|1 Thus has the Lord God shewed me; and, behold, a swarm of locusts coming from the east; and, behold, one caterpillar, king Gog. 2 And it came to pass when he had finished devouring the grass of the land, that I said, Lord God, be merciful; who shall raise up Jacob? for he is small in number. 3 Repent, O Lord, for this. And this shall not be, saith the Lord. 4 Thus has the Lord shewed me; and, behold, the Lord called for judgment by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and devoured the Lord’s portion. 5 Then I said, O Lord, cease, I pray thee: who shall raise up Jacob? for he is small in number. Repent, O Lord, for this. 6 This also shall not be, saith the Lord. 7 Thus the Lord shewed me; and behold, he stood upon a wall of adamant, and in his hand [was] an adamant. 8 And the Lord said to me, What seest thou, Amos? And I said, An adamant. And the Lord said to me, Behold, I appoint an adamant in the midst of my people Israel: I will not pass by them any more. 9 And the joyful altars shall be abolished, and the sacrifices of Israel shall be set aside; and I will rise up against the house of Jeroboam with the sword. 10 Then Amasias the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos is forming conspiracies against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land will be utterly unable to bear all his words. 11 For thus says Amos, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall be led away captive from his land. 12 And Amasias said to Amos, Go, seer, remove thou into the land of Juda, and live there, and thou shalt prophesy there: 13 but thou shalt no longer prophesy at Bethel: for it is the king’s sanctuary, and it is the royal house. 14 And Amos answered, and said to Amasias, I was not a prophet, nor the son of a prophet; but I was a herdman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruits. 15 And the Lord took me from the sheep, and the Lord said to me, Go, and prophesy to my people Israel. 16 And now hear the word of the Lord: Thou sayest, Prophesy not to Israel, and raise not a tumult against the house of Jacob. 17 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Thy wife shall be a harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be measured with the line; and thou shalt die in an unclean land; and Israel shall be led captive out of his land.||
ΟΥΤΩΣ ἔδειξέ μοι Κύριος ὁ Θεός, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐπιγονὴ ἀκρίδων ἐρχομένη ἑωθινή, καὶ ἰδοὺ βροῦχος εἷς Γὼγ ὁ βασιλεύς. 2 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν συντελέσῃ τοῦ καταφαγεῖν τὸν χόρτον τῆς γῆς, καὶ εἶπα· Κύριε Κύριε, ἵλεως γενοῦ· τίς ἀναστήσει τὸν ᾿Ιακώβ; ὅτι ὀλιγοστός ἐστι· 3 μετανόησον, Κύριε, ἐπὶ τούτῳ. καὶ τοῦτο οὐκ ἔσται, λέγει Κύριος. - 4 Οὕτως ἔδειξέ μοι Κύριος, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐκάλεσε τὴν δίκην ἐν πυρὶ Κύριος, καὶ κατέφαγε τὴν ἄβυσσον τὴν πολλὴν καὶ κατέφαγε τὴν μερίδα Κυρίου. 5 καὶ εἶπα· Κύριε, κόπασον δή, τίς ἀναστήσει τὸν ᾿Ιακώβ; ὅτι ὀλιγοστός ἐστι· 6 μετανόησον, Κύριε, ἐπὶ τούτῳ. καὶ τοῦτο οὐ μὴ γένηται, λέγει Κύριος. - 7 Οὕτως ἔδειξέ μοι Κύριος, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἑστηκὼς ἐπὶ τείχους ἀδαμαντίνου, καὶ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ ἀδάμας. 8 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· τί σὺ ὁρᾷς, ᾿Αμώς; καὶ εἶπα· ἀδάμαντα· καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐντάσσω ἀδάμαντα ἐν μέσῳ λαοῦ μου ᾿Ισραήλ, οὐκέτι μὴ προσθῶ τοῦ παρελθεῖν αὐτόν· 9 καὶ ἀφανισθήσονται βωμοὶ τοῦ γέλωτος, καὶ αἱ τελεταί τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐρημωθήσονται, καὶ ἀναστήσομαι ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον ῾Ιεροβοὰμ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ. - 10 Καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν ᾿Αμασίας ὁ ἱερεὺς Βαιθὴλ πρὸς ῾Ιεροβοὰμ βασιλέα ᾿Ισραὴλ λέγων· συστροφὰς ποιεῖται κατὰ σοῦ ᾿Αμὼς ἐν μέσῳ οἴκου ᾿Ισραήλ· οὐ μὴ δύνηται ἡ γῆ ὑπενεγκεῖν πάντας τοὺς λόγους αὐτοῦ, 11 διότι τάδε λέγει ᾿Αμώς· ἐν ρομφαίᾳ τελευτήσει ῾Ιεροβοάμ, ὁ δὲ ᾿Ισραὴλ αἰχμάλωτος ἀχθήσεται ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ. 12 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Αμασίας πρὸς ᾿Αμώς· ὁ ὁρῶν, βάδιζε ἐκχώρησον σὺ εἰς γῆν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐκεῖ καταβίου καὶ ἐκεῖ προφητεύσεις, 13 εἰς δὲ Βαιθὴλ οὐκέτι προσθήσεις τοῦ προφητεῦσαι, ὅτι ἁγίασμα βασιλέως ἐστὶ καὶ οἶκος βασιλείας ἐστί. 14 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ᾿Αμὼς καὶ εἶπε πρὸς ᾿Αμασίαν· οὐκ ἤμην προφήτης ἐγὼ οὐδὲ υἱὸς προφήτου, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ αἰπόλος ἤμην καὶ κνίζων συκάμινα· 15 καὶ ἀνέλαβέ με Κύριος ἐκ τῶν προβάτων, καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· βάδιζε προφήτευσον ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν μου ᾿Ισραήλ. 16 καὶ νῦν ἄκουε λόγον Κυρίου. σὺ λέγεις· μὴ προφήτευε ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ οὐ μὴ ὀχλαγωγήσῃς ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον ᾿Ιακώβ· 17 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἡ γυνή σου ἐν τῇ πόλει πορνεύσει, καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες σου ἐν ρομφαίᾳ πεσοῦνται, καὶ ἡ γῆ σου ἐν σχοινίῳ καταμετρηθήσεται, καὶ σὺ ἐν γῇ ἀκαθάρτῳ τελευτήσεις, ὁ δὲ ᾿Ισραὴλ αἰχμάλωτος ἀχθήσεται ἀπὸ γῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ.
