Amos Chapter 3 עָמוֹס

Amos Chapter 3 עָמוֹס

א  שִׁמְעוּ אֶת-הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה, אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְהוָה עֲלֵיכֶם–בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל:  עַל כָּל-הַמִּשְׁפָּחָה, אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱלֵיתִי מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם לֵאמֹר. 1 Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up out of the land of Egypt, saying:
ב  רַק אֶתְכֶם יָדַעְתִּי, מִכֹּל מִשְׁפְּחוֹת הָאֲדָמָה; עַל-כֵּן אֶפְקֹד עֲלֵיכֶם, אֵת כָּל-עֲו‍ֹנֹתֵיכֶם. 2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will visit upon you all your iniquities.
ג  הֲיֵלְכוּ שְׁנַיִם, יַחְדָּו, בִּלְתִּי, אִם-נוֹעָדוּ. 3 Will two walk together, except they have agreed?
ד  הֲיִשְׁאַג אַרְיֵה בַּיַּעַר, וְטֶרֶף אֵין לוֹ; הֲיִתֵּן כְּפִיר קוֹלוֹ מִמְּעֹנָתוֹ, בִּלְתִּי אִם-לָכָד. 4 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? Will a young lion give forth his voice out of his den, if he have taken nothing?
ה  הֲתִפֹּל צִפּוֹר עַל-פַּח הָאָרֶץ, וּמוֹקֵשׁ אֵין לָהּ; הֲיַעֲלֶה-פַּח, מִן-הָאֲדָמָה, וְלָכוֹד, לֹא יִלְכּוֹד. 5 Will a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where there is no lure for it? Will a snare spring up from the ground, and have taken nothing at all?
ו  אִם-יִתָּקַע שׁוֹפָר בְּעִיר, וְעָם לֹא יֶחֱרָדוּ; אִם-תִּהְיֶה רָעָה בְּעִיר, וַיהוָה לֹא עָשָׂה. 6 Shall the horn be blown in a city, and the people not tremble? Shall evil befall a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
ז  כִּי לֹא יַעֲשֶׂה אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, דָּבָר, כִּי אִם-גָּלָה סוֹדוֹ, אֶל-עֲבָדָיו הַנְּבִיאִים. 7 For the Lord GOD will do nothing, but He revealeth His counsel unto His servants the prophets.
ח  אַרְיֵה שָׁאָג, מִי לֹא יִירָא; אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה דִּבֶּר, מִי לֹא יִנָּבֵא. 8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
ט  הַשְׁמִיעוּ עַל-אַרְמְנוֹת בְּאַשְׁדּוֹד, וְעַל-אַרְמְנוֹת בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם; וְאִמְרוּ, הֵאָסְפוּ עַל-הָרֵי שֹׁמְרוֹן, וּרְאוּ מְהוּמֹת רַבּוֹת בְּתוֹכָהּ, וַעֲשׁוּקִים בְּקִרְבָּהּ. 9 Proclaim it upon the palaces at Ashdod, and upon the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say: ‘Assemble yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria, and behold the great confusions therein, and the oppressions in the midst thereof.’
י  וְלֹא-יָדְעוּ עֲשׂוֹת-נְכֹחָה, נְאֻם-יְהוָה; הָאוֹצְרִים חָמָס וָשֹׁד, בְּאַרְמְנוֹתֵיהֶם.  {פ} 10 For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces. {P}
יא  לָכֵן, כֹּה אָמַר אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, צַר, וּסְבִיב הָאָרֶץ; וְהוֹרִיד מִמֵּךְ עֻזֵּךְ, וְנָבֹזּוּ אַרְמְנוֹתָיִךְ. 11 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD: An adversary, even round about the land! And he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled.
יב  כֹּה, אָמַר יְהוָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר יַצִּיל הָרֹעֶה מִפִּי הָאֲרִי שְׁתֵּי כְרָעַיִם, אוֹ בְדַל-אֹזֶן–כֵּן יִנָּצְלוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, הַיֹּשְׁבִים בְּשֹׁמְרוֹן, בִּפְאַת מִטָּה, וּבִדְמֶשֶׁק עָרֶשׂ. 12 Thus saith the LORD: As the shepherd rescueth out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear, so shall the children of Israel that dwell in Samaria escape with the corner of a couch, and the leg of a bed.
יג  שִׁמְעוּ וְהָעִידוּ, בְּבֵית יַעֲקֹב–נְאֻם-אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה, אֱלֹהֵי הַצְּבָאוֹת. 13 Hear ye, and testify against the house of Jacob, saith the Lord GOD, the God of hosts.
יד  כִּי, בְּיוֹם פָּקְדִי פִשְׁעֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל–עָלָיו:  וּפָקַדְתִּי, עַל-מִזְבְּחוֹת בֵּית-אֵל, וְנִגְדְּעוּ קַרְנוֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וְנָפְלוּ לָאָרֶץ. 14 For in the day that I shall visit the transgressions of Israel upon him, I will also punish the altars of Beth-el, and the horns of the altar shall be cut off, and fall to the ground.
טו  וְהִכֵּיתִי בֵית-הַחֹרֶף, עַל-בֵּית הַקָּיִץ; וְאָבְדוּ בָּתֵּי הַשֵּׁן, וְסָפוּ בָּתִּים רַבִּים–נְאֻם-יְהוָה.  {ס} 15 And I will smite the winter-house with the summer-house; and the houses of ivory shall perish, and the great houses shall have an end, saith the LORD. {S}

DAILY SCRIPTURES

Reading 1 Is 26:1-6

On that day they will sing this song in the land of Judah:

“A strong city have we;
he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us.
Open up the gates
to let in a nation that is just,
one that keeps faith.
A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace;
in peace, for its trust in you.”

Trust in the LORD forever!
For the LORD is an eternal Rock.
He humbles those in high places,
and the lofty city he brings down;
He tumbles it to the ground,
levels it with the dust.
It is trampled underfoot by the needy,
by the footsteps of the poor.

Responsorial Psalm Ps 118:1 and 8-9, 19-21, 25-27a

R. (26a) Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
or:
R. Alleluia.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his mercy endures forever.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in princes.
R. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
or:
R. Alleluia.
Open to me the gates of justice;
I will enter them and give thanks to the LORD.
This gate is the LORD’s;
the just shall enter it.
I will give thanks to you, for you have answered me
and have been my savior.
R. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
or:
R. Alleluia.
O LORD, grant salvation!
O LORD, grant prosperity!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD;
we bless you from the house of the LORD.
The LORD is God, and he has given us light.
R. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
or:
R. Alleluia.

Gospel Mt 7:21, 24-27

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’
will enter the Kingdom of heaven,
but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.

“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them
will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.
The rain fell, the floods came,
and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.
And everyone who listens to these words of mine
but does not act on them
will be like a fool who built his house on sand.
The rain fell, the floods came,
and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
And it collapsed and was completely ruined.”
