Amos 9:12-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom,
    and all nations claimed in my name—
    oracle of the Lord, the one who does this.
13 Yes, days are coming—
    oracle of the Lord
When the one who plows shall overtake the one who reaps
    and the vintager, the sower of the seed;
The mountains shall drip with the juice of grapes,
    and all the hills shall run with it.
14 I will restore my people Israel,
    they shall rebuild and inhabit their ruined cities,
Plant vineyards and drink[a] the wine,
    set out gardens and eat the fruits.

Footnotes:

  1. 9:14 Rebuild…inhabit…plant…drink: in this era of restoration, the Lord nullifies the curse of 5:11, which uses these same four verbs, and turns it into a blessing for Israel.
