Amos 6* The danger of luxury and false security. (1-7) Punishments ofsins. (8-14)1-7 Those are looked upon as doing well for themselves, who dowell for their bodies; but we are here told what their ease is,and what their woe is. Here is a description of the pride,security, and sensuality, for which God would reckon. Carelesssinners are every where in danger; but those at ease in Zion,who are stupid, vainly confident, and abusing their privileges,are in the greatest danger. Yet many fancy themselves the peopleof God, who are living in sin, and in conformity to the world.But the examples of others' ruin forbid us to be secure. Thosewho are set upon their pleasures are commonly careless of thetroubles of others, but this is great offence to God. Those whoplaced their happiness in the pleasures of sense, and set theirhearts upon them, shall be deprived of those pleasures. Thosewho try to put the evil day far from them, find it nearest tothem. 8-14 How dreadful, how miserable, is the case of those whoseeternal ruin the Lord himself has sworn; for he can execute hispurpose, and none can alter it! Those hearts are wretchedlyhardened that will not be brought to mention God's name, and toworship him, when the hand of God is gone out against them, whensickness and death are in their families. Those that will not betilled as fields, shall be abandoned as rocks. When our servicesof God are soured with sin, his providences will justly be madebitter to us. Men should take warning not to harden theirhearts, for those who walk in pride, God will destroy.
