Amos (Book of Amos), Chapter 4

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Hear this word, ye kine of Bashan, that are in the mountain of Samaria, that oppress the poor, that crush the needy, that say unto their lords: 'Bring, that we may feast.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 The L-rd GOD hath sworn by His holiness: Lo, surely the days shall come upon you, that ye shall be taken away with hooks, and your residue with fish-hooks.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 And ye shall go out at the breaches, every one straight before her; and ye shall be cast into Harmon, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Come to Beth-el, and transgress, to Gilgal, and multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices in the morning, and your tithes after three days;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving of that which is leavened, and proclaim freewill-offerings and publish them; for so ye love to do, O ye children of Israel, saith the L-rd GOD.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places; yet have ye not returned unto Me, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And I also have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest; and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city; one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 So two or three cities wandered unto one city to drink water, and were not satisfied; yet have ye not returned unto Me, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 I have smitten you with blasting and mildew; the multitude of your gardens and your vineyards and your fig-trees and your olive-trees hath the palmer-worm devoured; yet have ye not returned unto Me, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 I have sent among you the pestilence in the way of Egypt; your young men have I slain with the sword, and have carried away your horses; and I have made the stench of your camp to come up even into your nostrils; yet have ye not returned unto Me, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 I have overthrown some of you, as G-d overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a brand plucked out of the burning; yet have ye not returned unto Me, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel; because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy G-d, O Israel.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 For, lo, He that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth; HaShem, the G-d of hosts, is His name.
