Amos (Biblical book)

From A Storehouse of Knowledge
Jump to: navigation, search

The book of Amos is one of the books of the Old Testament, grouped as one of the twelve minor prophets. It records the prophetic visions of a man named Amos. The most famous part of the book is a vision where God uses a plumb line to measure the straightness (read righteousness) of the nation of Israel, as a tradesman measures the straightness of a building or piece of furniture, and finds it to be less than perfect. Christians taking inspiration from Amos hold a spiritual plumb line up to their own lives as a first step to confession, repentance and ultimate absolution.
