SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:7 El SEÑOR juró por la gloria de Jacob: No me olvidaré para siempre de todas sus obras.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Amos 8:7 Verse 7. By the excellency of Jacob] By the state of eminence to which he had raised the descendants of Jacob; or, by the excellent ONE of Jacob, that is, HIMSELF. The meaning is: "As surely as I have raised you to such a state of eminence, so surely will I punish you in proportion to your advantages and your crimes.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. The Lord hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob , etc.] Not by the ark, as R. Japhet; nor by the temple, as Kimchi; but by himself; which sense Kimchi also mentions, and Aben Ezra; the God of Jacob and his glory, the most excellent of all Jacob’s enjoyments, and of whom he had reason to boast and glory; (see Amos 6:8); surely I will never forget any of their works ; their wicked works, especially those now mentioned; God forgets when he forgives them, or suffers them to go unpunished; but though he had done so long, he would do so no more; on which they might depend, since he had not only said it, but swore to it.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 4-10 - The rich and powerful of the land were the most guilty of oppression as well as the foremost in idolatry. They were weary of the restraint of the sabbaths and the new moons, and wished them over, because n common work might be done therein. This is the character of many wh are called Christians. The sabbath day and sabbath work are a burden to carnal hearts. It will either be profaned or be accounted a dull day But can we spend our time better than in communion with God? When employed in religious services, they were thinking of marketings. The were weary of holy duties, because their worldly business stood stil the while. Those are strangers to God, and enemies to themselves, wh love market days better than sabbath days, who would rather be sellin corn than worshipping God. They have no regard to man: those who have lost the savour of piety, will not long keep the sense of commo honesty. They cheat those they deal with. They take advantage of their neighbour's ignorance or necessity, in a traffic which nearly concern the labouring poor. Could we witness the fraud and covetousness, which in such numerous forms, render trading an abomination to the Lord, we should not wonder to see many dealers backward in the service of God But he who thus despises the poor, reproaches his Maker; as it regard Him, rich and poor meet together. Riches that are got by the ruin of the poor, will bring ruin on those that get them. God will remembe their sin against them. This speaks the case of such unjust, unmercifu men, to be miserable indeed, miserable for ever. There shall be terro and desolation every where. It shall come upon them when they littl think of it. Thus uncertain are all our creature-comforts an enjoyments, even life itself; in the midst of life we are in death What will be the wailing in the bitter day which follows sinful an sensual pleasures!
