    ndipo pamwamba pa Karimeli pakuwuma.”

Chiweruzo pa Anthu Oyandikana ndi Israeli

Yehova akuti,

“Chifukwa anthu a ku Damasiko akunka nachimwirachimwira,
    Ine sindileka kuwalanga.
Popeza anapuntha Giliyadi
    ndi zopunthira za mano achitsulo,
Ine ndidzatumiza moto pa nyumba ya Hazaeli
    umene udzanyeketsa nyumba zaufumu za Beni-Hadadi.
Ndidzathyola chipata cha Damasiko;
    ndidzawononga mfumu yokhala ku Chigwa cha Aveni,
ndiponso iye amene akugwira ndodo yaufumu mu Beti-Edeni.
    Anthu a ku Aramu adzapita ku ukapolo ku Kiri,”
            akutero Yehova.

Yehova akuti,

“Chifukwa anthu a ku Gaza akunka nachimwirachimwira,
    Ine sindileka kuwalanga.
Popeza anatenga ukapolo mtundu wathunthu
    ndi kuwugulitsa ku Edomu,
ndidzatumiza moto pa makoma a Gaza
    umene udzanyeketsa nyumba zake zaufumu.
Ndidzawononga mfumu ya ku Asidodi
    komanso amene akugwira ndodo yaufumu ku Asikeloni.
Ndidzalanga Ekroni,
    mpaka wotsala mwa Afilisti atafa,”
            akutero Ambuye Yehova.

Yehova akuti,

“Chifukwa anthu a ku Turo akunka nachimwirachimwira,
    Ine sindileka kuwalanga.
Popeza iwo anagulitsa mtundu wathunthu ku ukapolo ku Edomu,
    osasunga pangano laubale lija,
10 Ine ndidzatumiza moto pa makoma a Turo
    umene udzanyeketsa nyumba zake zaufumu.”

11 Yehova akuti,

“Chifukwa anthu a ku Edomu akunka nachimwirachimwira,
    Ine sindileka kuwalanga.
Popeza anathamangitsa mʼbale wake ndi lupanga,
    popanda nʼchifundo chomwe.
Popeza mkwiyo wake unakulabe
    ndipo ukali wake sunatonthozeke,
12 Ine ndidzatumiza moto pa Temani
    umene udzanyeketsa nyumba zaufumu za Bozira.”

13 Yehova akuti,

“Chifukwa anthu a ku Amoni akunka nachimwirachimwira,
    Ine sindileka kuwalanga.
Popeza anatumbula akazi oyembekezera a ku Giliyadi
    nʼcholinga choti akuze malire awo,
14 Ine ndidzayatsa moto pa makoma a ku Raba
    umene udzanyeketsa nyumba zake zaufumu.
Padzakhala kulira kwakukulu pa tsiku la nkhondoyo,
    kumenyana kudzakhala kwafumbi ngati mkuntho wa kamvuluvulu.
15 Mfumu yawo idzatengedwa kupita ku ukapolo,
    iyo pamodzi ndi akuluakulu ake,”
            akutero Yehova.

New International Version

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 Neighbors

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 scepter 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 scepter 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.
