Commentary: Amos’ introduction is brief before he begins pronouncing judgement on neighboring kingdoms, along with one of their crimes, and on Israel and Judah. Of course, all nations had committed more sins than what was listed by Amos, and their sins continued far into the past. Amos demonstrates who actions are liked to other actions. He condemns these sinful actions and warns that Israel will be punished for its iniquities.
Focus Verses: 2:4-7 What are the sins of Israel and Judah? Are any of these sins reflected in your life? Do you need to make changes in your life?
