Amos 8:1-3

Fruit that is ready to eat

1 Then the Lord God showed another vision to me. I saw a basket with summer fruit in it. 2 He asked me, ‘Amos, what do you see?’ I answered him, ‘I see a basket of summer fruit.’ Then the Lord said to me, ‘The time has now come to punish my people. I will not forgive them any longer.

3 On the day that I come to punish them, people will not sing in the temple. Instead they will weep loudly. There will be dead bodies everywhere. Be quiet now, because I have spoken, the Lord God.’
