1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
1 The judgments of the grasshoppers, 4 and of the fire, are diverted by the prayer of Amos. 7 By the wall of a plumbline is signified the rejection of Israel. 10 Amaziah complaineth of Amos. 14 Amos sheweth his calling, 16 and Amaziah's judgment.
7:4 Here, My Lord, Yahweh gave me to see, and lo! My Lord Yahweh proclaiming that, the controversy should be settled by fire,which, having devoured the mighty roaring deep, should devour the inheritance.
7:7 Here, he gave me to see, and lo! My Lord, stationed upon a pinnacle,and, in his hand a plummet.
7:9 So shall the high places of Isaac, be made desolate, and, the holy places of Israel, be laid waste,and I will rise up, against the house of Jeroboam, with the sword.
7:10 ¶ Then sent Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, unto Jeroboam king of Israel, saying: A conspiracy hath Amos, raised against thee, in the midst of the house of Israel, The land, is not able to endure, all his words;
7:11 For, thus, saith Amos, By the sword, shall Jeroboam, die,and, Israel, shall, surely be exiled, from off his own soil.
7:12 Then said Amaziah unto Amos, O seer, go flee thee away unto the land of Judahand eat, there, bread, and, there, mayest thou prophesy;
7:13 But, at Bethel, not again, any more, mayest thou prophesy,for, the holy place of the king, it is, and, the house of the kingdom, it is.
7:14 Then answered Amos, and said unto Amaziah, No prophet, was I,nor the son of a prophet, was I,but, a herdman, was I, and a preparer of sycamore fruit;
7:17 ThereforeThus, saith Yahweh, Thy wife, in the city, will commit unchastity, and, thy sons and thy daughters, by the sword, shall fall, and, thine own soil, by line, shall he apportioned,and, thou, on a polluted soil, shalt die, and, Israel, shall, surely go into exile, away from his own soil.
