The false gods (Am 5:26-5:26)

“You shall take up

Sakkuth,

As your king.

You shall take up

Kaiwan,

As your star-god.

These are your images,

That you made

For yourselves.”

Sakkuth and Kaiwan were Assyrian or Babylonian gods. The Israelites had made these images for themselves. They were made by humans, not like Yahweh, their true God.
