Amos 7:10-15
(10) Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, “Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel. The land is not able to bear all his words. (11) “For thus Amos has said: ‘Jeroboam shall die by the sword, And Israel shall surely be led away captive From their own land.’” (12) Then Amaziah said to Amos: “Go, you seer! Flee to the land of Judah. There eat bread, And there prophesy. (13) But never again prophesy at Bethel, For it is the king’s sanctuary, And it is the royal residence.” (14) Then Amos answered, and said to Amaziah: “I was no prophet, Nor was I a son of a prophet, But I was a sheepbreeder And a tender of sycamore fruit. (15) Then the LORD took me as I followed the flock, And the LORD said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to My people Israel.’” (NKJVTM)
