Prepare to meet God (Am 4:12-4:12)

“Therefore thus,

I will do to you!

O Israel!

I will do this

To you!

Prepare to meet

Your God!

O Israel!”

Amos has Yahweh issue one last solemn warning. Yahweh has tried many things to get the attention of these northern Israelites. However, he finally told them that they would meet the judgment of God himself. They had to prepare for their own death.
