Amos 5:24
Context
The Coming Judgment

16Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the LORD, said thus; Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas! and they shall call the farmer to mourning, and such as are skillful of lamentation to wailing. 17And in all vineyards shall be wailing: for I will pass through you, said the LORD. 18Woe to you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. 19As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. 20Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? 21I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. 22Though you offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts. 23Take you away from me the noise of your songs; for I will not hear the melody of your viols. 24But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. 25Have you offered to me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? 26But you have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which you made to yourselves. 27Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, said the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.
