Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 6:11

_ _ commandeth, and he will smite — His word of command, when once given, cannot but be fulfilled (Isaiah 55:11). His mere word is enough to smite with destruction.

_ _ great house ... little house — He will spare none, great or small (Amos 3:15). Jerome interprets “the great house” as Israel, and “the small house” as Judah: the former being reduced to branches or ruins, literally, “small drops”; the latter, though injured with “clefts” or rents, which threaten its fall, yet still permitted to stand.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 6:8-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 6:11

For behold — It seems to be the continued speech of him who took care of the dead, Amos 6:10, God hath sent out war, famine, and pestilence. The great house — The palaces of great men shall have great breaches made in them, and the cottages of poor men shall, by lesser strokes, be ruined.
