8 aThus hath the Lord God shewed unto me: and behold ba basket of csummer fruit. And he said, dAmos, what seest thou? And I said, bA basket of csummer fruit. Then said the Lord unto me,

eThe end is come upon my people of Israel;

dI will not again pass by them any more.

And fthe songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord God:

gThere shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.

hHear this, iO ye that jswallow up the needy,

Even to make kthe poor of the land to fail,

Saying, When will the ||lnew moon be gone, that we may msell corn?

And lthe nsabbath, that we may set forth wheat,

oMaking the ephah small, and the shekel great,

And falsifying pthe balances by deceit?

That we may buy the poor qfor silver,

qAnd the needy for a pair of shoes;

Yea, and msell rthe refuse of the wheat?

sThe Lord hath sworn by stthe excellency of Jacob,

Surely uI will never forget any of their works.

vShall not wthe land tremble for this,

And vxevery one mourn that dwelleth therein?

xAnd it shall rise up wholly as a flood;

And it shall be cast out and xdrowned, as by xythe flood of Egypt.

And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God,

That yyI will cause the sun to go down at noon,

And zI will darken the earth in the clear day:

10  And aI will turn your feasts into mourning,

And all your songs into lamentation;

And I will bring up bcsackcloth upon all loins,

And cbaldness upon every head;

And I will make it das the mourning of an only son,

And the end thereof as dea bitter day.

11  Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God,

That fI will send a famine in the land,

Not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,

But fgof hearing the words of the Lord:

12  And hthey shall wander ifrom sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,

They shall krun to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.

13  In that day shall the fair virgins and young men lfaint mfor thirst.

14  nThey that swear by othe sin of pSamaria,

And say, Thy god, qO Dan, liveth;

And, rThe manner of sBeer-sheba liveth;

Even they shall fall, and never rise up again.
