Amos 5

21 "I hate all your show and pretense—
  the hypocrisy of your religious festivals and solemn assemblies.
22 I will not accept your burnt offerings and grain offerings.
  I won't even notice all your choice peace offerings.
23 Away with your noisy hymns of praise!
  I will not listen to the music of your harps.
24 Instead, I want to see a mighty flood of justice,
  an endless river of righteous living.

  25 "Was it to me you were bringing sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wilderness, Israel?26 No, you served your pagan gods—Sakkuth your king god and Kaiwan your star god—the images you made for yourselves.27 So I will send you into exile, to a land east of Damascus,*" says the LORD, whose name is the God of Heaven's Armies.

5:26-27 Greek version reads No, you carried your pagan gods—the shrine of Molech, the star of your god Rephan, and the images you made for yourselves. So I will send you into exile, to a land east of Damascus. Compare Acts 7:43.

“The NLT second edition communicates the truth of the Gospel in a clear, understandable way that can help bring spiritual seeking people across the line of faith.”
