Amos 8:1-3 World English Bible (WEB)

Thus the Lord Yahweh showed me: behold, a basket of summer fruit.

He said, “Amos, what do you see?”

I said, “A basket of summer fruit.”

Then Yahweh said to me,

“The end has come on my people Israel.
    I will not again pass by them any more.
The songs of the temple will be wailings in that day,” says the Lord Yahweh.
    “The dead bodies will be many. In every place they will throw them out with silence.

Basket of Fruit and Israel’s Captivity

Thus the Lord [a]God showed me, and behold, there was a basket of summer fruit. He said, “What do you see, Amos?” And I said, “A basket of summer fruit.” Then the Lord said to me, “The end has come for My people Israel. I will [b]spare them no longer. [c]The songs of the palace will turn to wailing in that day,” declares the Lord God. “Many will be the corpses; in every place [d]they will cast them forth [e]in silence.”
