Amos 6:1–6

Warnings to Zion and Samaria

6 Woe ato you who are at bease in Zion,

And ctrust in Mount Samaria,

Notable persons in the dchief nation,

To whom the house of Israel comes!

2 eGo over to fCalneh and see;

And from there go to gHamath the great;

Then go down to Gath of the Philistines.

hAre you better than these kingdoms?

Or is their territory greater than your territory?

3 Woe to you who iput far off the day of jdoom,

kWho cause lthe seat of violence to come near;

4 Who lie on beds of ivory,

Stretch out on your couches,

Eat lambs from the flock

And calves from the midst of the stall;

5 mWho sing idly to the sound of stringed instruments,

And invent for yourselves nmusical instruments olike David;

6 Who pdrink wine from bowls,

And anoint yourselves with the best ointments,

qBut are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.
