International Children’s Bible
2 Amos said,
“The Lord will roar like a lion from Jerusalem.
His loud voice will sound like a growl from Jerusalem.
The green pastures of the shepherds will become dry.
Even Mount Carmel will dry up.”
Israel’s Neighbors Are Punished
The People of Aram
3 This is what the Lord says:
“For the many crimes Damascus is doing,
I will punish them.
They beat the people of Gilead
with threshing boards that had iron teeth.
4 So I will send fire upon the house of Hazael.
That fire will destroy the strong towers of Ben-Hadad.
