Amos 5:6 New International Version (NIV)
6 Seek the Lord and live,
Amos 5:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 Seek the Lord, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel.
Amos 5:7 King James Version (KJV)
7 Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth,
Amos 5:10-15 New International Version (NIV)
10 There are those who hate the one who upholds justice in court
11 You levy a straw tax on the poor
There are those who oppress the innocent and take bribes
14 Seek good, not evil,
Amos 5:10-15 King James Version (KJV)
10 They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.
11 Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor, and ye take from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine of them.
12 For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right.
13 Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time.
14 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.
15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
