Amos 3:5-8

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 3

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. 8 A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can do anything but prophesy?
King James Version

Chapter 3

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. 8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 3

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.
8 A lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who will not prophesy?
New Living Translation

Chapter 3

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.
8 The lion has roared--so who isn't frightened? The Sovereign LORD has spoken--so who can refuse to proclaim his message?
English Standard Version

Chapter 3

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. 8 The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken; who can but prophesy?”
New International Version

Chapter 3

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.
8 The lion has roared-- who will not fear? The Sovereign LORD has spoken-- who can but prophesy?
