AMO 5:14 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD,
the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.
AMO 5:15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in
the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the
remnant of Joseph.
AMO 5:16 Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the LORD, saith thus;
Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways,
Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as
are skilful of lamentation to wailing.
AMO 5:17 And in all vineyards shall be wailing: for I will pass through
thee, saith the LORD.
