“bLord God, please pardon!
2How can Jacob stand,
For he is csmall?”
“It shall not be,” said the Lord.
“aLord God, please stop!
bHow can Jacob stand, for he is small?”

8 The Lord said to me, “aWhat do you see, Amos?” And I said, “A plumb line.” Then the Lord said,
“Behold I am about to put a bplumb line
In the midst of My people Israel.
9 “The ahigh places of Isaac will be desolated
And the bsanctuaries of Israel laid waste.
Then I will crise up against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.”
10 Then Amaziah, the apriest of Bethel, sent word to bJeroboam king of Israel, saying, “Amos has cconspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel; the land is unable to endure all his words.
12 Then Amaziah said to Amos, “aGo, you seer, flee away to the land of Judah and there eat bread and there do your prophesying!
17 “Therefore, thus says the Lord, ‘Your awife will become a harlot in the city, your bsons and your daughters will fall by the sword, your land will be parceled up by a measuring line and you yourself will die 1upon cunclean soil. Moreover, Israel will certainly go from its land into exile.’ ”
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 Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts.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.
