NASB — Amos 9 — KJV

God’s Judgment Unavoidable

1 I saw the Lord standing beside the aaltar, and He said,
  “Smite the capitals so that the bthresholds will shake,
  And cbreak them on the heads of them all!
  Then I will dslay the rest of them with the sword;
  They will enot have a fugitive who will flee,
  Or a refugee who will escape.
  2 “Though they dig into aSheol,
  From there will My hand take them;
  And though they bascend to heaven,
  From there will I bring them down.
  3 “Though they hide on the summit of Carmel,
  I will asearch them out and take them from there;
  And though they bconceal themselves from My sight on the floor of the sea,
  From there I will command the cserpent and it will bite them.
  4 “And though they go into acaptivity before their enemies,
  From there I will command the sword that it slay them,
  And I will bset My eyes against them for evil and not for good.”

  The One who atouches the land so that it melts,
  And ball those who dwell in it mourn,
  And all of it rises up like the Nile
  And subsides like the Nile of Egypt;

  And has founded His vaulted dome over the earth,

The Restoration of Israel

  11 ¶ “In that day I will araise up the fallen Ibbooth of David,
  And wall up its cbreaches;
  I will also raise up its ruins
  And rebuild it as in the ddays of old;
  12 aThat they may possess the remnant of bEdom
  And all the Inations who are ccalled by My name,”
  Declares the LORD who does this.

  When the bmountains will drip sweet cwine
  And all the hills will be dissolved.
  14 “Also I will arestore the Icaptivity of My people Israel,

  15 “I will also plant them on their land,

  Which I have given them,”

The certainty of the desolation.

1 ¶ I saw the Lord standing upon the altar: and he said, Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake: and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered. 2 Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down: 3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them: 4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good. 5 And the Lord GOD of hosts [is] he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as [by] the flood of Egypt. 6 [It is] he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD [is] his name. 7 [Are] ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir? 8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD [are] upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD. 9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as [corn] is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth. 10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.

The restoring of the Tabernacle of David.

11 ¶ In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: 12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. 13 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. 14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit [them]; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. 15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
