Amos 8:1-3 Expanded Bible (EXB)

The Vision of Ripe Fruit

This is what the Lord God showed me: [L look; T behold] a basket of summer fruit. He said to me, “Amos, what do you see?”

I said, “A basket of summer fruit.”

Then the Lord said to me, “An end [C the Hebrew word for “end” sounds like the word for “summer fruit”] has come for my people Israel, because I will not ·overlook their sins [L pass by them] anymore.

“On that day the ·palace [or temple] songs will become ·funeral songs [L wailing],” says the Lord God. “·There will be dead bodies [L Many bodies/corpses] thrown everywhere! ·Silence! [or …and carried out in silence.]
