Seek good, and not evil, that you may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as you have spoken.
All Commentaries on Amos 5:14 Go To Amos 5
Ambrose of Milan
Let us hurry to him in whom is that highest good, since he is goodness itself. He is the patience of Israel calling you to repentance, so you will not come to judgment but may receive the remission of sins. “Repent,” he says. He is the one of whom the prophet Amos cries, “Seek you good.” He is the highest good, for he needs nothing and abounds in all things. Well may he abound, for in him dwells bodily the fullness of divinity. Well may he abound, of whose fullness we have all received, and in whom we have been filled, as the Evangelist says.
