Amos 2 continues with God’s indictments on the nations that began in chapter 1. It includes God’s pronouncement of judgment on the inhabitants of Moab, Judah, and Israel. The LORD pronounces judgment on Moab because they burn the bones of the king of Edom to lime (vv. 1–3). He pronounces judgment on Judah for violation of His covenantal laws (vv. 4–5). Finally, the LORD pronounces judgment on Israel because they commit greed, unjust oppression, gross immorality, and idolatry (vv. 6–16). God will severely punish Israel because they have completely ignored His covenant relationship.
