AMOS

And it shall devour the palace thereof;
8And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod,
And him that holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon;
And I will turn My hand against Ekron,
And the remnant of the Philistines shall perish,
Saith the Lord God.
 
9Thus saith the Lord:
For three transgressions of Tyre,
Yea, for four, I will not reverse it:
Because they delivered up a whole captivity to Edom,
And remembered not the brotherly covenant.
10So will I send a fire on the wall of Tyre,
And it shall devour the palaces thereof.
 
11Thus saith the Lord:
For three transgressions of Edom,
Yea, for four, I will not reverse it:
Because he did pursue his brother with the sword,
And did cast off all pity,
And his anger did tear perpetually,
And he kept his wrath for ever.
12So will I send a fire upon Teman,
And it shall devour the palaces of Bozrah.
 
13Thus saith the Lord:
For three transgressions of the children of Ammon,
Yea, for four, I will not reverse it:
Because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead,
That they might enlarge their border.
14So will I kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah,
And it shall devour the palaces thereof,
With shouting in the day of battle,
With a tempest in the day of the whirlwind;
15And their king shall go into captivity,
He and his princes together,
Saith the Lord.
 
2Thus saith the Lord:
For three transgressions of Moab,
Yea, for four, I will not reverse it:
Because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime.
2So will I send a fire upon Moab,
And it shall devour the palaces of Kerioth;
And Moab shall die with tumult,
With shouting, and with the sound of the horn;
3And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof,
And will slay all the princes thereof with him,
Saith the Lord.
 
4Thus saith the Lord:
For three transgressions of Judah,
Yea, for four, I will not reverse it:
Because they have rejected the law of the Lord,
And have not kept His statutes,
And their lies have caused them to err,
After which their fathers did walk.
5So will I send a fire upon Judah,
And it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.
 
6Thus saith the Lord:
For three transgressions, of Israel,
Yea, for four, I will not reverse it:
Because they sell the righteous for silver,
And the needy for a pair of shoes;
7That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor,
