Amos 7:16; Isaiah 55:10-11

16 vNow therefore hear the word of the Lord.

You say, nDo not prophesy against Israel,

and wdo not preach against the house of xIsaac.


10  qFor as the rain and the snow come down from heaven

and do not return there but water the earth,

making it bring forth and sprout,

rgiving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,

11  so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;

it shall not return to me empty,

but sit shall accomplish that which I purpose,

and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
