A basket of fruit

1The Lord God showed me a basket of ripe fruit

2and asked, “Amos, what do you see?” “A basket of ripe fruit,” I replied. Then he said, “This is the end for my people Israel. I won't forgive them again.

3Instead of singing in the temple, they will cry and weep. Dead bodies will be everywhere. So keep silent! I, the Lord, have spoken!”

Israel is doomed

4The Lord said: You people crush those in need and wipe out the poor.

5You say to yourselves, “How much longer before the end of the New Moon Festival? When will the Sabbath be over? Our wheat is ready, and we want to sell it now. We can't wait to cheat and charge high prices for the grain we sell. We will use dishonest scales

6and mix dust in the grain. Those who are needy and poor don't have any money. We will make them our slaves for the price of a pair of sandals.”

7I, the Lord, won't forget any of this, though you take great pride in your ancestor Jacob.

8Your country will tremble, and you will mourn. It will be like the River Nile that rises and overflows, then sinks back down.

9On that day, I, the Lord God, will make the sun go down at midday, and I will turn daylight into darkness.

10Your festivals and joyful singing will turn into sorrow. You will wear sackcloth and shave your heads, as you would at the death of your only son. It will be a horrible day.

11I, the Lord, also promise you a terrible shortage, but not of food and water. You will hunger and thirst to hear my message.

12You will search everywhere— from north to south, from east to west. You will go all over the earth, seeking a message from me, the Lord. But you won't find one.

13Your beautiful young women and your young men will faint from thirst.

14You made promises in the name of Ashimah, the goddess of Samaria. And you made vows in my name at the shrines of Dan and Beersheba. But you will fall and never get up.
