Chapter 1

Judgment on Neighbor Nations

1 The words of Amos, who was among the asheepherders from bTekoa, which he 1envisioned in visions concerning Israel in the days of cUzziah king of Judah, and in the days of dJeroboam son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the eearthquake.

2 He said,

“The aLord roars from Zion

And from Jerusalem He utters His voice;

And the shepherds’ bpasture grounds mourn,

And the 1csummit of Carmel dries up.”

3 Thus says the Lord,

“For athree transgressions of bDamascus and for four

I will not 1revoke its punishment,

Because they threshed Gilead with implements of sharp iron.

4 “So I will send fire upon the house of Hazael

And it will consume the citadels of aBen-hadad.

5 “I will also abreak the gate bar of Damascus,

And cut off the inhabitant from the 1valley of Aven,

And him who holds the scepter, from Beth-eden;

So the people of Aram will go exiled to bKir,”

Says the Lord.

6 Thus says the Lord,

“For three transgressions of aGaza and for four

I will not revoke its punishment,

Because they deported an entire population

To bdeliver it up to Edom.

7 “So I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza

And it will consume her citadels.

8 “I will also cut off the inhabitant from aAshdod,

And him who holds the scepter, from bAshkelon;

I will even 1unleash My 2power upon Ekron,

And the remnant of the cPhilistines will perish,

Says the Lord 3God.

9 Thus says the Lord,

“For three transgressions of aTyre and for four

I will not revoke its punishment,

Because they delivered up an entire population to Edom

And did not remember the covenant of 1bbrotherhood.

10 “So I will asend fire upon the wall of Tyre

And it will consume her citadels.”

11 Thus says the Lord,

“For three transgressions of aEdom and for four

I will not revoke its punishment,

Because he bpursued his brother with the sword,

While he 1stifled his compassion;

His anger also ctore continually,

And he maintained his fury forever.

12 “So I will send fire upon aTeman

And it will consume the citadels of Bozrah.”

13 Thus says the Lord,

“For three transgressions of the sons of aAmmon and for four

I will not revoke its punishment,

Because they bripped open the pregnant women of Gilead

In order to cenlarge their borders.

14 “So I will kindle a fire on the wall of aRabbah

And it will consume her citadels

Amid 1bwar cries on the day of battle,

And a cstorm on the day of tempest.

15 “Their aking will go into exile,

He and his princes together,” says the Lord.

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
