Twisting the Intention of Your Words

A priest in Israel hated Amos for preaching against Israel’s sins. Amos had prophesied that Israel would go into captivity for all her sins. However, the priest spoke to the king, making it sound as though this was something that Amos wanted.
For thus Amos has said:
“Jeroboam shall die by the sword,
And Israel shall surely be led away captive
From their own land.'”
(Amos 7:11)
If you speak the truth and you do it kindly, it does not matter, people will still twist your words, or if they do not pervert what you said, they will give a false motive for what you said.
Be prepared, for it will surely happen.
