Biblical Limericks: Go Home and Pluck Your Figs

Said Amaziah to Amos, “You prig!
We don’t want prophecies here. You dig?
You’re noxious in Bethel;
stick around, you’ll catch hell.
Why don’t you go home and pluck your figs?

Amos 7: 10 – 13

While Amos was neglecting his duties as shepherd and fig plucker someone had to fill in for him, of course. Here's a tongue twister for Amos' replacement:

I am not the fig plucker, nor the fig plucker's son, but I will pluck the figs until the fig plucker comes.
