Bible: Amos 8:7-9

8:7 The Lord confirms this oath 1  by the arrogance of Jacob: 2 

“I swear 3  I will never forget all you have done! 4 

8:8 Because of this the earth 5  will quake, 6 

and all who live in it will mourn.

The whole earth 7  will rise like the River Nile, 8 

it will surge upward 9  and then grow calm, 10  like the Nile in Egypt. 11 

8:9 In that day,” says the sovereign Lord, “I will make the sun set at noon,

and make the earth dark in the middle of the day. 12
