Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 7:13

_ _ prophesy not again — (Amos 2:12).

_ _ at Beth-el — Amaziah wants to be let alone at least in his own residence.

_ _ the king’s chapel — Beth-el was preferred by the king to Dan, the other seat of the calf-worship, as being nearer Samaria, the capital, and as hallowed by Jacob of old (Genesis 28:16, Genesis 28:19; Genesis 35:6, Genesis 35:7). He argues by implication against Amos’ presumption, as a private man, in speaking against the worship sanctioned by the king, and that in the very place consecrated to it for the king’s own devotions.

_ _ king’s court — that is, residence: the seat of empire, where the king holds his court, and which thou oughtest to have reverenced. Samaria was the usual king’s residence: but for the convenience of attending the calf-worship, a royal palace was at Beth-el also.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 7:10-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 7:13

The king's court — To which therefore thou oughtest to shew more respect, and not thus to affront the king in his own house.
