Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 6:13

_ _ rejoice in a thing of naught — that is, in your vain and fleeting riches.

_ _ Have we not taken to us horns — that is, acquired power, so as to conquer our neighbors (2 Kings 14:25). Horns are the Hebrew symbol of power, being the instrument of strength in many animals (Psalms 75:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 6:8-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 6:13

Who rejoice — In your victories, alliances, and idols. Have we not — We have raised ourselves to greatness by our wisdom and courage.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Amos 6:13

Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us (p) horns by our own strength?

(p) That is, power and glory.
