New King James Version
New American Standard Bible
14 Seek good and not evil, so that you may live;
And so may the Lord God of armies be with you,
(A)Just as you have said!
15 (B)Hate evil, love good,
And establish justice in the [a]gate!
Perhaps the Lord God of armies
(C)Will be gracious to the (D)remnant of Joseph.
- Amos 5:15 I.e., the place where court was held
Seek (long for, require) good and not evil, that you may live;
And so may the Lord God of hosts be with you,
Just as you have said!
Hate evil and love good,
And establish justice in the [court of the city] gate.
Perhaps the Lord God of hosts
Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph [that is, those who remain after God’s judgment].
