Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be calamity in a city, and the LORD has not done it?
All Commentaries on Amos 3:6 Go To Amos 3
George Leo Haydock
Afraid. Yet you can hear these terrible truths without consternation! Will you therefore escape? (Calmet)
Evil. He speaks of the evil of punishments of war, famine, pestilence, desolution, but not of the evil of sin, of which God is not the author. (Challoner)
All evil of punishment is sent by God, either to reclaim sinners or to be the beginning of sorrows, if they die impenitent. (Worthington)
You know that He rewards or punishes. If, therefore, what I foretell come to pass, do not blame me.
