The Complacency of God's People - Part 2

(the LORD speaking to His people through Amos)

You put off the evil day
    and bring near a reign of terror.
You lie on beds inlaid with ivory
    and lounge on your couches.
You dine on choice lambs
    and fattened calves.
You strum away on your harps like David
    and improvise on musical instruments.
You drink wine by the bowlful
    and use the finest lotions,
    but you do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph.
Therefore you will be among the first to go into exile;
    your feasting and lounging will end.

Amos 6:3-7 (NIV)
