Amos 5


1  Hear8085 ye 853 this2088 word1697 which834 I595 take up5375 against5921 you, even a lamentation,7015 O house1004 of Israel.3478

2  The virgin1330 of Israel3478 is fallen;5307 she shall no3808 more3254 rise:6965 she is forsaken5203 upon5921 her land;127 there is none369 to raise her up.6965

3  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 The city5892 that went out3318 by a thousand505 shall leave7604 a hundred,3967 and that which went forth3318 by a hundred3967 shall leave7604 ten,6235 to the house1004 of Israel.3478

4  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 unto the house1004 of Israel,3478 Seek1875 ye me, and ye shall live:2421

5  But seek1875 not408 Bethel,1008 nor3808 enter935 into Gilgal,1537 and pass5674 not3808 to Beer-sheba:884 for3588 Gilgal1537 shall surely go into captivity,1540 1540 and Bethel1008 shall come1961 to naught.205

6  Seek1875 853 the LORD,3068 and ye shall live;2421 lest6435 he break out6743 like fire784 in the house1004 of Joseph,3130 and devour398 it, and there be none369 to quench3518 it in Bethel.1008

7  Ye who turn2015 judgment4941 to wormwood,3939 and leave off5117 righteousness6666 in the earth,776

8  Seek him that maketh6213 the seven stars3598 and Orion,3685 and turneth2015 the shadow of death6757 into the morning,1242 and maketh the day dark2821 3117 with night:3915 that calleth7121 for the waters4325 of the sea,3220 and poureth them out8210 upon5921 the face6440 of the earth:776 The LORD3068 is his name:8034

9  That strengtheneth1082 the spoiled7701 against5921 the strong,5974 so that the spoiled7701 shall come935 against5921 the fortress.4013

10  They hate8130 him that rebuketh3198 in the gate,8179 and they abhor8581 him that speaketh1696 uprightly.8549

11  Forasmuch3282 therefore3651 as your treading1318 is upon5921 the poor,1800 and ye take3947 from4480 him burdens4864 of wheat:1250 ye have built1129 houses1004 of hewn stone,1496 but ye shall not3808 dwell3427 in them; ye have planted5193 pleasant2531 vineyards,3754 but ye shall not3808 drink8354 853 wine3196 of them.

12  For3588 I know3045 your manifold7227 transgressions6588 and your mighty6099 sins:2403 they afflict6887 the just,6662 they take3947 a bribe,3724 and they turn aside5186 the poor34 in the gate8179 from their right.

13  Therefore3651 the prudent7919 shall keep silence1826 in that1931 time;6256 for3588 it1931 is an evil7451 time.6256

14  Seek1875 good,2896 and not408 evil,7451 that4616 ye may live:2421 and so3651 the LORD,3068 the God430 of hosts,6635 shall be1961 with854 you, as834 ye have spoken.559

15  Hate8130 the evil,7451 and love157 the good,2896 and establish3322 judgment4941 in the gate:8179 it may be194 that the LORD3068 God430 of hosts6635 will be gracious2603 unto the remnant7611 of Joseph.3130

16  Therefore3651 the LORD,3068 the God430 of hosts,6635 the Lord,136 saith559 thus;3541 Wailing4553 shall be in all3605 streets;7339 and they shall say559 in all3605 the highways,2351 Alas!1930 alas!1930 and they shall call7121 the husbandman406 to413 mourning,60 and such as are skillful3045 of lamentation5092 to413 wailing.4553

17  And in all3605 vineyards3754 shall be wailing:4553 for3588 I will pass5674 through7130 thee, saith559 the LORD.3068

18  Woe1945 unto you that desire183 853 the day3117 of the LORD!3068 to what end4100 is it2088 for you? the day3117 of the LORD3068 is darkness,2822 and not3808 light.216

19  As if834 a man376 did flee5127 from4480 6440 a lion,738 and a bear1677 met6293 him; or went935 into the house,1004 and leaned5564 his hand3027 on5921 the wall,7023 and a serpent5175 bit5391 him.

20  Shall not3808 the day3117 of the LORD3068 be darkness,2822 and not3808 light?216 even very dark,651 and no3808 brightness5051 in it?

21  I hate,8130 I despise3988 your feast days,2282 and I will not3808 smell7306 in your solemn assemblies.6116

22  Though3588 518 ye offer5927 me burnt offerings5930 and your meat offerings,4503 I will not3808 accept7521 them: neither3808 will I regard5027 the peace offerings8002 of your fat beasts.4806

23  Take thou away5493 from4480 5921 me the noise1995 of thy songs;7892 for I will not3808 hear8085 the melody2172 of thy viols.5035

24  But let judgment4941 run down1556 as waters,4325 and righteousness6666 as a mighty386 stream.5158

25  Have ye offered5066 unto me sacrifices2077 and offerings4503 in the wilderness4057 forty705 years,8141 O house1004 of Israel?3478

26  But ye have borne5375 853 the tabernacle5522 of your Moloch4432 and Chiun3594 your images,6754 the star3556 of your god,430 which834 ye made6213 to yourselves.

27  Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity1540 beyond4480 1973 Damascus,1834 saith559 the LORD,3068 whose name8034 is The God430 of hosts.6635


1 ἀκούσατε τὸν λόγον κυρίου τοῦτον ὃν ἐγὼ λαμβάνω ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς θρῆνον οἶκος Ισραηλ

2 ἔπεσεν οὐκέτι μὴ προσθῇ τοῦ ἀναστῆναι παρθένος τοῦ Ισραηλ ἔσφαλεν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς αὐτῆς οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ ἀναστήσων αὐτήν

3 διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος κύριος ἡ πόλις ἐξ ἧς ἐξεπορεύοντο χίλιοι ὑπολειφθήσονται ἑκατόν καὶ ἐξ ἧς ἐξεπορεύοντο ἑκατόν ὑπολειφθήσονται δέκα τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ

4 διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος πρὸς τὸν οἶκον Ισραηλ ἐκζητήσατέ με καὶ ζήσεσθε

5 καὶ μὴ ἐκζητεῖτε Βαιθηλ καὶ εἰς Γαλγαλα μὴ εἰσπορεύεσθε καὶ ἐπὶ τὸ φρέαρ τοῦ ὅρκου μὴ διαβαίνετε ὅτι Γαλγαλα αἰχμαλωτευομένη αἰχμαλωτευθήσεται καὶ Βαιθηλ ἔσται ὡς οὐχ ὑπάρχουσα

6 ἐκζητήσατε τὸν κύριον καὶ ζήσατε ὅπως μὴ ἀναλάμψῃ ὡς πῦρ ὁ οἶκος Ιωσηφ καὶ καταφάγεται αὐτόν καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ σβέσων τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ

7 κύριος ὁ ποιῶν εἰς ὕψος κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην εἰς γῆν ἔθηκεν

8 ποιῶν πάντα καὶ μετασκευάζων καὶ ἐκτρέπων εἰς τὸ πρωὶ σκιὰν θανάτου καὶ ἡμέραν εἰς νύκτα συσκοτάζων ὁ προσκαλούμενος τὸ ὕδωρ τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἐκχέων αὐτὸ ἐπὶ προσώπου τῆς γῆς κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ παντοκράτωρ ὄνομα αὐτῷ

9 ὁ διαιρῶν συντριμμὸν ἐπ᾽ ἰσχὺν καὶ ταλαιπωρίαν ἐπὶ ὀχύρωμα ἐπάγων

10 ἐμίσησαν ἐν πύλαις ἐλέγχοντα καὶ λόγον ὅσιον ἐβδελύξαντο

11 διὰ τοῦτο ἀνθ᾽ ὧν κατεκονδυλίζετε πτωχοὺς καὶ δῶρα ἐκλεκτὰ ἐδέξασθε παρ᾽ αὐτῶν οἴκους ξυστοὺς ᾠκοδομήσατε καὶ οὐ μὴ κατοικήσητε ἐν αὐτοῖς ἀμπελῶνας ἐπιθυμητοὺς ἐφυτεύσατε καὶ οὐ μὴ πίητε τὸν οἶνον ἐξ αὐτῶν

12 ὅτι ἔγνων πολλὰς ἀσεβείας ὑμῶν καὶ ἰσχυραὶ αἱ ἁμαρτίαι ὑμῶν καταπατοῦντες δίκαιον λαμβάνοντες ἀλλάγματα καὶ πένητας ἐν πύλαις ἐκκλίνοντες

13 διὰ τοῦτο ὁ συνίων ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ σιωπήσεται ὅτι καιρὸς πονηρός ἐστιν

14 ἐκζητήσατε τὸ καλὸν καὶ μὴ τὸ πονηρόν ὅπως ζήσητε καὶ ἔσται οὕτως μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ παντοκράτωρ ὃν τρόπον εἴπατε

15 μεμισήκαμεν τὰ πονηρὰ καὶ ἠγαπήκαμεν τὰ καλά καὶ ἀποκαταστήσατε ἐν πύλαις κρίμα ὅπως ἐλεήσῃ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ παντοκράτωρ τοὺς περιλοίπους τοῦ Ιωσηφ

16 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ παντοκράτωρ ἐν πάσαις πλατείαις κοπετός καὶ ἐν πάσαις ὁδοῖς ῥηθήσεται οὐαὶ οὐαί κληθήσεται γεωργὸς εἰς πένθος καὶ κοπετὸν καὶ εἰς εἰδότας θρῆνον

17 καὶ ἐν πάσαις ὁδοῖς κοπετός διότι διελεύσομαι διὰ μέσου σου εἶπεν κύριος

18 οὐαὶ οἱ ἐπιθυμοῦντες τὴν ἡμέραν κυρίου ἵνα τί αὕτη ὑμῖν ἡ ἡμέρα τοῦ κυρίου καὶ αὐτή ἐστιν σκότος καὶ οὐ φῶς

19 ὃν τρόπον ὅταν φύγῃ ἄνθρωπος ἐκ προσώπου τοῦ λέοντος καὶ ἐμπέσῃ αὐτῷ ἡ ἄρκος καὶ εἰσπηδήσῃ εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπερείσηται τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν τοῖχον καὶ δάκῃ αὐτὸν ὁ ὄφις

20 οὐχὶ σκότος ἡ ἡμέρα τοῦ κυρίου καὶ οὐ φῶς καὶ γνόφος οὐκ ἔχων φέγγος αὐτῇ

21 μεμίσηκα ἀπῶσμαι ἑορτὰς ὑμῶν καὶ οὐ μὴ ὀσφρανθῶ ἐν ταῖς πανηγύρεσιν ὑμῶν

22 διότι καὶ ἐὰν ἐνέγκητέ μοι ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ θυσίας ὑμῶν οὐ προσδέξομαι αὐτά καὶ σωτηρίου ἐπιφανείας ὑμῶν οὐκ ἐπιβλέψομαι

23 μετάστησον ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἦχον ᾠδῶν σου καὶ ψαλμὸν ὀργάνων σου οὐκ ἀκούσομαι

24 καὶ κυλισθήσεται ὡς ὕδωρ κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνη ὡς χειμάρρους ἄβατος

25 μὴ σφάγια καὶ θυσίας προσηνέγκατέ μοι ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη οἶκος Ισραηλ

26 καὶ ἀνελάβετε τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ Μολοχ καὶ τὸ ἄστρον τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν Ραιφαν τοὺς τύπους αὐτῶν οὓς ἐποιήσατε ἑαυτοῖς

27 καὶ μετοικιῶ ὑμᾶς ἐπέκεινα Δαμασκοῦ λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ παντοκράτωρ ὄνομα αὐτῷ

1 [Audite verbum istud,
quod ego levo super vos planctum:
domus Israël cecidit,
et non adjiciet ut resurgat.

2 Virgo Israël projecta est in terram suam,
non est qui suscitet eam.

3 Quia hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Urbs de qua egrediebantur mille,
relinquentur in ea centum;
et de qua egrediebantur centum,
relinquentur in ea decem in domo Israël.

4 Quia hæc dicit Dominus domui Israël:
Quærite me, et vivetis.

5 Et nolite quærere Bethel,
et in Galgalam nolite intrare,
et in Bersabee non transibitis,
quia Galgala captiva ducetur,
et Bethel erit inutilis.

6 Quærite Dominum, et vivite
(ne forte comburatur ut ignis domus Joseph, et devorabit,
et non erit qui extinguat Bethel:

7 qui convertitis in absinthium judicium,
et justitiam in terra relinquitis):

8 facientem Arcturum et Orionem,
et convertentem in mane tenebras,
et diem in noctem mutantem;
qui vocat aquas maris,
et effundit eas super faciem terræ;
Dominus nomen est ejus:

9 qui subridet vastitatem super robustum,
et depopulationem super potentem affert.

10 Odio habuerunt corripientem in porta,
et loquentem perfecte abominati sunt.

11 Idcirco, pro eo quod diripiebatis pauperem,
et prædam electam tollebatis ab eo,
domos quadro lapide ædificabitis,
et non habitabitis in eis;
vineas plantabis amantissimas,
et non bibetis vinum earum.

12 Quia cognovi multa scelera vestra,
et fortia peccata vestra:
hostes justi, accipientes munus,
et pauperes deprimentes in porta.

13 Ideo prudens in tempore illo tacebit,
quia tempus malum est.

14 Quærite bonum, et non malum, ut vivatis;
et erit Dominus Deus exercituum vobiscum, sicut dixistis.

15 Odite malum et diligite bonum,
et constituite in porta judicium:
si forte misereatur Dominus Deus exercituum reliquiis Joseph.

16 Propterea hæc dicit Dominus Deus exercituum, dominator:
In omnibus plateis planctus;
et in cunctis quæ foris sunt, dicetur: Væ, væ!
et vocabunt agricolam ad luctum,
et ad planctum eos qui sciunt plangere.

17 Et in omnibus vineis erit planctus,
quia pertransibo in medio tui,
dicit Dominus.]

18 [Væ desiderantibus diem Domini!
ad quid eam vobis?
Dies Domini ista, tenebræ, et non lux.

19 Quomodo si fugiat vir a facie leonis,
et occurrat ei ursus;
et ingrediatur domum, et innitatur manu sua super parietem,
et mordeat eum coluber.

20 Numquid non tenebræ dies Domini, et non lux;
et caligo, et non splendor in ea?

21 Odi, et projeci festivitates vestras,
et non capiam odorem cœtuum vestrorum.

22 Quod si obtuleritis mihi holocautomata, et munera vestra,
non suscipiam;
et vota pinguium vestrorum non respiciam.

23 Aufer a me tumultum carminum tuorum;
et cantica lyræ tuæ non audiam.

24 Et revelabitur quasi aqua judicium,
et justitia quasi torrens fortis.

25 Numquid hostias et sacrificium obtulistis mihi
in deserto quadraginta annis, domus Israël?

26 et portastis tabernaculum Moloch vestro,
et imaginem idolorum vestrorum, sidus dei vestri,
quæ fecistis vobis.

27 Et migrare vos faciam trans Damascum, dicit Dominus:
Deus exercituum nomen ejus.]
