SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:9 Â¶ Haced pregonar sobre los palacios de Azoto, y sobre los palacios de la tierra de Egipto, y decid: Reuníos sobre los montes de Samaria, y ved la gran opresión en medio de ella, y muchas violencias en medio de ella.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 3:9 Verse 9. Publish in the palaces] The housetops or flat roofs were the places from which public declarations were made. See on Isa. xxi. 1, and on Matthew x. 27. See whether in those places there be not tumults, oppressions, and rapine sufficient to excite my wrath against them.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 9. Publish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in the palaces in the land of Egypt , etc.] This is spoken to the prophets, to publish and declare in all the courts of the Philistines and Egyptians, and among all the princes and great men therein, the sins of the people of Israel, and the punishment God threatened them with; and let them, even these very Heathens, judge whether there was not a just proportion between them, and whether their sins did not deserve such calamities to be brought upon them, the Lord by his prophets had denounced; and say, assemble yourselves on the mountains of Samaria ; the metropolis of the ten tribes, ( Isaiah 7:9); and which was built upon a mountain, and several others were about it, and joined to it; where these princes of Ashdod or Azotus in Palestine, and of Egypt, are called to leave their courts, and meet together, to behold the iniquities committed by Israel, and to sit in judgment upon them, and declare their sense of what was just and fitting to be done to such a people: and behold the great tumults in the midst thereof ; the riots of its inhabitants, the noise of the mob committing all manner of outrages and wickedness: and the oppressed in the midst thereof ; the poor, the fatherless, and the widow, injured in their persons and properties, plundered of their substance, or defrauded of it.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-15 - That power which is an instrument of unrighteousness, will justly be brought down and broken. What is got and kept wrongfully, will not be kept long. Some are at ease, but there will come a day of visitation and in that day, all they are proud of, and put confidence in, shal fail them. God will inquire into the sins of which they have bee guilty in their houses, the robbery they have stored up, and the luxur in which they lived. The pomp and pleasantness of men's houses, do no fortify against God's judgments, but make sufferings the more grievou and vexatious. Yet a remnant, according to the election of grace, wil be secured by our great and good Shepherd, as from the jaws of destruction, in the worst times __________________________________________________________________
