Locust, Fire, and Adamant1 Thus [3showed 4to me 1the lord 2God]; and behold, a breed of locusts coming in early morning, and behold [2grasshopper 1one] -- Gog the king. 2 And it shall be when [7should be completed 1the 2devouring 3the 4grass 5of the 6land], that I said, O lord, [2kind 1be]! Who shall raise up Jacob, for he is very few? 3 Change your mind, O lord, over this! And this shall not be, says the lord. 4 Thus [2showed 3to me 1the lord]. And behold [2called 3punishment 4by 5fire 1the lord], and it devoured the [2abyss 1great], and it devoured the portion. 5 And I said, O lord God, abate indeed! Who shall raise up Jacob, for he is very few? Change your mind, O lord, over this! 6 And this in no way should be, says the lord. 7 So [2showed 3to me 1the lord]. And behold, the Lord was standing upon a wall of adamantine, and in his hand adamant. 8 And the lord said to me, What do you see, Amos? And I said, Adamant. And the Lord said to me, Behold, I arrange an adamant in the midst of my people Israel; no longer shall I proceed to go by it. 9 And [3shall be obliterated 1the shrines 2of laughter]; and the sites of the mystic rites of Israel shall be made desolate. And I will rise up against the house of Jeroboam with a broadsword. 10 And [4sent out 1Amaziah 2the 3priest] of Beth-el to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, [3a confederacy 2makes 4against 5you 1Amos] in the midst of the house of Israel. In no way will [3be able 1the 2land] to endure all his words. 11 For thus says Amos, By the broadsword Jeroboam shall come to an end, and Israel [2captive 1shall be led] from his land. 12 And Amaziah said to Amos, the one seeing, Proceed! Withdraw into the land of Judah, and there spend your life! and there you shall prophesy. 13 But in Beth-el no longer shall you proceed to prophesy. For [2a sanctuary 3for the king 1it is], and [2a house 3of royalty 1it is]. 14 And Amos answered and said to Amaziah, I was not a prophet, nor a son of a prophet; but I was a herder, one plucking fruit of the mulberry-tree. 15 And [2took 3me 1the lord] from the sheep, and the lord said to me, Proceed and prophesy over my people Israel! 16 And now, hear the word of the lord! You say, Prophesy not over Israel! for in no way should you lead a mob against the house of Jacob. 17 On account of this, thus says the lord, Your wife [2in 3the 4city 1shall commit harlotry]; and your sons and your daughters [2by 3the broadsword 1shall fall]; and your land [2by 3a measuring line 1shall be measured out]; and you [2in 4land 3an unclean 1shall come to an end]; and Israel [2captive 1shall be led] from his land.
