Amos 9:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
Vision of the Lord Standing by the Altar
9 I saw the Lord standing by the altar, and he said,
“Hit the top of the columns,
and shake them to the ground.
Push them and they will fall
on everyone’s head.
As for those who survive,
I will kill them with a sword.
None of them will run away.
None of them will escape.
2 If they dig deep into the ground,
I will pull them from there.
If they go up into the skies,
I will bring them down from there.
3 If they hide at the top of Mount Carmel,
I will find them there and take them from that place.
If they try to hide from me at the bottom of the sea,
I will command the snake, and it will bite them.
