Amos 6:8-10

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 6

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. 10 Then one’s uncle, or his undertaker, will lift him up to carry out his bones from the house, and he will say to the one who is in the innermost part of the house, 'Is anyone else with you?' And that one will say, 'No one.' Then he will answer, 'Keep quiet! For the name of the LORD is not to be mentioned.'
King James Version

Chapter 6

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. 10 And a man's uncle shall take him up, and he that burneth him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the house, Is there yet any with thee? and he shall say, No. Then shall he say, Hold thy tongue: for we may not make mention of the name of the LORD.

Chapter 6

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.
10 A close relative and burner will remove his corpse from the house. He will call to someone in the inner recesses of the house, "Any more with you? "That person will reply, "None."Then he will say, "Silence, because the Lord's name must not be invoked."
New Living Translation

Chapter 6

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. 10 And when a relative who is responsible to dispose of the dead goes into the house to carry out the bodies, he will ask the last survivor, 'Is anyone else with you?' When the person begins to swear, 'No, by . . .,' he will interrupt and say, 'Stop! Don't even mention the name of the LORD.')
English Standard Version

Chapter 6

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. 10 And when one’s relative, the one who anoints him for burial, shall take him up to bring the bones out of the house, and shall say to him who is in the innermost parts of the house, “Is there still anyone with you?” he shall say, “No”; and he shall say, “Silence! We must not mention the name of the LORD.”
New International Version

Chapter 6

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. 10 And if the relative who comes to carry the bodies out of the house to burn them asks anyone who might be hiding there, 'Is anyone else with you?' and he says, 'No,' then he will go on to say, 'Hush! We must not mention the name of the LORD.'
