Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 3:15

_ _ winter ... summer house — (Judges 3:20; Jeremiah 36:22). Winter houses of the great were in sheltered positions facing the south to get all possible sunshine, summer houses in forests and on hills, facing the east and north.

_ _ houses of ivory — having their walls, doors, and ceilings inlaid with ivory. So Ahab’s house (1 Kings 22:39; Psalms 45:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 3:9-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 3:15

The winter — house — Which probably was in the chief city, whither the great men retired in the winter. The summer — house — The houses of pleasure, where the nobles and rich men spent the summer time. Of ivory — Beautified with ivory.
