NASB — Amos 4 — KJV

“Yet You Have Not Returned to Me”

  1 Hear this word, you cows of aBashan who are on the bmountain of Samaria,
  Who coppress the poor, who crush the needy,
  Who say to Iyour husbands, “Bring now, that we may ddrink!”
  2 The Lord IGOD has asworn by His bholiness,
  “Behold, the days are coming upon you
  When IIthey will take you away with cmeat hooks,
  And the last of you with dfish hooks.
  3 “You will ago out [through] breaches [in the walls],
  Each one straight before her,
  And you Iwill be cast to Harmon,” declares the LORD.

  4 ¶ “Enter Bethel and transgress;
  In Gilgal multiply transgression!
  aBring your sacrifices every morning,
  Your tithes every three days.
  5IOffer a athank offering also from that which is leavened,
  And proclaim bfreewill offerings, make them known.
  For so you clove [to do], you sons of Israel,”
  Declares the Lord GOD.

  6 ¶ “But I gave you also acleanness of teeth in all your cities
  And lack of bread in all your places,
  Yet you have bnot returned to Me,” declares the LORD.
  7 “Furthermore, I awithheld the rain from you
  While [there were] still three months until harvest.
  Then I would send rain on one city
  And on banother city I would not send rain;
  One part would be rained on,
  While the part not rained on would dry up.
  8 “So two or three cities would stagger to another city to drink awater,
  But would bnot be satisfied;
  Yet you have cnot returned to Me,” declares the LORD.
  9 “I asmote you with scorching [wind] and mildew;
  And the bcaterpillar was devouring
  Your many gardens and vineyards, fig trees and olive trees;
  Yet you have cnot returned to Me,” declares the LORD.
  10 “I sent a aplague among you after the manner of Egypt;
  I bslew your young men by the sword along with your ccaptured horses,
  And I made the dstench of your camp rise up in your nostrils;
  Yet you have enot returned to Me,” declares the LORD.
  11 “I overthrew you, as aGod overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
  And you were like a bfirebrand snatched from a blaze;
  Yet you have cnot returned to Me,” declares the LORD.
  12 “Therefore thus I will do to you, O Israel;
  Because I will do this to you,
  Prepare to ameet your God, O Israel.”
  13 For behold, He who aforms mountains and bcreates the wind
  And cdeclares to man what are His thoughts,
  He who dmakes dawn into darkness
  And etreads on the high places of the earth,
  fThe LORD God of hosts is His name.

He reproveth Israel for oppression,

1 ¶ Hear this word, ye kine of Bashan, that [are] in the mountain of Samaria, which oppress the poor, which crush the needy, which say to their masters, Bring, and let us drink. 2 The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you, that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks. 3 And ye shall go out at the breaches, every [cow at that which is] before her; and ye shall cast [them] into the palace, saith the LORD.

for idolatry,

4 ¶ Come to Bethel, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, [and] your tithes after three years: 5 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim [and] publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

and for their incorrigibleness.

6 ¶ And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. 7 And also I have withholden the rain from you, when [there were] yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered. 8 So two [or] three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. 9 I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured [them]: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. 10 I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. 11 I have overthrown [some] of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. 12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: [and] because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. 13 For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what [is] his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, [is] his name.
