Bible: Amos 9:8-9

9:8 Look, the sovereign Lord is watching 1  the sinful nation, 2 

and I will destroy it from the face of the earth.

But I will not completely destroy the family 3  of Jacob,” says the Lord.

9:9For look, I am giving a command

and I will shake the family of Israel together with all the nations.

It will resemble a sieve being shaken,

when not even a pebble falls to the ground. 4
