Amos 5 New King James Version (NKJV)
A Lament for Israel
5 Hear this word which I take up against you, a lamentation, O house of Israel:
2 The virgin of Israel has fallen;
3 For thus says the Lord God:
“The city that goes out by a thousand
A Call to Repentance
4 For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel:
“Seek Me and live;
8 He made the Pleiades and Orion;
10 They hate the one who rebukes in the gate,
14 Seek good and not evil,
The Day of the Lord
16 Therefore the Lord God of hosts, the Lord, says this:
“There shall be wailing in all streets,
18 Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord!
21 “I hate, I despise your feast days,
25 “Did you offer Me sacrifices and offerings
Amos 6 New King James Version (NKJV)
Warnings to Zion and Samaria
6 Woe to you who are at ease in Zion,
3 Woe to you who put far off the day of doom,
8 The Lord God has sworn by Himself,
9 Then it shall come to pass, that if ten men remain in one house, they shall die. 10 And when [a]a relative of the dead, with one who will burn the bodies, picks up the [b]bodies to take them out of the house, he will say to one inside the house, “Are there any more with you?”
Then someone will say, “None.”
And he will say, “Hold your tongue! For we dare not mention the name of the Lord.”
11 For behold, the Lord gives a command:
12 Do horses run on rocks?
14 “But, behold, I will raise up a nation against you,
Amos 7:1-9 New King James Version (NKJV)
Vision of the Locusts
7 Thus the Lord God showed me: Behold, He formed locust swarms at the [a]beginning of the late crop; indeed it was the late crop after the king’s mowings. 2 And so it was, when they had finished eating the grass of the land, that I said:
“O Lord God, forgive, I pray!
Vision of the Fire
“O Lord God, cease, I pray!
Vision of the Plumb Line
7 Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand. 8 And the Lord said to me, “Amos, what do you see?”
And I said, “A plumb line.”
Then the Lord said:
“Behold, I am setting a plumb line

Vision of the Summer Fruit
8 Thus the Lord God showed me: Behold, a basket of summer fruit. 2 And He said, “Amos, what do you see?”
So I said, “A basket of summer fruit.”
Then the Lord said to me:
“The end has come upon My people Israel;
4 Hear this, you who [a]swallow up the needy,
“When will the New Moon be past,
7 The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob:
9 “And it shall come to pass in that day,” says the Lord God,

13 “In that day the fair virgins
Amos 9 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Destruction of Israel
9 I saw the Lord standing by the altar, and He said:
“Strike the [a]doorposts, that the thresholds may shake,
2 “Though they dig into [b]hell,
5 The Lord God of hosts,
8 “Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are on the sinful kingdom,
