12 I will send fire on Teman
    that will consume the fortresses of Bozrah.’

13 This is what the Lord says:

‘For three sins of Ammon,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because he ripped open the pregnant women of Gilead
    in order to extend his borders,
14 I will set fire to the walls of Rabbah
    that will consume her fortresses
amid war cries on the day of battle,
    amid violent winds on a stormy day.
15 Her king[e] will go into exile,
    he and his officials together,’
says the Lord.
