Amos 7
NMV
7
1Thus has the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER) showed 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.
2And it came to pass, [that] when they had made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said, O Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER), forgive, I beseech (to call upon; appeal; beg) youi: by whom shall Ya’akov [Heal of God] arise? for he [is] small.
3The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) repented for this: It shall not be, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
4Thus has the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER) showed unto me: and, behold, the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER) called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part.
5Then said I, O Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER), cease, I beseech (to call upon; appeal; beg) youi: by whom shall Ya’akov [Heal of God] arise? for he [is] small.
6The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) repented for this: This also shall not be, says the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER).
7Thus he showed me: and, behold, the Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things] stood upon a wall [made] by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.
8And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto me, ‘Amos [burden], what see youi? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things], Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: I will not again pass by them any more:
9And the high places of Yitz’khak [Laughter] shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Yarov’am [the people will contend] with the sword.
10Then Amatzyah [Yehovah is mighty] the priest of Beit-El [House of God] sent to Yarov’am [the people will contend] king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], saying, ‘Amos [burden] has conspired against youi in the midst of the house of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: the land is not able to bear all his words.
11For thus ‘Amos [burden] says, Yarov’am [the people will contend] shall die by the sword, and Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.
12Also Amatzyah [Yehovah is mighty] said unto ‘Amos [burden], O youi seer, go, flee youi away into the land of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], and there eat bread, and prophesy there:
13But prophesy not again any more at Beit-El [House of God]: for it [is] the king’s chapel, and it [is] the king’s court.
14Then answered ‘Amos [burden], and said to Amatzyah [Yehovah is mighty], I [was] no prophet, neither [was] I a prophet’s son; but I [was] an herdman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruit:
15And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
16Now therefore hear youi the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): youi say, Prophesy not against Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], and drop not [youri word] against the house of Yitz’khak [Laughter].
17Therefore thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); You1s wife shall be an prostitute in the city, and youri sons and youri daughters shall fall by the sword, and youi land shall be divided by line; and youi shall die in a polluted land: and Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.
