Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 7:2

_ _ by whom shall Jacob arise? — If Thou, O God, dost not spare, how can Jacob maintain his ground, reduced as he is by repeated attacks of the Assyrians, and erelong about to be invaded by the Assyrian Pul (2 Kings 15:19, 2 Kings 15:20)? Compare Isaiah 51:19. The mention of “Jacob” is a plea that God should “remember for them His covenant” with their forefather, the patriarch (Psalms 106:45).

_ _ he is small — reduced in numbers and in strength.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 7:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 7:2

It came to pass — In the vision. By whom — How shall any of Jacob escape, if thou dost cast him down?
