The Basket of Fruit

This is what the Lord God showed me—a basket of summer fruit.[a] He said, ‘Amos, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘A basket of summer fruit.’[b] Then the Lord said to me,

‘The end[c] has come upon my people Israel;
    I will never again pass them by.
The songs of the temple[d] shall become wailings on that day,’
says the Lord God;
‘the dead bodies shall be many,
    cast out in every place. Be silent!’
