Amos 6:5-9

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 6

5 Who improvise to the sound of the harp, And like David have composed songs for themselves, 6 Who drink wine from sacred bowls While they anoint themselves with the finest of oils— Yet they have not grieved over the collapse of Joseph. 7 Therefore, they will now go into exile at the head of the exiles, And the revelry of those who lounge around will come to an end.
8 The Lord GOD has sworn by Himself, the LORD God of armies has declared: 'I loathe the arrogance of Jacob, And detest his citadels; Therefore I will give up the city and all it contains.'
9 And it will be, if ten men are left in one house, they will die.
King James Version

Chapter 6

5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David; 6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph. 7 Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.
8 The Lord GOD hath sworn by himself, saith the LORD the God of hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein. 9 And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 6

5 They improvise songs to the sound of the harp and invent their own musical instruments like David. 6 They drink wine by the bowlful and anoint themselves with the finest oils but do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph. 7 Therefore, they will now go into exile as the first of the captives, and the feasting of those who sprawl out will come to an end.
8 The Lord God has sworn by himself--this is the declaration of the Lord, the God of Armies: I loathe Jacob's pride and hate his citadels, so I will hand over the city and everything in it.
9 And if there are ten men left in one house, they will die.
New Living Translation

Chapter 6

5 You sing trivial songs to the sound of the harp and fancy yourselves to be great musicians like David. 6 You drink wine by the bowlful and perfume yourselves with fragrant lotions. You care nothing about the ruin of your nation. 7 Therefore, you will be the first to be led away as captives. Suddenly, all your parties will end.
8 The Sovereign LORD has sworn by his own name, and this is what he, the LORD God of Heaven's Armies, says: 'I despise the arrogance of Israel, and I hate their fortresses. I will give this city and everything in it to their enemies.'
9 (If there are ten men left in one house, they will all die.
English Standard Version

Chapter 6

5 who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp and like David invent for themselves instruments of music, 6 who drink wine in bowls and anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph! 7 Therefore they shall now be the first of those who go into exile, and the revelry of those who stretch themselves out shall pass away.” 8 The Lord GOD has sworn by himself, declares the LORD, the God of hosts: “I abhor the pride of Jacob and hate his strongholds, and I will deliver up the city and all that is in it.”
9 And if ten men remain in one house, they shall die.
New International Version

Chapter 6

5 You strum away on your harps like David and improvise on musical instruments. 6 You drink wine by the bowlful and use the finest lotions, but you do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph. 7 Therefore you will be among the first to go into exile; your feasting and lounging will end.
8 The Sovereign LORD has sworn by himself--the LORD God Almighty declares: 'I abhor the pride of Jacob and detest his fortresses; I will deliver up the city and everything in it.'
9 If ten people are left in one house, they too will die.
