Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Amos 9:8

_ _ eyes ... upon the sinful kingdom — that is, I am watching all its sinful course in order to punish it (compare Amos 9:4; Psalms 34:15, Psalms 34:16).

_ _ not utterly destroy the house of Jacob — Though as a “kingdom” the nation is now utterly to perish, a remnant is to be spared for “Jacob,” their forefather’s sake (compare Jeremiah 30:11); to fulfil the covenant whereby “the seed of Israel” is hereafter to be “a nation for ever” (Jeremiah 31:36).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Amos 9:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Amos 9:8

The sinful kingdom — Every sinful kingdom.
