Amos 8:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Hear this, you who trample upon the needy
    and destroy the poor of the land:
“When will the new moon be over,” you ask,
    “that we may sell our grain,
And the sabbath,
    that we may open the grain-bins?
We will diminish the ephah,[a]
    add to the shekel,
    and fix our scales for cheating!
We will buy the destitute for silver,
    and the poor for a pair of sandals;
    even the worthless grain we will sell!”

Amos 8:9-12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

On that day—oracle of the Lord God
    I will make the sun set at midday
    and in broad daylight cover the land with darkness.
10 I will turn your feasts into mourning
    and all your songs into dirges.
I will cover the loins of all with sackcloth
    and make every head bald.
I will make it like the time of mourning for an only child,
    and its outcome like a day of bitter weeping.

11 See, days are coming—oracle of the Lord God
    when I will send a famine upon the land:
Not a hunger for bread, or a thirst for water,
    but for hearing the word of the Lord.
12 They shall stagger from sea to sea
    and wander from north to east
In search of the word of the Lord,
    but they shall not find it.
