Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 4:12

_ _ Therefore — as all chastisements have failed to make thee “return unto Me.”

_ _ thus will I do unto thee — as I have threatened (Amos 4:2, Amos 4:3).

_ _ prepare to meet thy God — God is about to inflict the last and worst judgment on thee, the extinction of thy nationality; consider then what preparation thou canst make for encountering Him as thy foe (Jeremiah 46:14; Luke 14:31, Luke 14:32). But as that would be madness to think of (Isaiah 27:4; Ezekiel 22:14; Hebrews 10:31), see what can be done towards mitigating the severity of the coming judgment, by penitence (Isaiah 27:5; 1 Corinthians 11:31). This latter exhortation is followed up in Amos 5:4, Amos 5:6, Amos 5:8, Amos 5:14, Amos 5:15.
