2 Kwathi lapho sesidlile utshani bezwe, ngathi: “Nkosi Jehova, ake uthethelele; uJakobe uyakuma kanjani, ngokuba mncane.”
3 UJehova wazisola ngalokhu. “Akuyikubakho,” usho uJehova.

7 Wayesengibonisa kanje: bheka, iNkosi yayimi ngasogangeni olwakhiwe ngentambo yomthofu wokumisa, enentambo yomthofu wokumisa esandleni sakhe.
8 UJehova wathi kimi: “Amose, ubonani na?” Ngathi: “Intambo yomthofu wokumisa.” Yayisithi iNkosi: “Bhekani, ngiyakubeka intambo yomthofu wokumisa phakathi kwabantu bami u-Israyeli; angisayikubadlula.
9 “Izindawo eziphakemeyo zika-Isaka ziyakuchithwa, nezindlu ezingcwele zakwa-Israyeli ziyakuqothulwa, ngivukele indlu kaJerobowamu ngenkemba.”
10 U-Amasiya umpristi waseBethele wayesethumela kuJerobowamu inkosi yakwa-Israyeli, wathi: “U-Amose ukwenzele ugobe phakathi kwendlu yakwa-Israyeli; izwe alinakuthwala onke amazwi akhe.

13 ungabe usaqhubeka kodwa ukuprofetha eBethele, ngokuba liyindlu engcwele yenkosi nendlu yombuso.”
14 Wayesephendula u-Amose, wathi ku-Amasiya: “Angisiye umprofethi mina, nendodana yomprofethi angisiyo, kepha ngangingumalusi, ngangitshala imithombe.

16 Manje yizwa izwi likaJehova lokuthi: Wena uthi: “ ‘Ungaprofethi ngo-Israyeli, ungaconsisi izwi lakho phezu kwendlu ka-Isaka.’
17 “Ngalokho usho kanje uJehova, uthi: “ ‘Umkakho uyakufeba emzini, namadodana akho namadodakazi akho ayakuwa ngenkemba, nezwe liyakudatshulwa ngentambo; wena uyakufela ezweni elingcolileyo, u-Israyeli athunjwe nokuthunjwa ezweni lakhe.’ ”
