Amos 9 (WEBP)

[1] I saw the Lord standing beside the altar, and he said, “Strike the tops of the pillars, that the thresholds may shake. Break them in pieces on the head of all of them. I will kill the last of them with the sword. Not one of them will flee away. Not one of them will escape.
[2] Though they dig into Sheol,° there my hand will take them; and though they climb up to heaven, there I will bring them down.
[3] Though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out from there; and though they be hidden from my sight in the bottom of the sea, there I will command the serpent, and it will bite them.
[4] Though they go into captivity before their enemies, there I will command the sword, and it will kill them. I will set my eyes on them for evil, and not for good.
[5] For the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, is he who touches the land and it melts, and all who dwell in it will mourn; and it will rise up wholly like the River, and will sink again, like the River of Egypt.
[6] It is he who builds his rooms in the heavens, and has founded his vault on the earth; he who calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out on the surface of the earth—Yahweh is his name.
[7] Are you not like the children of the Ethiopians to me, children of Israel?” says Yahweh. “Haven’t I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt, and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?
[8] Behold, the eyes of the Lord Yahweh are on the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the surface of the earth, except that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,” says Yahweh.
[9] “For behold, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all the nations as grain is sifted in a sieve, yet not the least kernel will fall on the earth.
[10] All the sinners of my people will die by the sword, who say, ‘Evil won’t overtake nor meet us.’
[11] In that day I will raise up the tent of David who is fallen and close up its breaches, and I will raise up its ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old,
[12] that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations who are called by my name,” says Yahweh who does this.
[13] “Behold, the days come,” says Yahweh, “that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the one treading grapes him who sows seed; and sweet wine will drip from the mountains, and flow from the hills.
[14] I will bring my people Israel back from captivity, and they will rebuild the ruined cities, and inhabit them; and they will plant vineyards, and drink wine from them. They shall also make gardens, and eat their fruit.
[15] I will plant them on their land, and they will no more be plucked up out of their land which I have given them,” says Yahweh your God.

Amos 9 (KJVS)

[1] I saw H7200 (8804) the Lord H136 standing H5324 (8737) upon the altar H4196: and he said H559 (8799), Smite H5221 (8685) the lintel of the door H3730, that the posts H5592 may shake H7493 (8799): and cut H1214 (8798) them in the head H7218, all of them; and I will slay H2026 (8799) the last H319 of them with the sword H2719: he that fleeth H5127 (8801) of them shall not flee away H5127 (8799), and he that escapeth H6412 of them shall not be delivered H4422 (8735).
[2] Though they dig H2864 (8799) into hell H7585, thence shall mine hand H3027 take H3947 (8799) them; though they climb up H5927 (8799) to heaven H8064, thence will I bring them down H3381 (8686):
[3] And though they hide H2244 (8735) themselves in the top H7218 of Carmel H3760, I will search H2664 (8762) and take them out H3947 (8804) thence; and though they be hid H5641 (8735) from my sight H5869 in the bottom H7172 of the sea H3220, thence will I command H6680 (8762) the serpent H5175, and he shall bite H5391 (8804) them:
[4] And though they go H3212 (8799) into captivity H7628 before H6440 their enemies H341 (8802), thence will I command H6680 (8762) the sword H2719, and it shall slay H2026 (8804) them: and I will set H7760 (8804) mine eyes H5869 upon them for evil H7451, and not for good H2896.
[5] And the Lord H136 GOD H3069 of hosts H6635 [is] he that toucheth H5060 (8802) the land H776, and it shall melt H4127 (8799), and all that dwell H3427 (8802) therein shall mourn H56 (8804): and it shall rise up H5927 (8804) wholly like a flood H2975; and shall be drowned H8257 (8804), as [by] the flood H2975 of Egypt H4714.
[6] [It is] he that buildeth H1129 (8802) his stories H4609 in the heaven H8064, and hath founded H3245 (8804) his troop H92 in the earth H776; he that calleth H7121 (8802) for the waters H4325 of the sea H3220, and poureth them out H8210 (8799) upon the face H6440 of the earth H776: The LORD H3068 [is] his name H8034.
[7] [Are] ye not as children H1121 of the Ethiopians H3569 unto me, O children H1121 of Israel H3478? saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068. Have not I brought up H5927 (8689) Israel H3478 out of the land H776 of Egypt H4714? and the Philistines H6430 from Caphtor H3731, and the Syrians H758 from Kir H7024?
[8] Behold, the eyes H5869 of the Lord H136 GOD H3069 [are] upon the sinful H2403 kingdom H4467, and I will destroy H8045 (8689) it from off the face H6440 of the earth H127; saving H657 that I will not utterly H8045 (8687) destroy H8045 (8686) the house H1004 of Jacob H3290, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[9] For, lo, I will command H6680 (8764), and I will sift H5128 (8689) the house H1004 of Israel H3478 among all nations H1471, like as [corn] is sifted H5128 (8735) in a sieve H3531, yet shall not the least grain H6872 fall H5307 (8799) upon the earth H776.
[10] All the sinners H2400 of my people H5971 shall die H4191 (8799) by the sword H2719, which say H559 (8802), The evil H7451 shall not overtake H5066 (8686) nor prevent H6923 (8686) us.
[11] In that day H3117 will I raise up H6965 (8686) the tabernacle H5521 of David H1732 that is fallen H5307 (8802), and close up H1443 (8804) the breaches H6556 thereof; and I will raise up H6965 (8686) his ruins H2034, and I will build H1129 (8804) it as in the days H3117 of old H5769:
[12] That they may possess H3423 (8799) the remnant H7611 of Edom H123, and of all the heathen H1471, which are called H7121 (8738) by my name H8034, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068 that doeth H6213 (8802) this.
[13] Behold, the days H3117 come H935 (8802), saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068, that the plowman H2790 (8802) shall overtake H5066 (8738) the reaper H7114 (8802), and the treader H1869 (8802) of grapes H6025 him that soweth H4900 (8802) seed H2233; and the mountains H2022 shall drop H5197 (8689) sweet wine H6071, and all the hills H1389 shall melt H4127 (8709).
[14] And I will bring again H7725 (8804) the captivity H7622 of my people H5971 of Israel H3478, and they shall build H1129 (8804) the waste H8074 (8737) cities H5892, and inhabit H3427 (8804) [them]; and they shall plant H5193 (8804) vineyards H3754, and drink H8354 (8804) the wine H3196 thereof; they shall also make H6213 (8804) gardens H1593, and eat H398 (8804) the fruit H6529 of them.
[15] And I will plant H5193 (8804) them upon their land H127, and they shall no more be pulled up H5428 (8735) out of their land H127 which I have given H5414 (8804) them, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 thy God H430.

Young’s Literal Translation

Amos 9 (YLT)

[1] I have seen the Lord standing by the altar, and He saith: ‘Smite the knob, and the thresholds shake, And cut them off by the head-all of them, And their posterity with a sword I do slay, Not flee to them doth the fleer, Nor escape to them doth a fugitive.
[2] If they dig through into sheol, From thence doth My hand take them, And if they go up the heavens, From thence I cause them to come down.
[3] And if they be hid in the top of Carmel, From thence I search out, and have taken them, And if they be hid from Mine eyes in the bottom of the sea, From thence I command the serpent, And it hath bitten them.
[4] And if they go into captivity before their enemies, From thence I command the sword, And it hath slain them, And I have set Mine eye on them for evil, And not for good.
[5] And it is the Lord, Jehovah of Hosts, Who is striking against the land, and it melteth, And mourned have all the inhabitants in it, And come up as a flood hath all of it, And it hath sunk-like the flood of Egypt.
[6] Who is building in the heavens His upper chambers; As to His troop, Upon earth He hath founded it, Who is calling for the waters of the sea, And poureth them out on the face of the land, Jehovah is His name.
[7] As sons of Cushim are ye not to Me? O sons of Israel-an affirmation of Jehovah. Israel did I not bring up out of the land of Egypt? And the Philistines from Caphtor, and Aram from Kir?
[8] Lo, the eyes of the Lord Jehovah are on the sinful kingdom, And I have destroyed it from off the face of the ground, Only, I destroy not utterly the house of Jacob, An affirmation of Jehovah.
[9] For lo, I am commanding, And I have shaken among all the nations the house of Israel, As one doth shake with a sieve, And there falleth not a grain to the earth.
[10] By sword die do all sinners of My people, Who are saying, ‘Not overtake, or go before, For our sakes, doth evil.’
[11] In that day I raise the tabernacle of David, that is fallen, And I have repaired their breaches, And its ruins I do raise up, And I have built it up as in days of old.
[12] So that they possess the remnant of Edom, And all the nations on whom My name is called, An affirmation of Jehovah-doer of this.
[13] Lo, days are coming-an affirmation of Jehovah, And come nigh hath the ploughman to the reaper, And the treader of grapes to the scatterer of seed, And the mountains have dropped juice, And all the hills do melt.
[14] And I have turned back to the captivity of My people Israel, And they have built desolate cities, and inhabited, And have planted vineyards, and drunk their wine, And made gardens, and eaten their fruit.
[15] And I have planted them on their own ground, And they are not plucked up any more from off their own ground, That I have given to them, said Jehovah thy God!
