ESV — Amos 6:5; Amos 8:3; Isaiah 5:12

jwho sing idle songs to the sound of the harp

and like David jinvent for themselves instruments of music,

eThe songs of the temple1 fshall become wailings2 in that day,”

declares the Lord God.

g“So many dead bodies!”

“They are thrown everywhere!”



[1] 8:3 Or palace
[2] 8:3 Or The singing women of the palace shall wail

12  jThey have lyre and harp,

tambourine and flute and wine at their feasts,

kbut they do not regard the deeds of the Lord,

or see the work of his hands.
