Amos 1:3-5

3-5God's Message:

"Because of the three great sins of Damascus

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

She pounded Gilead to a pulp, pounded her senseless

with iron hammers and mauls.

For that, I'm setting the palace of Hazael on fire.

I'm torching Ben-hadad's forts.

I'm going to smash the Damascus gates

and banish the crime king who lives in Sin Valley,

the vice boss who gives orders from Paradise Palace.

The people of the land will be sent back

to where they came from—to Kir."

God's Decree.

6-8God's Message:

"Because of the three great sins of Gaza

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

She deported whole towns

and then sold the people to Edom.

For that, I'm burning down the walls of Gaza,

burning up all her forts.

I'll banish the crime king from Ashdod,

the vice boss from Ashkelon.

I'll raise my fist against Ekron,

and what's left of the Philistines will die."

God's Decree.
