Amos 1

Verse of the Day: V3 “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I
will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with
threshing instruments of iron:”

1.  Cruelty (V1-5)


V3 “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I
will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with
threshing instruments of iron:”

The holy God shall punish the people of Damascus for their cruelty as they used their
threshing instruments to beat and whip the people of Gilead.

2.  Slavery (V6-8)

V6 “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will
not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the whole
captivity, to deliver them up to Edom:”

God shall punish the people of Gaza for forcing the people of Israel to be their slaves, and
subsequently to be traded and sold to Edom.

3.  Dishonesty (V9-10)

V9 “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I
will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole
captivity to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant:”

God shall punish the people of Tyrus for their dishonesty with the people of Israel.

4.  Revenge (V11-12)


V11 “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will
not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did pursue his brother with the
sword, and did cast off all pity, and his anger did tear perpetually, and he kept his
wrath for ever.”

God shall punish the people of Edom for their revenge upon the people of Israel.

5.  Wickedness (V13-15)

V13 “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and
for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up
the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:”

God shall punish the people of Ammon for ripping open the pregnant women of Gilead.

Prayer of the Day:

Dearest God, please help me to be godly and holy to escape Your punishment.
