Мысли вслух на Amo 6:1-14

1 Woe to those who are at ease in Zion
And to those who feel secure in the mountain of Samaria,
The distinguished men of the foremost of nations,
To whom the house of Israel comes.
2 Go over to Calneh and look,
And go from there to Hamath the great,
Then go down to Gath of the Philistines.
Area Or youthey better than these kingdoms,
Or is their territory greater than yours?
3 Do you put off the day of calamity,
And would you bring near the seat of violence?
4 Those who recline on beds of ivory
And sprawl on their couches,
And eat lambs from the flock
And calves from the midst of the stall,
5 Who improvise to the sound of the harp,
And like David haveb Or invented musical instrumentscomposed songs for themselves,
6 Who drink wine fromc Lit sprinkling basinssacrificial bowls
While they anoint themselves with the finest of oils,
Yet they have not grieved over the ruin of Joseph.
7 Therefore, they will now go into exile at the head of the exiles,
And the sprawlers’d Or cultic feastsbanqueting wille Lit turn asidepass away.
8 The Lordf Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGOD has sworn by Himself, the LORD God of hosts has declared:
“I loathe the arrogance of Jacob,
Andg Lit hatedetest his citadels;
Therefore I will deliver up the city andh Lit its fullnessall it contains.”
9 And it will be, if ten men are left in one house, they will die. 10 Then one’si Or beloved oneuncle, or hisj Lit one who burns himundertaker, will lift him up to carry out his bones from the house, and he will say to the one who is in the innermost part of the house, “Is anyone else with you?” And that one will say, “No one.” Then he willk Lit sayanswer, “Keep quiet. Forl Lit not to make mention of the name ofthe name of the LORD is not to be mentioned.” 11 For behold, the LORD is going to command that the great house be smashed to pieces and the small house to fragments.

“And they will afflict you from the entrance of Hamath

В сегодняшнем чтении описана ситуация, хорошо знакомая каждому верующему. Речь идёт о людях, которые, получив всё, что имеют, от Бога, совершенно забыли о Нём (ст. 1–2, 8). Им кажется, что полученное ими они получили по праву, и никто никогда не сможет у них этого отнять. Казалось бы, так живёт весь мир. Мало кто задумывается о заслуженности или незаслуженности того, что имеет, тем более, если оно, как говорят обычно в таких случаях, «нажито честным трудом». Для того, чтобы понять, насколько зависим человек от Бога в повседневной жизни, нужно иметь с Ним глубокие и устойчивые отношения.

Наверное, именно поэтому Бог не напоминает о Своих благодеяниях тем, кто мало знает или вообще ничего не знает о Нём. Ему не нужны последователи, идущие за Ним из тех побуждений, которые заставляют должника считаться с заимодавцем, ведь такие вынужденные отношения с любовью не имеют ничего общего. А вот Своему народу через пророка Он говорит о них прямо, упрекая его за то, что он забыл обо всём, что Бог для него сделал. Бог прямо говорит, что Израиль окружён народами, которые во всех отношениях его превосходят, и если он ещё не стёрт с лица земли, то лишь благодаря помощи Божьей, о которой народ вовсе не думает.

Почему же в данном случае Бог действует иначе? Быть может, именно потому, что речь идёт о Его народе. Ведь история еврейского народа неотделима от полученного им откровения, он и сформировался как нация во время Исхода, и не будь прямого вмешательства Божия в историю, еврейского народа просто не существовало бы. При таких обстоятельствах забывать о своих отношениях с Богом буквально смерти подобно, и Бог напоминает об этом жителям Северного Царства через Своего пророка.

Здесь перед нами не желание упрекнуть в неблагодарности или напомнить о сделанных раньше и делаемых по сей день благодеяниях, а напоминание о тех отношениях, без которых народа не станет, без которых он просто исчезнет с лица земли. И если Бог и упрекает здесь в чём-то Свой народ, то не столько в неблагодарности, сколько в том, что он забыл о тех отношениях, которые связывали когда-то его со своим Богом. С Богом, Который помнит всё. Даже тогда, когда люди были бы рады обо всём забыть.

Обличения Амоса продолжаются. Пророки всегда очень неудобны: только достигнешь чего-то для себя, расслабишься — тут как тут пророк, и все ему не так! Да кто ему дал такое право? Сердце, горящее любовью к Богу и страдающее от нашей разделенности с Ним. Поэтому Бог призывает его нести нам слова Господни и в каком-то смысле Сам говорит нам эти слова через Своего пророка (см., например, ст. 8 и 14). Жаждем ли мы их услышать, ищем ли мы их, соглашаемся ли мы найти их в том, что нам неприятно, что нас обличает?

На Amo 5:1-6:14
1 Hear this word which I take up for you as a dirge, O house of Israel:
2 She has fallen, she will not rise again—
The virgin Israel.
She lies neglected on her land;
There is none to raise her up.
3 For thus says the Lorda Heb YHWH, usually rendered Lord, and so throughout the chGOD,
“The city which goes forth a thousand strong
Will have a hundred left,
And the one which goes forth a hundred strong
Will have ten left to the house of Israel.”
4 For thus says the LORD to the house of Israel,
“Seek Me that you may live.
5 “But do notb Lit seekresort to Bethel
And do not come to Gilgal,
Nor cross over to Beersheba;
For Gilgal will certainly go into captivity
And Bethel willc Or become iniquitycome to trouble.
6 “Seek the LORD that you may live,
Or He will break forth like a fire,d Or in the houseO house of Joseph,
And it will consume with none to quench it for Bethel,
7 For those who turn justice into wormwood
Ande Lit they have put downcast righteousness down to the earth.”
8 He who made the Pleiades and Orion
And changes deep darkness into morning,
f Lit And He darkenedWho also darkens day into night,
Who calls for the waters of the sea
And pours them out on the surface of the earth,
The LORD is His name.
9 It is He who flashes forth with destruction upon the strong,
So that destruction comes upon the fortress.
10 They hate him who reproves in theg I.e. the place where court was heldgate,
And they abhor him who speaks with integrity.
11 Therefore because youh Another reading is trample uponimpose heavy rent on the poor
And exact a tribute of grain from them,
Though you have built houses of well-hewn stone,
Yet you will not live in them;
You have planted pleasant vineyards, yet you will not drink their wine.
12 For I know your transgressions are many and your sins are great,
You who distress the righteous and accept bribes
Andi Lit they turnturn aside the poor in thej I.e. the place where court was heldgate.
13 Therefore atk Lit that timesuch a time the prudent person keeps silent, for it is an evil time.
14 Seek good and not evil, that you may live;
And thus may the LORD God of hosts be with you,
Just as you have said!
15 Hate evil, love good,
And establish justice in thel I.e. the place where court was heldgate!
Perhaps the LORD God of hosts
May be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
16 Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, the Lord,
“There is wailing in all the plazas,
And in all the streets they say, ‘Alas! Alas!’
They also call the farmer to mourning
Andm Lit those who know lamentationprofessional mourners to lamentation.
17 “And in all the vineyards there is wailing,
Because I will pass through the midst of you,” says the LORD.
18 Alas, you who are longing for the day of the LORD,
For what purpose will the day of the LORD be to you?
It will be darkness and not light;
19 As when a man flees from a lion
And a bear meets him,
n Or ThenOr goes home, leans his hand against the wall
And a snake bites him.
20 Will not the day of the LORD be darkness instead of light,
Even gloom with no brightness in it?
21 “I hate, I reject your festivals,
Nor do Io Lit like to smelldelight in your solemn assemblies.
22 “Even though you offer up to Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings,
I will not accept them;
And I will not even look at the peace offerings of your fatlings.
23 “Take away from Me the noise of your songs;
I will not even listen to the sound of your harps.
24 “But let justice roll down like waters
And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
25 “p Or You presented Me with the sacrifices and a grain offeringDid you present Me with sacrifices and grain offerings in the wilderness for forty years, O house of Israel? 26 You also carried alongq Or Sakkuth (Saturn) or shrine of your MolochSikkuth your king andr Or Kaiwan (Saturn) or stands ofKiyyun, your images,s Or your star godsthe star of your gods which you made for yourselves. 27 Therefore, I will make you go into exile beyond Damascus,” says the LORD, whose name is the God of hosts.
1 Woe to those who are at ease in Zion
And to those who feel secure in the mountain of Samaria,
The distinguished men of the foremost of nations,
To whom the house of Israel comes.
2 Go over to Calneh and look,
And go from there to Hamath the great,
Then go down to Gath of the Philistines.
Area Or youthey better than these kingdoms,
Or is their territory greater than yours?

And would you bring near the seat of violence?

And calves from the midst of the stall,

And like David haveb Or invented musical instrumentscomposed songs for themselves,
6 Who drink wine fromc Lit sprinkling basinssacrificial bowls
While they anoint themselves with the finest of oils,
Yet they have not grieved over the ruin of Joseph.

Пророк Амос обличает народ Израиля в их грехах, суть которых — отсутствие любви, и предупреждает о грядущей катастрофе. Но цель пророчества — не напугать людей так, чтобы у них руки опустились, а подвигнуть их к изменению жизни. Пророчества — не столько предсказания, сколько педагогика. Поэтому главное здесь — не грядущие ужасы, а призыв к перевороту человеческих представлений (в этом смысл слова «покаяние») (Ам. 5:18-24) и восстановлению отношений с Богом (Ам. 5:4; 5:14-15).

И Амос продолжает. Пророки всегда очень неудобны: только достигнешь чего-то для себя, расслабишься — тут как тут пророк, и все ему не так! Да кто ему дал такое право? Сердце, горящее любовью к Богу и страдающее от нашей разделенности с Ним. Поэтому Бог призывает его нести нам слова Господни и в каком-то смысле Сам говорит нам эти слова через Своего пророка (см., например, ст. 8 и 14).
