    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:6

    ¿Se tocará la trompeta en la ciudad, y no se alborotará el pueblo? ¿Habrá algún mal en la ciudad, el cual el SEÑOR no haya hecho?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 3:6

    Verse 6. Shall a
    trumpet be blown] The sign of alarm and invasion.

    And the people not be afraid?] Not take the alarm, and provide for their defense and safety? Shall there be evil in a city] Shall there be any public calamity on the wicked, that is not an effect of my displeasure? The word does not mean moral evil, but punishment for sin; calamities falling on the workers of iniquity. Natural evil is the punishment of moral evil: God sends the former when the latter is persisted in.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. Shall a trumpet be blown in the city , etc.] Meaning not any trumpet blown, as the silver trumpet for the gathering of the people to worship, or the jubilee trumpet, which proclaimed liberty to them, or any other, expressive of joy and gladness; but the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war, or what is blown by the watchmen on the walls, descrying an enemy, or some danger, near: and the people not be afraid ? they must, they usually are, lest their lives, and their children’s, should be taken away, and their substance become a prey to the enemy: or, “and the people not run together” f102 ; into some one place for shelter, or to consult together how to provide for their safety, and secure themselves from danger. So when the prophets of the Lord, by his order, lift up their voice like a trumpet, to show his people their transgressions; or when, as watchmen, they blow the trumpet, to give notice of approaching danger; can they hear such denunciations of his wrath for their sins, and not tremble at them, or not take some ways and methods to escape it? shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done [it] ? which is not to be understood of the evil of sin, of which God is not the author, it being contrary to his nature and will; and though he permits it to be done by others, yet he never does it himself, nor so much as tempts men to it, ( James 1:13,14); unless the words should be rendered, as they may be, “shall there be evil in a city, and shall not the Lord do” or “work” f103 ? shall sin be committed in a city, all sorts of sin, in the most bold and extravagant manner, and will not the Lord do something to show his resentment of it? is it not time for him to arise and work for his name’s sake? will he not visit for these things, and be avenged on such a city, and the inhabitants of it? but this may be interpreted of the evil of affliction or judgment; which, wherever it comes, is by the order and appointment of God, and is inflicted by him; thus evil, as well as good, comes out of the mouth and hand of the most High; and he creates the evil of adversity, as well as makes peace and prosperity; (see Job 2:10 Lamentations 3:38 Isaiah 45:7).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - The distinguishing favours of
    God to us, if they do not restrain from sin, shall not exempt from punishment. They could not expect communio with God, unless they first sought peace with him. Where there is no friendship, there can be no fellowship. God and man cannot wal together, except they are agreed. Unless we seek his glory, we cannot walk with him. Let us not presume on outward privileges, withou special, sanctifying grace. The threatenings of the word and providenc of God against the sin of man are certain, and certainly show that the judgments of God are at hand. Nor will God remove the affliction he ha sent, till it has done its work. The evil of sin is from ourselves, it is our own doing; but the evil of trouble is from God, and is his doing, whoever are the instruments. This should engage us patiently to bear public troubles, and to study to answer God's meaning in them. The whole of the passage shows that natural evil, or troubles, and no moral evil, or sin, is here meant. The warning given to a careles world will increase its condemnation another day. Oh the amazin stupidity of an unbelieving world, that will not be wrought upon by the terrors of the Lord, and that despise his mercies!
