Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 6:9

_ _ If as many as ten (Leviticus 26:26; Zechariah 8:23) remain in a house (a rare case, and only in the scattered villages, as there will be scarcely a house in which the enemy will leave any), they shall all, to a man, die of the plague, a frequent concomitant of war in the East (Jeremiah 24:10; Jeremiah 44:13; Ezekiel 6:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 6:8-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 6:9

Remain — Escaping the enemies sword. Ten men — Many men, a certain number for an uncertain. They shall die — Tho' they escape a while, they shall not finally escape.
