“Olw’ebyonoono bya Ddamasiko ebisatu,
    weewaawo ebina, siriggyawo busungu bwange.
Kubanga baabonereza nnyo abantu b’e Gireyaadi
    nga babasalaasala n’ebyuma.
Ndiweereza omuliro mu lubiri lwa kabaka Kazayeeri
    era njokye n’ebigo bya kabaka Benikadadi.
Era ndimenya enzigi z’ekibuga Ddamasiko
    era ndizikiriza kabaka ali mu Kiwonvu ky’e Aveni,
oyo akwata omuggo ogw’obwakabaka mu Besiadeni.
    Abantu b’e Busuuli balitwalibwa mu buwaŋŋanguse mu Kiri,”
    bw’ayogera Mukama.

Bw’ati bw’ayogera Mukama nti,

“Olw’ebyonoono bya Gaza ebisatu,
    weewaawo ebina, siriggyawo busungu bwange.
Kubanga yatwala eggwanga ddamba mu busibe
    n’alitunda eri Edomu.
Ndiweereza omuliro ku bbugwe wa Gaza
    ogulyokya ebigo byakyo.
Ndizikiriza atuula mu Asudodi,
    n’oyo akwata omuggo gw’obwakabaka ndimumalawo okuva mu Asukulooni.
Ndibonereza Ekuloni
    okutuusa lwe ndimalirawo ddala Abafirisuuti,”
    bw’ayogera Mukama.

Mukama bw’ati bw’ayogera nti,

“Olw’ebyonoono bya Ttuulo ebisatu,
    weewaawo ebina, siriggyawo busungu bwange.
Kubanga yatunda eggwanga ddamba erya Edomu mu busibe
    n’amenya endagaano ey’obwaseruganda eyali ekoleddwa,
10 kyenaava mpeereza omuliro ku bbugwe wa Ttuulo,
    ogunaayokya ebigo byakyo.”

11 Bw’ati bw’ayogera Mukama nti,

“Olw’ebyonoono bya Edomu ebisatu,
    weewaawo ebina, siriggyawo busungu bwange.
Kubanga yayigganya muganda we n’ekitala
    awatali kusaasira,
obusungu bwabwe ne bubuubuuka obutakoma
    era ne batabusalako.
12 Ndiweereza omuliro ku Temani
    oguliyokya ebigo bya Bozula.”

13 Bw’ati bw’ayogera Mukama nti,

“Olw’ebyonoono bya Amoni ebisatu
    weewaawo ebina, siriggyawo busungu bwange.
Mu ntalo ez’okugaziya ensi ye,
    yabaaga abakazi abaali embuto ab’e Giriyaadi.
14 Ndiweereza omuliro ku bbugwe wa Labba,
    era gulyokya ebigo byakyo.
Walibaawo n’oluyoogaano olunene ku lunaku olw’olutalo
    mu mpewo ey’amaanyi, kibuyaga ng’akunta.
15 Kabaka waakyo alitwalibwa mu buwaŋŋanguse,
    ye n’abakungu be bonna,”
    bw’ayogera Mukama.

Amplified Bible

Amos 1

Judgment on Neighboring Nations

1The words of Amos, who was among the sheepherders of [a]Tekoa, which he saw [in a divine revelation] concerning [b]Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.


And he said,
“The Lord thunders and roars from Zion [in judgment]
And utters His voice from Jerusalem;
Then the pastures of the shepherds mourn,
And the summit of [Mount] Carmel dries up [because of God’s judgment].”


Thus says the Lord,
“For three transgressions of Damascus and for four (multiplied delinquencies)
I shall not reverse its punishment or revoke My word concerning it,
Because they have threshed Gilead [east of the Jordan River] with sharp iron sledges [having spikes that crushed and shredded].

“So I will send a fire [of war, conquest, and destruction] upon the house of [c]Hazael,
And it shall devour the palaces and strongholds of [d]Ben-hadad (Hazael’s son).

“I also will break the bar [of the gate] of Damascus,
And cut off and destroy the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven (Wickedness),
And the ruler who holds the scepter, from Beth-eden (Damascus);
And the people of Aram [conquered by the Assyrians] will go into exile to [e]Kir,”
Says the Lord.


Thus says the Lord,
“For three transgressions of Gaza [in Philistia] and for four (multiplied delinquencies)
I will not reverse its punishment or revoke My word concerning it,
Because [as slave traders] they took captive the entire [Jewish] population [of defenseless Judean border villages, of which none was spared]
And deported them to Edom [for the slave trade].

“So I will send a fire [of war, conquest, and destruction] on the wall of Gaza
And it shall consume her citadels.

“And I will cut off and destroy the inhabitants from Ashdod,
And the ruler who holds the scepter, from Ashkelon;
And I will unleash My power and turn My hand [in judgment] against Ekron,
And the rest of the Philistines [in Gath and the towns dependent on these four Philistine cities] shall die,”
Says the Lord God.


Thus says the Lord,
“For three transgressions of Tyre and for four (multiplied delinquencies)
I will not reverse its punishment or revoke My word concerning it,
Because they [as middlemen] deported an entire [Jewish] population to Edom
And did not [seriously] remember their covenant of brotherhood.
10 
“So I will send a fire [of war, conquest, and destruction] on the wall of Tyre,
And it shall consume her citadels.”

11 
Thus says the Lord,
“For three transgressions of Edom [the descendants of Esau] and for four (multiplied delinquencies)
I will not reverse its punishment or revoke My word concerning it,
Because he pursued his brother Jacob (Israel) with the sword,
Corrupting and stifling his compassions and casting off all mercy;
His destructive anger raged continually,
And he maintained [and nurtured] his wrath forever.
12 
“So I will send a fire [of war, conquest, and destruction] upon Teman,
And it shall consume the citadels of Bozrah [in Edom].”

13 
Thus says the Lord,
“For three transgressions of the children of [f]Ammon and for four (multiplied delinquencies)
I will not reverse its punishment or revoke My word concerning it,
Because the Ammonites have ripped open the pregnant women of Gilead,
That they might enlarge their border.
14 
“So I will kindle a fire [of war, conquest, and destruction] on the wall of Rabbah [in Ammon]
And it shall devour its strongholds
Amid war cries and shouts of alarm on the day of battle,
And a tempest on the day of the whirlwind [when the enemy captures the city].
15 
“Their king shall go into exile,
He and his princes together,” says the Lord.
