Amos, Day 5 Readings

Destruction and a Glimmer of Hope 

Today's reading is the conclusion of the prophecy of Amos.  It foretells the almost complete destruction of Israel.  The inhabitants will not be able to hide from God's wrath.  However, this will not be the end of the story.  After the time of devastation, God promises a day when the people will be restored to independence in this holy land and allowed to flourish.

Read Amos 9:1-15  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
