1 The wordes of Amos, who was among the heardmen of Tekoa, which hee sawe concerning Israel, in the daies of Uzziah King of Iudah, and in the dayes of Ieroboam the sonne of Ioash king of Israel, two yere before the earthquake.
5 I wil breake also the barre of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plaine of Auen: and him that holdeth the scepter from the house of Eden, and the people of Syria shall goe into captiuitie, vnto Kir, saith the Lord.
6 ¶ Thus saith the Lord, For three transgressions of Gaza, and for foure I will not turne away the punishment thereof: because they caried away captiue the whole captiuitie, to deliuer them vp to Edom.
8 And I wil cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the scepter from Ashkelon, and I wil turne mine hand against Ekron; and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord God.
9 ¶ Thus saith the Lord, For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for foure I wil not turne away the punishment thereof, because they deliuered vp the whole captiuitie to Edom, and remembred not the brotherly couenant.
11 ¶ Thus saith the Lord, For three transgressions of Edom, and for foure, I will not turne away the punishment thereof, because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pitie, and his anger did teare perpetually, and kept his wrath for euer.
13 ¶ Thus sayth the Lord, For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for foure, I wil not turne away the punishment thereof; because they haue ript vp the women with childe of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border.

Very intresting the word of God came to Amos when he was caring for the sheep not in an office carrying out business transuction,so what lesson can you learn from that as christian we are suppose to take care for oneanother also we should be against the oppression of the poor together misstreatment that may arise

Amos understood how the courts were supposed to protect the poor and administer true justice. Instead the courts were shamefully corrupt.

Amos also knew the history of Israel 's other enemies. He was using his historical knowledge to build a verbal bomb! That History was a type of the destruction coming upon modern Israel. most people don 't know who modern Israel is.

I was never to aware as now as to the reading of amos it , is a sorrowful passage hopefully with understanding of the holy spirit , God has become so angry that Judgement is passing many during this time and going to destroy many people who have made a mockery of him ,let us hear and know that he is God , before judgment comes upon us now ,like the earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes more than ever , mudslides , it speaks of a earthquake in this passage, all our weather conditions are strange all around the world at this time.

chapter1 especially 8,10,11 this three verses are talking about the punishment for philistine,tyre and edom if they do not repent God wil send fire upon this nations,because in ezekiel25,27and28 were warned. Now to us when we hear such let us repent and draw close to God because God will drop fire on us if we not repent.israel or its neighbours are not withus now who will God send fire upon the answer is us.

God 's warnings through Amos apply to America as well as Israel. Complacency by the churches and the citizens of this nation will bring God 's wrath down upon us. We 've allowed "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS " to be our bible instead of the Word of God.

Amos like most prophets warned of gods coming punishment for sin and injustice, we in America must take noted lest we be judge with the same punishment
