11 For, thus, saith Amos, By the sword, shall Jeroboam, die, - and, Israel, shall, surely be exiled, from off his own soil. 12 Then said Amaziah unto Amos, O seer, go flee thee away unto the land o Judah - and eat, there, bread, and, there, mayest thou prophesy; 13 But, at Bethel, not again, any more, mayest thou prophesy, - for, the holy place of the king, it is, and, the house of the kingdom, it is.
