(Amo 7:1) Thus hath the Lord God shewed unto 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.
(Amo 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.
(Amo 7:3) The Lord repented for this: It shall not be, saith the Lord.
(Amo 7:4) Thus hath the Lord God shewed unto me: and, behold, the Lord God called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part.
(Amo 7:5) Then said I, O Lord God, cease, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he {is} small.
(Amo 7:6) The Lord repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord God.
(Amo 7:7) Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall {made} by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.
(Amo 7:8) And the Lord said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more:
(Amo 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.
(Amo 7:10) Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel 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.
(Amo 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.
(Amo 7:12) Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:
(Amo 7:13) But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it {is} the king's chapel, and it {is} the king's court.
(Amo 7:14) Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I {was} no prophet, neither {was} I a prophet's son; but I {was} an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:
(Amo 7:15) And the Lord took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.
(Amo 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.
(Amo 7:17) Therefore thus saith the Lord; Thy wife shall be an 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 into captivity forth of his land.
