Amos 2:8-10 Modern English Version (MEV)
8 They recline by every altar
on garments taken in pledge,
and in the house of their gods
they drink the wine from those who have been fined.
9 Yet it was I who destroyed the Amorite before them,
whose height was like the height of the cedars.
He was strong as the oaks,
yet I destroyed his fruit above
and his roots below.
10 It was I who brought you up from the land of Egypt,
and led you forty years through the wilderness,
to possess the land of the Amorite.
