Amos 2:7-9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“These who [a]pant after the very dust of the earth on the head of the helpless
Also turn aside the way of the humble;
And a man and his father [b]resort to the same [c]girl
In order to profane My holy name.
“On garments taken as pledges they stretch out beside every altar,
And in the house of their God they drink the wine of those who have been fined.

“Yet it was I who destroyed the Amorite before them,
[d]Though his height was like the height of cedars
And he was strong as the oaks;
I even destroyed his fruit above and his root below.

Amos 2:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

They trample on the heads of the poor
    as on the dust of the ground
    and deny justice to the oppressed.
Father and son use the same girl
    and so profane my holy name.
They lie down beside every altar
    on garments taken in pledge.
In the house of their god
    they drink wine taken as fines.

“Yet I destroyed the Amorites before them,
    though they were tall as the cedars
    and strong as the oaks.
I destroyed their fruit above
    and their roots below.
