Summary of Amos

Date: 6th Century B.C.E.

Description: The first verve of Amos sets the text in the days of Uzziah, king of Judah, and Jero­boam, king of Israel - from our perspective, the 8th century BCE. It deals mainly with the malady of Israel, its condemnation, and the future restoration and glory of Israel within a friendly, renewed physical world. When it condemns Israel, it repeatedly stresses social and political ills.
