Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 5:27

_ _ beyond Damascus — In Acts 7:43 it is “beyond Babylon,” which includes beyond Damascus. In Amos’ time, Damascus was the object of Israel’s fear because of the Syrian wars. Babylon was not yet named as the place of their captivity. Stephen supplies this name. Their place of exile was in fact, as he states, “beyond Babylon,” in Halah and Habor by the river Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes (2 Kings 17:6; compare here Amos 1:5; Amos 4:3; Amos 6:14). The road to Assyria lay through “Damascus.” It is therefore specified, that not merely shall they be carried captives to Damascus, as they had been by Syrian kings (2 Kings 10:32, 2 Kings 10:33; 2 Kings 13:7), but, beyond that, to a region whence a return was not so possible as from Damascus. They were led captive by Satan into idolatry, therefore God caused them to go captive among idolaters. Compare 2 Kings 15:29; 2 Kings 16:9; Isaiah 8:4, whence it appears Tiglath-pileser attacked Israel and Damascus at the same time at Ahaz’ request (Amos 3:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
