Amos 3:2-5

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 3

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?
King James Version

Chapter 3

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?
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 3

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?
New Living Translation

Chapter 3

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?
English Standard Version

Does a snare spring up from the ground, when it has taken nothing?
