Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 7:9

_ _ high places — dedicated to idols.

_ _ of Isaac — They boasted of their following the example of their forefather Isaac, in erecting high places at Beer-sheba (Amos 5:5; compare Genesis 26:23, Genesis 26:24; Genesis 46:1); but he and Abraham erected them before the temple was appointed at Jerusalem — and to God; whereas they did so, after the temple had been fixed as the only place for sacrifices — and to idols. In the Hebrew here “Isaac” is written with s, instead of the usual ts; both forms mean “laughter”; the change of spelling perhaps expresses that their “high places of Isaac” may be well so called, but not as they meant by the name; for they are only fit to be laughed at in scorn. Probably, however, the mention of “Isaac” and “Israel” simply expresses that these names, which their degenerate posterity boasted in as if ensuring their safety, will not save them and their idolatrous “sanctuaries” on which they depended from ruin (compare Amos 8:14).

_ _ house of Jeroboam with ... sword — fulfilled in the extinction of Zachariah, son of Jeroboam II, the last of the descendants of Jeroboam I, who had originated the idolatry of the calves (2 Kings 15:8-10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 7:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
