Amos 3

Scofield's Reference NotesScofield's Notes

Verse 1

whole family

The language here, and the expression "house of Jacob," Amos 3:13 evidently gives the prophecy a wider application than to "Israel," the ten-tribe northern kingdom, though the judgment was, in the event, executed first upon the northern kingdom. 2 Kings 17:18-23.

Verse 2

therefore

It is noteworthy that Jehovah's controversy with the Gentile cities which hated Israel is brief: "I will send a fire." But Israel had been brought into the place of privilege and so of responsibility, and the Lord's indictment is detailed and unsparing. Cf. Matthew 11:23; Luke 12:47; Luke 12:48.
