Amos 8:1-3 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

The Basket of Fruit

Thus the Lord God showed me: behold, a basket of summer fruit.[a] And he said, “Amos, what do you see?” And I said, “A basket of summer fruit.”[b] Then the Lord said to me,

“The end[c] has come upon my people Israel;
    I will never again pass by them.
The songs of the temple[d] shall become wailings in that day,”
                says the Lord God;
“the dead bodies shall be many;
    in every place they shall be cast out in silence.”[e]
