Amos 7:10–17

10 Then Amaziah ithe priest of kBeth-el sent to lJeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath mconspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able nto bear all his words. 11 For thus Amos saith, hJeroboam shall die by the sword, and oIsrael shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.

12 Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou pseer, go, flee thee away qinto the land of Judah, and there reat bread, and prophesy there: 13 But sprophesy not again any more at kBeth-el: tfor it is the king’s ||uchapel, and it is the king’s court. 14 Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, vI was no prophet, neither was I wa prophet’s son; but vI xwas an herdman, and a gatherer of ||ysycomore fruit: 15 And the Lord took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.

16  Now therefore yyhear thou the word of the Lord:

Thou sayest, sProphesy not against Israel,

And zdrop not thy word against the house of aIsaac.

17  bTherefore thus saith the Lord;

cThy wife shall be an harlot in the city,

And thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword,

And thy land dshall be divided by line;

And thou shalt die in ea polluted land:

And fIsrael shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.
