1The words of Amos, who was among the shepherds of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Yisroel in the yamim of Uziyah Melech Yehudah, and in the yamim of Yarov`am ben Yoash Melech Yisroel, two years before the earthquake. 2And he said, Hashem roars from Tziyon, and utters His voice from Yerushalayim; and the pastures of the ro'im (shepherds) mourn, and the summit of Mt Carmel withers. 3Thus saith Hashem: For shloshah peysha'im of Damascus, even for arba'ah, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gil`ad with threshing sledges of barzel (iron); 4But I will send an eish onto Bais Chatzael, which shall devour the fortresses of Ben-hadad. 5I will break down also the gate bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from Bikeat-Aven, and him that holdeth the shevet (sceptre) from Bais Eden; and the people of Aram shall go into golus unto Kir, saith Hashem. 6Thus saith Hashem: For shloshah peysha'im of Azah (Gaza), even for arba'ah, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the golus shleimah (entire exiled population), to deliver them up to Edom; 7But I will send an eish on the chomah (wall) of Azah (Gaza), which shall devour the fortresses thereof; 8And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the shevet (sceptre) from Ashkelon, and I will turn Mine hand against Ekron; and the she'erit Pelishtim shall perish, saith Adonoi Hashem. 9Thus saith Hashem: For shloshah peysha'im of Tzor, even for arba'ah, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the golus shleimah to Edom, and remembered not the brit achim; 10But I will send an eish on the chomah (wall) of Tzor, which shall devour the fortresses thereof. 11Thus saith Hashem: For shloshah peysha'im of Edom, even for arba'ah, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did pursue his brother with the cherev, and did cast off all rachamim, and his anger did rage perpetually, and he kept his wrath netzach; 12But I will send an eish upon Teman, which shall devour the fortresses of Botzrah. 13Thus saith Hashem: For shloshah peysha'im of the Bnei Ammon, even for arba'ah, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped open the women with child of Gil`ad, that they might enlarge their border; 14But I will kindle an eish in the chomah (wall) of Rabbah, and it shall devour the fortresses thereof, with war cries in the yom milchamah, with a tempest in the yom sufah (day of the storm); 15And their melech shall go into golus, he and his sarim (princes) together, saith Hashem.
