阿摩司書 2

對摩押的審判

1耶和華說:
「摩押人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回對他們的懲罰,
因為他們把以東王的骸骨焚燒成灰。
所以我要降火在摩押,
燒毀加略的城堡。
摩押要在戰爭的喧囂、吶喊和號角聲中滅亡。
我要剷除摩押的君王,
殺死那裡所有的首領。
這是耶和華說的。」

對猶大的審判

耶和華說:
「猶大人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回對他們的懲罰,
因為他們厭棄耶和華的訓誨,
不遵守我的律例。
他們祖先祭拜的偶像使他們走入歧途。
所以我要降火在猶大,
燒毀耶路撒冷的城堡。」

對以色列的審判

耶和華說:
「以色列人三番四次地犯罪,
我必不收回對他們的懲罰,
因為他們為了銀子賣掉義人,
為了一雙鞋子賣掉窮人。
他們踐踏窮人如同踐踏地上的塵土,
使卑微的人無處伸冤;
父子同淫一女,褻瀆我的聖名。
在每座祭壇旁邊,
他們把窮人典當的衣服鋪開,躺在上面,
又在上帝的殿裡喝剝削來的酒。

「以色列人啊,
我在你們面前消滅了亞摩利人。
雖然他們像香柏樹那樣高大,
如橡樹那樣強壯,
但我滅盡了他們的果子,
砍斷了他們的根。
10 我帶領你們離開埃及,
在曠野引導你們四十年,
使你們得到亞摩利人的土地。
11 我從你們的子孫中揀選先知,
從你們的青年中揀選拿細耳人[a]
以色列人啊,難道不是這樣嗎?
這是耶和華說的。
12 可是,你們迫使拿細耳人喝酒,
禁止先知傳達我的話。
13 看啊,我要壓碎你們,
如滿載穀物的車軋過一樣。
14 快捷的無法逃遁,
強壯的無力可施,
勇猛的救不了自己,
15 拉弓的站立不住,
腿快的無法逃脫,
騎馬的救不了自己。
16 到那日,
最勇猛的戰士也要丟盔棄甲,倉皇逃命。
這是耶和華說的。

King James Version

Amos 2

1Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime:

But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the palaces of Kirioth: and Moab shall die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet:

And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof, and will slay all the princes thereof with him, saith the Lord.

Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the Lord, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:

But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.

Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes;

That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid, to profane my holy name:

And they lay themselves down upon clothes laid to pledge by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.

Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.

10 Also I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and led you forty years through the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorite.

11 And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith the Lord.

12 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not.

13 Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart is pressed that is full of sheaves.

14 Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shall the mighty deliver himself:

15 Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow; and he that is swift of foot shall not deliver himself: neither shall he that rideth the horse deliver himself.

16 And he that is courageous among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day, saith the Lord.
