Amos 6
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Woe to those who despise Zion and are trusting in the mountain of Samaria, separated ones for the Rulers of the nations, and they exposed the children of Israel

2Cross over to Kalia and see and go from there to the great Khamath, and go down to Gath of the Philistines which is better than all these kingdoms, if their borders are greater than your borders

3Which are expecting the evil day and they are approaching the Sabbath of violence

4And they lie on beds of ivory and they seize greedily on their couches who eat fatlings of the flocks and calves from within the herds

5Who strike on the mouth of the harp, and like David they devised for themselves instruments of music

6Who drink strained wine and with excellent ointment they anoint themselves, and the ruin of Yoseph is no concern to them

7Because of this, they shall be taken captive at the head of the captivity, and merrymaking shall be taken away from their rulers

8The Lord of Lords has sworn by his soul, and LORD JEHOVAH, God of Hosts says: ”I detest the honor of Yaqob and I have hated his palaces and I shall hand over the city in its fullness

9And if ten men will remain in one house, they shall die 10And they shall carry out his paternal uncle or he who is near to him who brings out the bones from the house and shall say to him: ’Who is in the house? Is there another man with you in the house?’ And he shall say to him: ”There is not, because they burned them up, because they were not commemorating the name of LORD JEHOVAH!” 11Because, behold, LORD JEHOVAH shall go out and he shall strike the great house and he shall shake it and the little house, and he shall empty it

12Do horses run on rocks, or do they drive a plow with them? For you have turned justice back to bitterness and the fruit of righteousness to wormwood

13Who rejoice for nothing and they were saying: ”Was it not with our armies that we have taken the city for ourselves?”

14Because, behold, I am raising up a people against you, house of Israel, says LORD JEHOVAH, God of Hosts, and they shall drive you out from the entrance of Khamath and unto the valley of Araba
