Amos 3:1–8 (Listen)

3:1 Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family that I brought up out of the land of Egypt:

  “You only have I known
    of all the families of the earth;
  therefore I will punish you
    for all your iniquities.
  “Do two walk together,
    unless they have agreed to meet?
  Does a lion roar in the forest,
    when he has no prey?
  Does a young lion cry out from his den,
    if he has taken nothing?
  Does a bird fall in a snare on the earth,
    when there is no trap for it?
  Does a snare spring up from the ground,
    when it has taken nothing?
  Is a trumpet blown in a city,
    and the people are not afraid?
  Does disaster come to a city,
    unless the LORD has done it?
  “For the Lord GOD does nothing
    without revealing his secret
    to his servants the prophets.
  The lion has roared;
    who will not fear?
  The Lord GOD has spoken;
    who can but prophesy?”
