Amos 6:1-14
1. Woe to them that are at ease in Zion and that are secure in the mountain of Samaria, the renowned of the first of the nations, to whom the house of Israel come.
2. Pass unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go to Hamath the great; and go down to Gath of the Philistines: are they better than these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border?
3. Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near;
4. that lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves from the midst of the stall;
5. that chant to the sound of the lute, [and] invent them instruments of music, like David;
6. that drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments; but are not grieved for the breach of Joseph.
7. Therefore shall they now go captive, with the first that go captive, and the revelry of them that stretched themselves shall pass away.
8. The Lord Jehovah hath sworn by himself, saith Jehovah, the God of hosts, I abhor the pride of Jacob, and hate his palaces; and I will deliver up the city with all that is therein.
9. And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.
10. And a man's uncle, and he that should burn him, shall take him up to bring out the bones from the house, and shall say unto him that is in the inner parts of the house, Is there yet [any] with thee? and he shall say, None. And he will say, Silence! for we may not make mention of Jehovah's name.
11. For behold, Jehovah commandeth, and he will smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with clefts.
12. Shall horses run upon the rock? will [men] plough [thereon] with oxen? For ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood,
13. ye that rejoice in a thing of nought, that say, Have we not taken to us power by our own strength?
14. For behold, O house of Israel, saith Jehovah the God of hosts, I will raise up against you a nation; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hamath unto the torrent of the Arabah.

Amos 7:1-17
1. Thus did the Lord Jehovah shew unto me; and behold, he formed locusts in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth, and behold, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings.
2. And it came to pass, when they had wholly eaten the grass of the land, that I said, O Lord Jehovah, forgive, I beseech thee! How shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
3. Jehovah repented for this: It shall not be, said Jehovah.
4. Thus did the Lord Jehovah shew unto me; and behold, the Lord Jehovah called to contend by fire; and it devoured the great deep, and ate up the inheritance.
5. Then said I, O Lord Jehovah, cease, I beseech thee! How shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
6. Jehovah repented for this: This also shall not be, said the Lord Jehovah.
7. Thus did he shew unto me; and behold, the Lord stood upon a wall [made] by a plumb-line, with a plumb-line in his hand.
8. And Jehovah said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumb-line. And the Lord said, Behold, I will set a plumb-line in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more.
9. And the high places of Isaac shall be desolated, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will arise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.
10. Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his words.
11. For thus Amos saith: Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall certainly go into captivity out of his land.
12. And Amaziah said unto Amos, [Thou] seer, go, flee away into the land of Judah, and eat bread there, and prophesy there.
13. But prophesy not again any more at Bethel; for it is the king's sanctuary, and it is the house of the kingdom.
14. And Amos answered and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was a herdman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruit.
15. And Jehovah took me as I followed the flock, and Jehovah said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.
16. And now hear thou the word of Jehovah: Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and utter not [words] against the house of Isaac.
17. Therefore thus saith Jehovah: Thy wife shall be a harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided with the line; and thou shalt die in a land that is unclean; and Israel shall certainly go into captivity, out of his land.

Psalms 142:1-7
1. {An instruction of David; when he was in the cave: a prayer.} I cry unto Jehovah with my voice: with my voice unto Jehovah do I make supplication.
2. I pour out my plaint before him; I shew before him my trouble.
3. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then *thou* knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they hidden a snare for me.
4. Look on the right hand and see; there is no man that knoweth me: refuge hath failed me; no man careth for my soul.
5. I cried unto thee, Jehovah; I said, Thou art my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.
6. Attend unto my cry, for I am brought very low; deliver me from my persecutors, for they are stronger than I.
7. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may celebrate thy name. The righteous shall surround me, because thou dealest bountifully with me.

Proverbs 29:27-27
27. An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous; and he that is of upright way is an abomination to the wicked [man].

Revelation 5:1-14
1. And I saw on the right hand of him that sat upon the throne a book, written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals.
2. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who [is] worthy to open the book, and to break its seals?
3. And no one was able in the heaven, or upon the earth, or underneath the earth, to open the book, or to regard it.
4. And *I* wept much because no one had been found worthy to open the book nor to regard it.
5. And one of the elders says to me, Do not weep. Behold, the lion which [is] of the tribe of Juda, the root of David, has overcome [so as] to open the book, and its seven seals.
6. And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God [which are] sent into all the earth:
7. and it came and took [it] out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
8. And when it took the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell before the Lamb, having each a harp and golden bowls full of incenses, which are the prayers of the saints.
9. And they sing a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open its seals; because thou hast been slain, and hast redeemed to God, by thy blood, out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation,
10. and made them to our God kings and priests; and they shall reign over the earth.
11. And I saw, and I heard [the] voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and their number was ten thousands of ten thousands and thousands of thousands;
12. saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that has been slain, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
13. And every creature which is in the heaven and upon the earth and under the earth, and [those that are] upon the sea, and all things in them, heard I saying, To him that sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb, blessing, and honour, and glory, and might, to the ages of ages.
14. And the four living creatures said, Amen; and the elders fell down and did homage.
