Amos 5:10

They hate him that rebukes in the gate, and they abhor him that speaks uprightly.
Read Chapter 5

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
They, the wicked, could not endure Amos, (chap. vii. 12.) nor those who rebuked them.

Tertullian of Carthage

AD 220
They take the two sons as types of two peoples, the elder Jewish, the younger Christian…. But if I show that the Jew does not fit the type represented by the elder son, it will be admitted, in consequence, that the Christian is not typified by the younger. Admittedly, the Jew is called a “son” and an “elder son” since he is first by adoption, and although he resents the Christian’s reconciliation with God his Father (this is a point which our opponents seize upon most eagerly), yet the statement “Behold, how many years I serve you and I have never transgressed your commandment” cannot be one which the Jew makes to the Father. For when was Judah not a transgressor of the law? “Hearing with the ear and not hearing, holding in hate him who reproves at the gates and scorning holy speech.”

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
