Amos 3:1-7

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 3

1 Hear this word which the LORD has spoken against you, sons of Israel, against the entire family which He brought up from the land of Egypt:
2 'You only have I known among all the families of the earth; Therefore I will punish you for all your wrongdoing.' 3 Do two people walk together unless they have agreed to meet? 4 Does a lion roar in the forest when he has no prey? Does a young lion growl from his den unless he has captured something? 5 Does a bird fall into a trap on the ground when there is no device in it? Does a trap spring up from the earth when it captures nothing at all? 6 If a trumpet is blown in a city, will the people not tremble? If a disaster occurs in a city, has the LORD not brought it about? 7 Certainly the Lord GOD does nothing Unless He reveals His secret plan To His servants the prophets.
King James Version

Chapter 3

1 Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, 2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. 3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed? 4 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? 5 Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all? 6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? 7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 3

1 Listen to this message that the Lord has spoken against you, Israelites, against the entire clan that I brought from the land of Egypt:
2 I have known only you out of all the clans of the earth; therefore, I will punish you for all your iniquities. 3 Can two walk together without agreeing to meet? 4 Does a lion roar in the forest when it has no prey? Does a young lion growl from its lair unless it has captured something? 5 Does a bird land in a trap on the ground if there is no bait for it? Does a trap spring from the ground when it has caught nothing? 6 If a ram's horn is blown in a city, aren't people afraid? If a disaster occurs in a city, hasn't the Lord done it? 7 Indeed, the Lord God does nothing without revealing his counsel to his servants the prophets.
New Living Translation

Chapter 3

1 Listen to this message that the LORD has spoken against you, O people of Israel and Judah--against the entire family I rescued from Egypt:
2 'From among all the families on the earth, I have been intimate with you alone. That is why I must punish you for all your sins.'
3 Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction? 4 Does a lion ever roar in a thicket without first finding a victim? Does a young lion growl in its den without first catching its prey? 5 Does a bird ever get caught in a trap that has no bait? Does a trap spring shut when there's nothing to catch? 6 When the ram's horn blows a warning, shouldn't the people be alarmed? Does disaster come to a city unless the LORD has planned it?
7 Indeed, the Sovereign LORD never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.
English Standard Version

Chapter 3

1 Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family that I brought up out of the land of Egypt:
2 “You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. 3 “Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to meet? 4 Does a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey? Does a young lion cry out from his den, if he has taken nothing? 5 Does a bird fall in a snare on the earth, when there is no trap for it? Does a snare spring up from the ground, when it has taken nothing? 6 Is a trumpet blown in a city, and the people are not afraid? Does disaster come to a city, unless the LORD has done it? 7 “For the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.
New International Version

Chapter 3

1 Hear this word, people of Israel, the word the LORD has spoken against you--against the whole family I brought up out of Egypt:
2 You only have I chosen of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your sins.' 3 Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so? 4 Does a lion roar in the thicket when it has no prey? Does it growl in its den when it has caught nothing? 5 Does a bird swoop down to a trap on the ground when no bait is there? Does a trap spring up from the ground if it has not caught anything?
6 When a trumpet sounds in a city, do not the people tremble? When disaster comes to a city, has not the LORD caused it?
7 Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.
