Amos/Amos 2:6 - 3:8
6 So said Hashem - For three rebellious sins of Israel — but should I not exact retribution for the fourth — for their having sold a righteous man for silver, and a destitute one for the sake of a pair of shoes? 7 Those who yearn that the dust of the earth be upon the head of the poor, who twist the way of the humble! A man and his father come to the same [betrothed] maiden, thereby profaning My Holy Name. 8 They recline on garments held as security, right next to every altar; and they drink wine bought with [unjustly levied] fines in the temple of their gods.
9 Yet I destroyed the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of cedars and who was as strong as oak trees; I destroyed its fruits from above and its roots from below. 10 And I brought you up from the land of Egypt and led you in the Wilderness for forty years to inherit the land of the Amorite. 11 From among your children I raised up prophets, and nazirites from your lads — is this not so, O Children of Israel? — the words of Hashem. 12 But you caused the nazirites to drink wine, and you commanded the prophets, saying, "Do not prophesy!"
13 Behold! — I press you down in your place, as a wagon is pressed down when it is filled with sheaves. 14 Flight will be lost to the fleet; the strong will not muster his courage; and the mighty will not escape with his life; 15 he that grasps the bow will not stand fast; the fleet-footed one will not escape; and the horseman will not escape with his life. 16 The most courageous of the heroes will flee naked on that day — the words of Hashem.
1 Hear this thing that Hashem has spoken about you, O Children of Israel, about the entire family that I have brought up from the land of Egypt, saying: 2 Only you have I loved of all the families of the earth, therefore will I recall upon you all your iniquities. 3 Would two people walk together unless they have so arranged? 4 Would a lion roar in the forest if he had no prey? Would a young lion raise his voice in his den unless he had a catch? 5 Would a bird fall into a snare on the ground if there were no trap for it? Would a trap rise up from the ground unless it had made a catch? 6 If the shofar-alarm would sound in the city, would the people not tremble? Could there be misfortune in a city if Hashem had not caused it? 7 For my Lord Hashem/Elohim will do nothing without having revealed his secret to His servants the prophets.
8 A lion has roared — who would not fear? My Lord Hashem/Elohim has spoken — who would not prophesy?
