The Vision of a Fruit Basket

This is what the Lord God showed me: Look! A basket of summer fruit! And he was asking, “What do you see, Amos?”

I answered, “A basket of summer fruit.”

Then the Lord told me,

“The end[a] approaches for my people Israel.
    I will no longer spare them.[b]
At that time,”
    declares the Lord God,
“the temple songs will be wailing.
    Many bodies will accumulate everywhere.
