*****************************************************************************
Amos 4(NKJV)

Amos 4:1 Hear this word, you cows of Bashan, who [are] on the mountain of Samaria, Who oppress the poor, who crush the needy, who say to your husbands, "Bring [wine,] let us drink!"

2 The Lord GOD has sworn by His holiness: "Behold, the days shall come upon you when He will take you away with fishhooks, and your posterity with fishhooks.

3 You will go out [through] broken [walls,] each one straight ahead of her, and you will be cast into Harmon," Says the LORD.

4 " Come to Bethel and transgress, At Gilgal multiply transgression; Bring your sacrifices every morning, your tithes every three days.

5 Offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, Proclaim [and] announce the freewill offerings; for this you love, [You] children of Israel!" Says the Lord GOD.

6 Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities. And lack of bread in all your places; yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.

7 I also withheld rain from you, When [there were] still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city; I withheld rain from another city. One part was rained upon, and where it did not rain the part withered.

8 So two [or] three cities wandered to another city to drink water, but they were not satisfied; yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.

9 I blasted you with blight and mildew. When your gardens increased, your vineyards, your fig trees, and your olive trees, the locust devoured [them;] yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.

10 I sent among you a plague after the manner of Egypt; your young men I killed with a sword, along with your captive horses; I made the stench of your camps come up into your nostrils; yet you have not returned to Me," says the LORD.

11 "I overthrew [some] of you, As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning; yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.

12 Therefore thus will I do to you, O Israel; because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your God, O Israel!"

13 For behold, He who forms mountains, and creates the wind, who declares to man what his thought [is,] and makes the morning darkness, who treads the high places of the earth -- The LORD God of hosts [is] His name.
