Joel 3:16 – Amos 1:2!!!

RS – is this possible?

Joel 3

A.(16) The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

B.(17) So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain:

C. then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

D.(18) And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.

C’.(19) Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. (20) But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.

B’.(21) For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.

Amos 1

A’.(1) The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake. (2) And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.

One thought on “Joel 3:16 – Amos 1:2!!!”

  1. I noticed this this morning while doing the reading – it certainly seems to fit, and Joel 3 and Amos 1 are similar in some ways – both have messages about judgement for the nations.
