the great: then go down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than
these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border?
AMO 6:3 Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of
violence to come near;
AMO 6:4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their
couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the
midst of the stall;
AMO 6:5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves
instruments of musick, like David;
AMO 6:6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief
ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.
