The exile is coming (Am 5:27-5:27)

“‘Therefore,

I will take you

Into exile,

Beyond Damascus.’

Says Yahweh.

His name is

The God of hosts.”

Amos ends this chapter with an oracle from Yahweh, who was going to send them into exile, beyond Damascus into Assyria. This was Yahweh, the God of the heavenly armies or hosts.
