Amos 1‑9
Listen from:
Judgment pronounced upon the six troublesome nations remaining within the bounds of Palestine and upon idolatrous and hypocritical Israel, as well as privileged Judah, rehearsing the patience of God’s dealings in contrast to their wicked response, foretelling their captivities to Assyria and Babylon, with promises of future restoration and blessings when the tabernacle of David would be built up.
Only Amos, Hosea and Jonah were writing prophets of Israel; all others of Judah.
Amos has been thought likely to be the father of Isaiah but “Amos” and “Amoz” are quite different in the Hebrew.
B.C. 787.
