    King James Bible - Amos 8:10

    And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

    World English Bible

    I will
    turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will make you wear sackcloth on all your bodies, and baldness on every head. I will make it like the mourning for an only son, and its end like a bitter day.

    Douay-Rheims - Amos 8:10

    And it shall come to pass in that
    day, saith the Lord God, that the sun shall go down at midday, and I will make the earth dark in the day of light:

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And I will
    turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end of it as a bitter day.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:10

    Y tornaré vuestras fiestas en lloro, y todos vuestros cantares en endechas; y haré poner cilicio sobre todo lomo, y peladura sobre toda cabeza; y la tornaré como en llanto de unigénito, y su postrimería como día amargo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 8:10

    Verse 10. I will
    turn your feasts into mourning] See on ver. 3.

    A bitter day.] A time of grievous calamity.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation , etc.] Either their religious feasts, the feasts of pentecost, tabernacles, and passover; at which three feasts there were eclipses of the sun, a few years after this prophecy of Amos, as Bishop Usher observes: the first was an eclipse of the sun about ten digits, in the year 3213 A.M. or 791 B.C., June twenty fourth, at the feast of pentecost; the next was almost twelve digits, about eleven years after, on November eighth, B.C., at the feast of the tabernacles; and the third was more than eleven digits in the following year, 779 B.C., on May fifth, at the feast of the passover; which the prophecy may literally refer to, and which might occasion great sorrow and concern, and especially at what they might be thought to forebode: but particularly this was fulfilled when these feasts could not be observed any longer, nor the songs used at them sung any more; or else their feasts, and songs at them, in their own houses, in which they indulged themselves in mirth and jollity; but now, instead thereof, there would be mourning and lamentation the loss of their friends, and being carried captive into a strange land; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins ; of high and low, rich and poor; even those that used to be covered with silk and rich embroideries: sackcloth was a coarse cloth put on in times of mourning for the dead, or on account of public calamities: and baldness upon every head : the hair being either shaved off or pulled off; both which were sometimes done, as a token of mourning: and I will make it as the mourning of an only [son] ; as when parents mourn for an only son, which is generally carried to the greatest height, and continued longest, as well as is most sincere and passionate; the case being exceeding cutting and afflictive, as this is hereby represented to be: and the end thereof as a bitter day ; a day of bitter calamity, and of bitter wailing and mourning, in the bitterness of their spirits; though the beginning of the day was bright and clear, a fine sunshine, yet the end of it dark and bitter, distressing and sorrowful, it being the end of the people of Israel, as in ( Amos 8:2).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 4-10 - The
    rich and powerful of the land were the most guilty of oppression as well as the foremost in idolatry. They were weary of the restraint of the sabbaths and the new moons, and wished them over, because n common work might be done therein. This is the character of many wh are called Christians. The sabbath day and sabbath work are a burden to carnal hearts. It will either be profaned or be accounted a dull day But can we spend our time better than in communion with God? When employed in religious services, they were thinking of marketings. The were weary of holy duties, because their worldly business stood stil the while. Those are strangers to God, and enemies to themselves, wh love market days better than sabbath days, who would rather be sellin corn than worshipping God. They have no regard to man: those who have lost the savour of piety, will not long keep the sense of commo honesty. They cheat those they deal with. They take advantage of their neighbour's ignorance or necessity, in a traffic which nearly concern the labouring poor. Could we witness the fraud and covetousness, which in such numerous forms, render trading an abomination to the Lord, we should not wonder to see many dealers backward in the service of God But he who thus despises the poor, reproaches his Maker; as it regard Him, rich and poor meet together. Riches that are got by the ruin of the poor, will bring ruin on those that get them. God will remembe their sin against them. This speaks the case of such unjust, unmercifu men, to be miserable indeed, miserable for ever. There shall be terro and desolation every where. It shall come upon them when they littl think of it. Thus uncertain are all our creature-comforts an enjoyments, even life itself; in the midst of life we are in death What will be the wailing in the bitter day which follows sinful an sensual pleasures!
