Daily Word of God - Amos 5:4-7

Amos 5:4-7 New International Version (NIV)

This is what the Lord says to Israel:
“Seek me and live;
    do not seek Bethel,
do not go to Gilgal,
    do not journey to Beersheba.
For Gilgal will surely go into exile,
    and Bethel will be reduced to nothing.[a]
Seek the Lord and live,
    or he will sweep through the tribes of Joseph like a fire;
it will devour them,
    and Bethel will have no one to quench it.
There are those who turn justice into bitterness
    and cast righteousness to the ground.

Footnotes:

  1. Amos 5:5 Hebrew aven, a reference to Beth Aven (a derogatory name for Bethel); see Hosea 4:15.
