Amos (Book of Amos), Chapter 9

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 I saw the L-rd standing beside the altar; and He said: Smite the capitals, that the posts may shake; and break them in pieces on the head of all of them; and I will slay the residue of them with the sword; there shall not one of them flee away, and there shall not one of them escape.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Though they dig into the nether-world, thence shall My hand take them; and though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from My sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them; and I will set Mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 For the L-rd, the GOD of hosts, is He that toucheth the land and it melteth, and all that dwell therein mourn; and it riseth up wholly like the River, and sinketh again, like the River of Egypt;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 It is He that buildeth His upper chambers in the heaven, and hath founded His vault upon the earth; He that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth; HaShem is His name.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Are ye not as the children of the Ethiopians unto Me, O children of Israel? saith HaShem. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt, and the Philistines from Caphtor, and Aram from Kir?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Behold, the eyes of the L-rd GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all the nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword, that say: 'The evil shall not overtake nor confront us.'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof, and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and all the nations, upon whom My name is called, saith HaShem that doeth this.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Behold, the days come, saith HaShem, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 And I will turn the captivity of My people Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be plucked up out of their land which I have given them, saith HaShem thy G-d.
