Amos 9:8–15

Behold, xthe eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom,

and I will destroy it from the surface of the ground,

yexcept that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,”

declares the Lord.

“For behold, I will command,

zand shake the house of Israel among all the nations

as one shakes with a sieve,

but no pebble shall fall to the earth.

10  All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword,

who say, a‘Disaster shall not overtake or meet us.’

The Restoration of Israel

11  “In that day bI will raise up

the booth of David that is fallen

and repair its breaches,

and raise up its ruins

and rebuild it as in the days of old,

12  cthat they may possess the remnant of Edom

and dall the nations who are called by my name,”3

declares the Lord who does this.

13  “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord,

e“when the plowman shall overtake the reaper

and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed;

fthe mountains shall drip sweet wine,

and all the hills shall flow with it.

14  gI will restore the fortunes of my people Israel,

and hthey shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them;

ithey shall plant vineyards and drink their wine,

and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.

15  jI will plant them on their land,

kand they shall never again be uprooted

out of the land lthat I have given them,”

says the Lord your God.
