Amos 7


7:1 Thus hath the Lord GOD shown to me; and behold, he formed
 grasshoppers in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter
 growth; and lo, [it was] the latter growth after the king's
 mowings.
7:2 And it came to pass, [that] when they had made an end of
 eating the grass of the land, then I said, O Lord GOD, forgive,
 I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he [is] small.
7:3 The LORD repented for this: It shall not be, saith the LORD.
7:4 Thus hath the Lord GOD shown to me: and behold, the Lord GOD
 called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and
 did eat up a part.
7:5 Then said I, O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee: by whom
 shall Jacob arise? for he [is] small.
7:6 The LORD repented for this: This also shall not be, saith
 the Lord GOD.
7:7 Thus he showed me: and behold, the LORD stood upon a wall
 [made] by a plumb-line, with a plumb-line in his hand.
7:8 And the LORD said to me, Amos, what seest thou? and I said,
 A plumb-line. Then said the LORD, Behold, I will set a
 plumb-line in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again
 pass by them any more:
7:9 And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the
 sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise
 against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.
7:10 Then Amaziah the priest of Beth-el sent to Jeroboam king of
 Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst
 of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his
 words.
7:11 For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and
 Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.
7:12 Also Amaziah said to Amos, O thou seer, go flee thee away
 into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy
 there:
7:13 But prophesy not again any more at Beth-el: for it [is] the
 king's chapel, and it [is] the king's court.
7:14 Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I [was] no
 prophet, neither [was] I a prophet's son; but I [was] a
 herdman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruit:
7:15 And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD
 said to me, Go, prophesy to my people Israel.
7:16 Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD: Thou sayest,
 Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not [thy word] against
 the house of Isaac.
7:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Thy wife shall be a harlot
 in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the
 sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt
 die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go from his
 land into captivity.
