Daily Word of God - Amos 5:4-7

Amos 5:4-7 New Living Translation (NLT)

4 Now this is what the Lord says to the family of Israel:

“Come back to me and live!
5 Don’t worship at the pagan altars at Bethel;
    don’t go to the shrines at Gilgal or Beersheba.
For the people of Gilgal will be dragged off into exile,
    and the people of Bethel will be reduced to nothing.”
6 Come back to the Lord and live!
Otherwise, he will roar through Israel[a] like a fire,
    devouring you completely.
Your gods in Bethel
    won’t be able to quench the flames.
7 You twist justice, making it a bitter pill for the oppressed.
    You treat the righteous like dirt.

5:6 Hebrew the house of Joseph.
