Amos 1 - Hebrew Names version (HNV)

1. The words of `Amos, who was among the herdsmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Yisra'el in the days of `Uzziyah king of Yehudah, and in the days of Yarov`am the son of Yo'ash king of Yisra'el, two years before the earthquake.

2. He said: *The LORD will roar from Tziyon, and utter his voice from Yerushalayim; and the pastures of the shepherds will mourn, and the top of Karmel will wither.*

Judgment on the Nations

3. Thus says the LORD: *For three transgressions of Damascus, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because they have threshed Gil`ad with threshing instruments of iron;

4. but I will send a fire into the house of Chaza'el, and it will devour the palaces of Ben-Hadad.

5. I will break the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the valley of Aven, and him who holds the scepter from the house of `Eden; and the people of Syria shall go into captivity to Kir,* says the LORD.

6. Thus says the LORD: *For three transgressions of `Aza, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because they carried away captive the whole community, to deliver them up to Edom;

7. but I will send a fire on the wall of `Aza, and it will devour its palaces.

8. I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him who holds the scepter from Ashkelon; and I will turn my hand against `Ekron; and the remnant of the Pelishtim will perish,* says the Lord GOD.

9. Thus says the LORD: *For three transgressions of Tzor, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because they delivered up the whole community to Edom, and didn't remember the brotherly covenant;

10. but I will send a fire on the wall of Tzor, and it will devour its palaces.*

11. Thus says the LORD: *For three transgressions of Edom, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because he pursued his brother with the sword, and cast off all pity, and his anger raged continually, and he kept his wrath forever;

12. but I will send a fire on Teman, and it will devour the palaces of Botzrah.*

13. Thus says the LORD: *For three transgressions of the children of `Ammon, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because they have ripped open the pregnant women of Gil`ad, that they may enlarge their border.

14. But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it will devour its palaces, with shouting in the day of battle, with a storm in the day of the whirlwind;

15. and their king will go into captivity, he and his princes together,* says the LORD.
