Amos 8:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 8

Fourth Vision: The Summer Fruit

This is what the Lord God showed me: a basket of end-of-summer fruit.[a] He asked, “What do you see, Amos?” And I answered, “A basket of end-of-summer fruit.” And the Lord said to me:

The end has come for my people Israel;
    I will forgive them no longer.
The temple singers will wail on that day—
    oracle of the Lord God.
Many shall be the corpses,
    strewn everywhere—Silence!


  1. 8:1–2 End-of-summer fruit…the end has come: the English translation attempts to capture the wordplay of the Hebrew. The Hebrew word for “fruit picked late in the season” is qayis, while the word for “end” is qes.
