    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:7

    Por tanto, ahora pasarán en el principio de los que a cautividad pasaren, y el banquete de los que se extienden sobre sus lechos será quitado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 6:7

    Verse 7. With the first that go captive] The
    house of Israel shall be carried into captivity before the house of Judah.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive , etc.] That is, these
    men, who were the first and chief in the nation, who would not believe the day of Israel’s captivity would ever come; or, however, had very distant apprehensions of it; but indulged and gratified their several senses of tasting, hearing, smelling, in a carnal way, and had no sympathy with and compassion upon their afflicted brethren; these should be the first the enemy should lay hold upon, and carry captive; as we find the royal family, the princes and nobles, the courtiers and chief tradesmen, were the first that were carried captive of the Jews, in Jeconiah’s captivity, ( 2 Kings 24:12,14); and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed ; that stretched themselves upon couches, ( Amos 6:4); they shall have no more banquets or feasting bouts to attend to, by stretching themselves out, and lying upon couches at their ease; these shall be taken from them; and be glad of bread and water in an enemy’s country, without a couch to recline upon. Some understand this of a funeral banquet, as in ( Jeremiah 16:5); and so the sense is, that when they die, they shall not have that honour done to their memory, as to have a funeral feast provided for those that attend their burial, as was customary. Kimchi interprets it, “the mourning [of such] shall draw nigh” f170 ; and according to his father, Joseph Kimchi, the word in the Arabic language signifies to lift up the voice, either in mourning or joy; and so may signify, that as all feasts, and the joy that attends them, should be removed, which is the sense of the Targum, instead of that, mourning should take place; or they should be deprived of the common ceremony at death of mourning men and women.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - Those are looked upon as doing well for themselves, who do well for their bodies; but we are here told what their ease is, and what their woe is. Here is a description of the
    pride, security, and sensuality for which God would reckon. Careless sinners are every where in danger but those at ease in Zion, who are stupid, vainly confident, an abusing their privileges, are in the greatest danger. Yet many fanc themselves the people of God, who are living in sin, and in conformit to the world. But the examples of others' ruin forbid us to be secure Those who are set upon their pleasures are commonly careless of the troubles of others, but this is great offence to God. Those who place their happiness in the pleasures of sense, and set their hearts upo them, shall be deprived of those pleasures. Those who try to put the evil day far from them, find it nearest to them.
