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.

Amosi 1

1Bino bye bigambo Amosi eyali omu ku balunzi b’endiga mu bitundu by’e Tekowa bye yabikkulirwa, musisi amale ajje nga wakayitawo emyaka ebiri, mu mirembe gya Uzziya kabaka wa Yuda, era nga gy’emirembe gya kabaka Yerobowaamu mutabani wa Yowaasi nga y’afuga Isirayiri.

Amosi yagamba nti,

Mukama awuluguma ng’asinziira mu Sayuuni,
    era eddoboozi lye liwulirwa nga libwatukira mu Yerusaalemi;
omuddo mu malundiro gulikala
    n’entikko y’olusozi Kalumeeri erisigala njereere.”

Okulamulwa kwa Baliraanwa ba Isirayiri

Bw’ati bw’ayogera Mukama nti,

“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.
