Bible: Amos 8:9-13

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. 1 

8:10 I will turn your festivals into funerals, 2 

and all your songs into funeral dirges.

I will make everyone wear funeral clothes 3 

and cause every head to be shaved bald. 4 

I will make you mourn as if you had lost your only son; 5 

when it ends it will indeed have been a bitter day. 6 

8:11 Be certain of this, 7  the time is 8  coming,” says the sovereign Lord,

“when I will send a famine through the land

not a shortage of food or water

but an end to divine revelation! 9 

8:12 People 10  will stagger from sea to sea, 11 

and from the north around to the east.

They will wander about looking for a revelation from 12  the Lord,

but they will not find any. 13 

8:13 In that day your 14  beautiful young women 15  and your 16  young men will faint from thirst. 17
