You Are the Man
Amos so far has preached against the sins of the surrounding nations. But now that Amos has circled the nation of Israel in condemnation speeches, they suddenly realize that this makes them the bullseye of Amos’ targeted message!
Throughout the rest of chapter two, it is as though Israel has seen the destructive, long-reaching, accuracy of Amos’ cannon, and now find themselves looking down the barrel of the same gun.
It is like Nathan describing others, then turning to David, and saying “Thou art the man!” Or, to return to Amos’ imagery, the roaring Lion would not only devour surrounding nations in judgment, but would ravage them as well.
