SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:2 Y dijo: Â¿Qué ves, Amós? Y dije: Un canastillo de fruta de verano. Y el SEÑOR me dijo: Ha venido el fin sobre mi pueblo Israel; nunca más le pasaré.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 8:2 Verse 2. A basket of summer fruit] Åyq bwlk kelub kayits, the end is come-Åqh ab ba hakkets: here is a paronomasia or play upon the words kayits, summer fruit, and kets, the end, both coming from similar roots. See the note on Ezek. vii. 2, where there is a similar play on the same word.
I will not again pass by them any more.] I will be no longer their Guardian.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 2. And he said, Amos, what seest thou ? etc.] To quicken his attention, who might disregard it as a common thing; and in order to lead him into the design of it, and show him what it was an emblem of: and I said, a basket of summer fruit ; some render it “a hook” f213 , such as they pull down branches with to gather the fruit; and the word so signifies in the Arabic language f214 ; but the other is the more received sense of the word: then said the Lord unto me ; by way of explanation of the vision: the end is come upon my people Israel: the end of the kingdom of Israel; of their commonwealth and church state; of all their outward happiness and glory; their “summer [was] ended”, and they “not saved”, ( Jeremiah 8:20); all their prosperity was over; and, as the Targum, their “final punishment was come,” the last destruction threatened them f215 : I will not again pass by them any more ; pass by their offences, and forgive their sins; or pass by their persons, without taking notice of them, so as to afflict and punish them for their iniquities: or, “pass through them and more” now making an utter end of them; (see Gill on “ Amos 7:8”).
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.
