Amos 2:11-14

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 2

11 Then I raised up some of your sons to be prophets, And some of your young men to be Nazirites. Is this not so, you sons of Israel?' declares the LORD. 12 'But you made the Nazirites drink wine, And you commanded the prophets, saying, ‘You shall not prophesy!’ 13 Behold, I am making a rut in the ground beneath you, Just as a wagon makes a rut when filled with sheaves. 14 Refuge will be lost from the swift, And the strong will not strengthen his power, Nor the warrior save his life.
King James Version

Chapter 2

11 And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith the LORD. 12 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not. 13 Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart is pressed that is full of sheaves. 14 Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shall the mighty deliver himself:

Chapter 2

11 I raised up some of your sons as prophets and some of your young men as Nazirites. Is this not the case, Israelites?This is the Lord's declaration.
12 But you made the Nazirites drink wine and commanded the prophets, "Do not prophesy." 13 Look, I am about to crush you in your place as a wagon crushes when full of grain. 14 Escape will fail the swift, the strong one will not maintain his strength, and the warrior will not save his life.
New Living Translation

Chapter 2

11 I chose some of your sons to be prophets and others to be Nazirites. Can you deny this, my people of Israel?' asks the LORD. 12 'But you caused the Nazirites to sin by making them drink wine, and you commanded the prophets, 'Shut up!'
13 'So I will make you groan like a wagon loaded down with sheaves of grain. 14 Your fastest runners will not get away. The strongest among you will become weak. Even mighty warriors will be unable to save themselves.
English Standard Version

Is it not indeed so, O people of Israel?” declares the LORD. 12 “But you made the Nazirites drink wine, and commanded the prophets, saying, ‘You shall not prophesy.’ 13 “Behold, I will press you down in your place, as a cart full of sheaves presses down. 14 Flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not retain his strength, nor shall the mighty save his life;

11 I also raised up prophets from among your children and Nazirites from among your youths. Is this not true, people of Israel?' declares the LORD.
12 But you made the Nazirites drink wine and commanded the prophets not to prophesy. 13 Now then, I will crush you as a cart crushes when loaded with grain. 14 The swift will not escape, the strong will not muster their strength, and the warrior will not save his life.
