Amos 2:4-16 – Judgment on Judah and Israel
SummaryAmos announces God's judgment on both Judah and Israel, the southern and northern kingdoms.
AnalysisAmos announces that, "because they have rejected the law of the Lord, and have not kept his statutes" (2:4), God will judge Judah and Israel. Amos cites specific violations of Israel's law (2:6-8, 12).
