The Scofield Bible Commentary, by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, [1917], at

Amos Chapter 1

Amos 1:2

amo 1:2


"Roar," etc.

Compare (Isa 42:13); (Jer 25:30-33); (Hos 11:10); (Hos 11:11); (Joe 3:16).

It will be found that wherever the phrase occurs it is connected with the destruction of Gentile dominion

(see "Times of the Gentiles," (Luk 21:24).

(See Scofield) - (Rev 16:19)

and the blessing of Israel in the kingdom. Without a doubt a near fulfilment upon Syria occurred (Kg2 14:28) but the expression, "the Lord will roar," looks forward to a vaster fulfilment.

(See Scofield) - (Joe 1:4).
