In this chapter we have, I. God contending with Israel, by the judgments, but are reprieved, and the judgments turned away at the prayer of Amos, Amos 7:1-6. 2. God’s patience is at length worn out by their obstinacy, and they are rejected, and sentenced to utter ruin, Amos 7:7-9. II. Israel contending with God, by the opposition given to his prophet. 1. Amaziah informs against Amos (Amos 7:10, 11) and does what he can to rid the country of him as a public nuisance, Amos 7:12, 13. 2. Amos justifies himself in what he did as a prophet (Amos 7:14, 15) and denounces the judgments of God against Amaziah his prosecutor (Amos 7:16, 17); for, when the contest is between God and man, it is easy to foresee, it is very easy to foretel, who will come off with the worst of it.
