_ _ Rabbah — the capital of Ammon: meaning “the Great.” Distinct from Rabbah of Moab. Called Philadelphia, afterwards, from Ptolemy Philadelphus.

_ _ tempest — that is, with an onset swift, sudden, and resistless as a hurricane.

_ _ day of the whirlwind — parallel to “the day of battle”; therefore meaning “the day of the foe’s tumultuous assault.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 1:3-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 1:14

With a tempest — With irresistible force, and surprising swiftness.
