9 I will listen to what the Lord God may be saying to me. For he will speak peace to his people, and to his saints, and to those who are being converted to the heart.
10 So then, truly his salvation is near to those who fear him, so that glory may inhabit our land.
11 Mercy and truth have met each other. Justice and peace have kissed.
12 Truth has risen from the earth, and justice has gazed down from heaven.
13 For so will the Lord give goodness, and our earth will give her fruit.
14 Justice will walk before him, and he will set his steps upon the way.
12 And Amaziah said to Amos, "You, seer, go out and flee into the land of Judah, and eat bread there, and prophesy there.
13 And in Bethel, do not prophesy any longer, because it is the king's sanctuary, and it is the house of the kingdom."
14 And Amos responded, and he said to Amasias, "I am not a prophet, and I am not the son of a prophet, but I am a herdsman plucking from wild fig trees.
15 And the Lord took me, when I was following the flock, and the Lord said to me, 'Go, prophesy to my people Israel.' "
