Amos 7:12-13

Context

7:12 Amaziah then said to Amos, “Leave, you visionary! 1  Run away to the land of Judah! Earn your living 2  and prophesy there! 7:13 Don’t prophesy at Bethel 3  any longer, for a royal temple and palace are here!” 4 

1 tn Traditionally, “seer.” The word is a synonym for “prophet,” though it may carry a derogatory tone on the lips of Amaziah.

2 tn Heb “Eat bread there.”

3 map For location see Map4 G4; Map5 C1; Map6 E3; Map7 D1; Map8 G3.

4 tn Heb “for it is a temple of a king and it is a royal house.” It is possible that the phrase “royal house” refers to a temple rather than a palace. See S. M. Paul, Amos (Hermeneia), 243.
