Bible: Amos 9:11-15

The Restoration of the Davidic Dynasty

9:11In that day I will rebuild the collapsing hut 1  of David.

I will seal its 2  gaps,

repair its 3  ruins,

and restore it to what it was like in days gone by. 4 

9:12 As a result they 5  will conquer those left in Edom 6 

and all the nations subject to my rule.” 7 

The Lord, who is about to do this, is speaking!

9:13Be sure of this, 8  the time is 9  coming,” says the Lord,

“when the plowman will catch up to the reaper 10 

and the one who stomps the grapes 11  will overtake 12  the planter. 13 

Juice will run down the slopes, 14 

it will flow down all the hillsides. 15 

9:14 I will bring back my people, Israel; 16 

they will rebuild the cities lying in rubble 17  and settle down. 18 

They will plant vineyards and drink the wine they produce; 19 

they will grow orchards 20  and eat the fruit they produce. 21 

9:15 I will plant them on their land

and they will never again be uprooted from the 22  land I have given them,”

says the Lord your God.
