Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible
Book: Amos
Chapters: 1 · 2 · 3 · 4 · 5 · 6 · 7 · 8 · 9 ·

Amos was a Herdsman, and engaged in Agriculture. But the same
Divine Spirit influenced Isaiah and Daniel in the Court, and
Amos in the Sheep-folds, giving to each the powers and eloquence
needful for them. He assures the twelve tribes of the
Destruction of the neighbouring nations; and as they at that
time gave themselves up to wickedness and Idolatry, he reproves
the Jewish nation with severity; but describes the restoration
of the Church By the Messiah, extending to the latter days.
