Amos 9:1-3 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

The Destruction of Israel

I saw the Lord standing beside[a] the altar, and he said:

Strike the capitals until the thresholds shake,
    and shatter them on the heads of all the people;[b]
and those who are left I will kill with the sword;
    not one of them shall flee away,
    not one of them shall escape.

Though they dig into Sheol,
    from there shall my hand take them;
though they climb up to heaven,
    from there I will bring them down.
Though they hide themselves on the top of Carmel,
    from there I will search out and take them;
and though they hide from my sight at the bottom of the sea,
    there I will command the sea-serpent, and it shall bite them.
