Daily Verse Reading – Amos 6:1, 4-7

Woe to the Complacent

6 Woe to you who are complacent in Zion,amos-5-12-they-take-a-bribe-1
and to you who feel secure on Mount Samaria,
you notable men of the foremost nation,
to whom the people of Israel come!

You lie on beds adorned with ivory
and lounge on your couches.
You dine on choice lambs
and fattened calves.
5 You strum away on your harps like David
and improvise on musical instruments.
6 You drink wine by the bowlful
and use the finest lotions,
but you do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph.
7 Therefore you will be among the first to go into exile;
your feasting and lounging will end.

New International Version (NIV)
