Amos 1:11-12

11-12God's Message:

"Because of the three great sins of Edom

—make that four—I'm not putting up with her any longer.

She hunts down her brother to murder him.

She has no pity, she has no heart.

Her anger rampages day and night.

Her meanness never takes a timeout.

For that, I'm burning down her capital, Teman,

burning up the forts of Bozrah."

13-15God's Message:

"Because of the three great sins of Ammon

—make that four—I'm not putting up with her any longer.

She ripped open pregnant women in Gilead

to get more land for herself.

For that, I'm burning down the walls of her capital, Rabbah,

burning up her forts.

Battle shouts! War whoops!

with a tornado to finish things off!

The king has been carted off to exile,

the king and his princes with him."

God's Decree.
