SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:1 Â¶ El SEÑOR me enseñó así: Y he aquí un canastillo de fruta de verano.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 8:1 Verse 1. A basket of summer fruit.] As summer fruit was not proper for preserving, but must be eaten as soon as gathered, so the Lord intimates by this symbol that the kingdom of Israel was now ripe for destruction, and that punishment must descend upon it without delay. Some think the prophet means the fruits at the end of autumn. And as after the autumn no fruit could be expected, so Israel's summer is gone by, her autumn is ended, and she shall yield no more fruit. Or, the autumn of her iniquity is come, the measure is filled up, and now she shall gather the fruit of her sin in the abundance of her punishment.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Thus hath the Lord God showed unto me , etc.] Another vision, which is the fourth, and after the following manner: and, behold, a basket of summer fruit ; not of the first ripe fruit, but of such as were gathered at the close of the summer, when autumn began. So the Targum, “the last of the summer fruit;” such as were fully ripe, and would not keep till winter; or, if kept, would rot; but must be eaten directly, as some sort of apples, grapes, etc. denoting the people of Israel being ripe for destruction, and would be quickly devoured by their enemies; and that, as they had had a summer of prosperity, they would now have a sharp winter of adversity.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-3 - Amos saw a basket of summer fruit gathered, and ready to be eaten which signified, that the people were ripe for destruction, that the year of God's patience was drawing towards a conclusion. Such summe fruits will not keep till winter, but must be used at once. Yet thes judgments shall not draw from them any acknowledgement, either of God' righteousness or their own unrighteousness. Sinners put off repentanc from day to day, because they think the Lord thus delays his judgments.
