||Amos - Revised Standard Version
||The Latter PROPHETS|
|"Do two walk together, |
unless they have made an appointment?
|The task of the prophet. Am.3.3-8
|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?
|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?
|Is a trumpet blown in a city, |
and the people are not afraid?
Does evil befall a city,
unless the LORD has done it?
|Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, |
without revealing his secret
to his servants the prophets.
|The lion has roared; |
who will not fear?
The Lord GOD has spoken;
who can but prophesy?"
