9.6
AMOS

And poureth them out upon the face of the earth;
The Lord is His name.
 
7Are ye not as the children of the Ethiopians unto Me,
O children of Israel? saith the Lord.
Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt,
And the Philistines from Caphtor,
And Aram from Kir?
8Behold, the eyes of the Lord God
Are upon the sinful kingdom,
And I will destroy it from off the face of the earth;
Saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,
Saith the Lord.
9For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all the nations,
Like as corn is sifted in a sieve,
Yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
10All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword,
That say: 'The evil shall not overtake nor confront us.'
 
11In that day will I raise up
The tabernacle of David that is fallen,
And close up the breaches thereof,
And I will raise up his ruins,
And I will build it as in the days of old;
12That they may possess the remnant of Edom,
And all the nations, upon whom My name is called,
Saith the Lord that doeth this.
 
13Behold, the days come, saith the Lord,
That the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
And the treader of grapes him that soweth seed;
And the mountains shall drop sweet wine,
And all the hills shall melt.
14And I will turn the captivity of My people Israel,
And they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them;
And they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof;
They shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
15And I will plant them upon their land,
And they shall no more be plucked up
Out of their land which I have given them,
Saith the Lord thy God.

OBADIAH

1The vision of Obadiah.
 
Thus saith the Lord God concerning Edom:
We have heard a message from the Lord,
And an ambassador is sent among the nations:
'Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle.'
2Behold, I make thee small among the nations;
