Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
During the time Uzziah was king of Judah and Jeroboam II of Israel, Amos, a shepherd from the subservient Judah speaks of the upcoming judgment, delayed but inevitable, against Israel's enemies, against Judah, and against Israel.
O God, please take care of my enemies, and I don't mean in a nice way.
Do you see someone who is hasty in speech?
There is more hope for a fool than for someone like that.
