A M O S.
In this chapter, I. God, by the prophet, proceeds
in a like controversy with Moab as before with other nations,
ver. 1-3. II. He shows what
quarrel he had with Judah, ver. 4,
5. III. He at length begins his charge against Israel,
to which all that goes before is but an introduction. Observe, 1.
The sins they are charged with—injustice, oppression, whoredom,
ver. 6-8. 2. The
aggravations of those sins—the temporal and spiritual mercies God
had bestowed upon them, for which they had made him such ungrateful
returns, ver. 9-12. 3.
God's complaint of them for their sins (ver. 13) and his threatenings of their ruin,
and their utter inability to prevent it, ver. 14-16.
