A contemporary of Hosea, Isaiah and Micah, a wealthy man, he tended sheep and sycamore trees before G-d called upon him to prophesy in 621 BCE. His prophecies demand fair treatment of the poor and sincere worship of G-d. His calls for repentance were unwelcome in the Northern Kingdom of Israel and prompted calls for his banishment.

Amos, the book of: The book of Tanach containing Amos' prophecies, foretelling the destruction of Israel's neighbors and warning of Israel's impending devastation if they don't serve G-d wholeheartedly and deal honestly with their fellows. Amos also prophesies concerning the future redemption.
