Amos 8:1-3 New Century Version (NCV)

The Vision of Ripe Fruit

This is what the Lord God showed me: 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[a] has come for my people Israel, because I will not overlook their sins anymore.

“On that day the palace songs will become funeral songs,” says the Lord God. “There will be dead bodies thrown everywhere! Silence!”
