Amos 4:1-3 World English Bible (WEB)

Listen to this word, you cows of Bashan, who are on the mountain of Samaria, who oppress the poor, who crush the needy, who tell their husbands, “Bring us drinks!”

The Lord Yahweh has sworn by his holiness that behold,
    “The days shall come on you that they will take you away with hooks,
    and the last of you with fish hooks.
You will go out at the breaks in the wall,
    everyone straight before her;
    and you will cast yourselves into Harmon,” says Yahweh.

Amos 4:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Israel Has Not Returned to God

Hear this word, you cows of Bashan on Mount Samaria,
    you women who oppress the poor and crush the needy
    and say to your husbands, “Bring us some drinks!
The Sovereign Lord has sworn by his holiness:
    “The time will surely come
when you will be taken away with hooks,
    the last of you with fishhooks.[a]
You will each go straight out
    through breaches in the wall,
    and you will be cast out toward Harmon,[b]
declares the Lord.
