Amos 4:11

Context

4:11 “I overthrew some of you the way God 1  overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. 2 

You were like a burning stick 3  snatched from the flames.

Still you did not come back to me.”

The Lord is speaking!

1 tn Several English versions substitute the first person pronoun (“I”) here for stylistic reasons (e.g., NIV, NCV, TEV, CEV, NLT).

2 tn Heb “like God’s overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah.” The divine name may be used in an idiomatic superlative sense here, in which case one might translate, “like the great [or “disastrous”] overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah.”

sn The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is described in Gen 19:1-29.

3 tn Heb “like that which is burning.”
