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