Bible: Amos 5:4-6

5:4 The Lord says this to the family 1  of Israel:

“Seek me 2  so you can live!

5:5 Do not seek Bethel! 3 

Do not visit Gilgal!

Do not journey down 4  to Beer Sheba!

For the people of Gilgal 5  will certainly be carried into exile; 6 

and Bethel will become a place where disaster abounds.” 7 

5:6 Seek the Lord so you can live!

Otherwise he will break out 8  like fire against Joseph’s 9  family; 10 

the fire 11  will consume

and no one will be able to quench it and save Bethel. 12
