1 οὕτως ἔδειξέν μοι κύριος καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐπιγονὴ ἀκρίδων ἐρχομένη ἑωθινή καὶ ἰδοὺ βροῦχος εἷς Γωγ ὁ βασιλεύς 2 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν συντελέσῃ τοῦ καταφαγεῖν τὸν χόρτον τῆς γῆς καὶ εἶπα κύριε κύριε ἵλεως γενοῦ τίς ἀναστήσει τὸν Ιακωβ ὅτι ὀλιγοστός ἐστιν 3 μετανόησον κύριε ἐπὶ τούτῳ καὶ τοῦτο οὐκ ἔσται λέγει κύριος 4 οὕτως ἔδειξέν μοι κύριος καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐκάλεσεν τὴν δίκην ἐν πυρὶ κύριος καὶ κατέφαγε τὴν ἄβυσσον τὴν πολλὴν καὶ κατέφαγεν τὴν μερίδα 5 καὶ εἶπα κύριε κύριε κόπασον δή τίς ἀναστήσει τὸν Ιακωβ ὅτι ὀλιγοστός ἐστιν 6 μετανόησον κύριε ἐπὶ τούτῳ καὶ τοῦτο οὐ μὴ γένηται λέγει κύριος 1 This was a vision the Lord God shewed me; here were locusts a-making, just at the time when the aftergrowth was coming up, after the king’s crop had been carried. 2 Short work had these made of all the land yielded; Ah, Lord God, said I, be merciful! How should Jacob survive, the puny creature he is? 3 And with that, the Lord relented; Happen it shall not, said he. 4 And a second vision the Lord God shewed me, how he would summon them to ordeal by fire; fire should devour the waters below the earth, and devoured some part of them were. 5 Ah, Lord God, said I, for pity! How should Jacob survive, the puny creature he is? 6 And with that, the Lord relented again; Happen it shall not, said he. 1 Hæc ostendit mihi Dominus Deus: et ecce fictor locustæ in principio germinantium serotini imbris, et ecce serotinus post tonsionem regis. 2 Et factum est, cum consummasset comedere herbam terræ, dixi: Domine Deus, propitius esto, obsecro; quis suscitabit Jacob, quia parvulus est? 3 Misertus est Dominus super hoc: Non erit, dixit Dominus. 4 Hæc ostendit mihi Dominus Deus: et ecce vocabat judicium ad ignem Dominus Deus; et devoravit abyssum multam, et comedit simul partem. 5 Et dixi: Domine Deus, quiesce, obsecro; quis suscitabit Jacob, quia parvulus est? 6 Misertus est Dominus super hoc: Sed et istud non erit, dixit Dominus Deus.
7 οὕτως ἔδειξέν μοι κύριος καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ ἑστηκὼς ἐπὶ τείχους ἀδαμαντίνου καὶ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ ἀδάμας 8 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με τί σὺ ὁρᾷς Αμως καὶ εἶπα ἀδάμαντα καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐντάσσω ἀδάμαντα ἐν μέσῳ λαοῦ μου Ισραηλ οὐκέτι μὴ προσθῶ τοῦ παρελθεῖν αὐτόν 9 καὶ ἀφανισθήσονται βωμοὶ τοῦ γέλωτος καὶ αἱ τελεταὶ τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐξερημωθήσονται καὶ ἀναστήσομαι ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Ιεροβοαμ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ 7 But now the Lord shewed me a third vision; a plastered wall, and the Lord himself standing by it with a trowel[1] in his hand, 8 asking me if I could see what he had there. Why, Lord, I said, a plasterer’s trowel! Ay, he answered, and here, in full view of Israel’s folk, that trowel I lay aside; cementing they shall have from me no more. 9 Hill-shrines of Aven[2] shall tumble down, sanctuaries of Israel be laid waste; at the sword’s point I will try conclusions with the race of Jeroboam. 7 Hæc ostendit mihi Dominus: et ecce Dominus stans super murum litum, et in manu ejus trulla cæmentarii. 8 Et dixit Dominus ad me: Quid tu vides, Amos? Et dixi: Trullam cæmentarii. Et dixit Dominus:

Ecce ego ponam trullam in medio populi mei Israël;
non adjiciam ultra superinducere eum.
9
Et demolientur excelsa idoli,
et sanctificationes Israël desolabuntur,
et consurgam super domum Jeroboam in gladio.
10 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν Αμασιας ὁ ἱερεὺς Βαιθηλ πρὸς Ιεροβοαμ βασιλέα Ισραηλ λέγων συστροφὰς ποιεῖται κατὰ σοῦ Αμως ἐν μέσῳ οἴκου Ισραηλ οὐ μὴ δύνηται ἡ γῆ ὑπενεγκεῖν ἅπαντας τοὺς λόγους αὐτοῦ 11 διότι τάδε λέγει Αμως ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ τελευτήσει Ιεροβοαμ ὁ δὲ Ισραηλ αἰχμάλωτος ἀχθήσεται ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ 12 καὶ εἶπεν Αμασιας πρὸς Αμως ὁ ὁρῶν βάδιζε ἐκχώρησον εἰς γῆν Ιουδα καὶ ἐκεῖ καταβίου καὶ ἐκεῖ προφητεύσεις 13 εἰς δὲ Βαιθηλ οὐκέτι μὴ προσθῇς τοῦ προφητεῦσαι ὅτι ἁγίασμα βασιλέως ἐστὶν καὶ οἶκος βασιλείας ἐστίν 10 Hereupon, a message came to Jeroboam, king of Israel, from Amasias that was priest at Bethel. Here is Amos, said he, raising revolt against thee in the realm of Israel; there is no room in all the land for such talk as his; 11 Jeroboam to die at the sword’s point, Israel to be banished from its native country! 12 And this was his counsel to Amos, Sir prophet, get thee gone; in Juda take refuge if thou wilt, and there earn thy living by prophecy. 13 Prophesy here in Bethel thou mayst not, where the king’s chapel is, and the king’s court. 10 Et misit Amasias, sacerdos Bethel, ad Jeroboam, regem Israël, dicens: Rebellavit contra te Amos in medio domus Israël; non poterit terra sustinere universos sermones ejus. 11 Hæc enim dicit Amos: In gladio morietur Jeroboam, et Israël captivus migrabit de terra sua. 12 Et dixit Amasias ad Amos: Qui vides, gradere: fuge in terram Juda, et comede ibi panem, et prophetabis ibi. 13 Et in Bethel non adjicies ultra ut prophetes, quia sanctificatio regis est, et domus regni est.
14 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Αμως καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Αμασιαν οὐκ ἤμην προφήτης ἐγὼ οὐδὲ υἱὸς προφήτου ἀλ{L'} ἢ αἰπόλος ἤμην καὶ κνίζων συκάμινα 15 καὶ ἀνέλαβέν με κύριος ἐκ τῶν προβάτων καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με βάδιζε προφήτευσον ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν μου Ισραηλ 16 καὶ νῦν ἄκουε λόγον κυρίου σὺ λέγεις μὴ προφήτευε ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ οὐ μὴ ὀχλαγωγήσῃς ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Ιακωβ 17 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἡ γυνή σου ἐν τῇ πόλει πορνεύσει καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες σου ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ πεσοῦνται καὶ ἡ γῆ σου ἐν σχοινίῳ καταμετρηθήσεται καὶ σὺ ἐν γῇ ἀκαθάρτῳ τελευτήσεις ὁ δὲ Ισραηλ αἰχμάλωτος ἀχθήσεται ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ 14 What, said Amos, I a prophet? Nay, not that, nor a prophet’s son neither; I am one that minds cattle, one that nips the sycamore-trees; 15 I was but tending sheep when the Lord took me into his service. It was the Lord bade me go and prophesy to his people of Israel. 16 He has a message for thee: Thou wilt have no prophesying against Israel, no word dropped against Bethaven? 17 Here, then, is the divine doom pronounced on thee: Wife of thine, here in the city streets, shall be dishonoured; sons and daughters of thine shall die at the sword’s point; lands of thine shall feel the measuring-rope. And for thyself, on unhallowed soil death awaits thee, when Israel is banished, as banished it needs must be, from the land of its birth. 14 Responditque Amos, et dixit ad Amasiam: Non sum propheta, et non sum filius prophetæ: sed armentarius ego sum vellicans sycomoros. 15 Et tulit me Dominus cum sequerer gregem, et dixit Dominus ad me: Vade, propheta ad populum meum Israël. 16 Et nunc audi verbum Domini:

Tu dicis: Non prophetabis super Israël,
et non stillabis super domum idoli.
17
Propter hoc hæc dicit Dominus:
Uxor tua in civitate fornicabitur,
et filii tui et filiæ tuæ in gladio cadent,
et humus tua funiculo metietur:
et tu in terra polluta morieris,
et Israël captivus migrabit de terra sua.
