This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1885 edition. Excerpt: ...Israel shall surely be led captive out of his own land. This prophecy of Amos they placed in the 2ath year of Uzziah. Then his remaining 27 years, Jotham's 16, Ahaz 16, and the six first of Hezekiah would have made up the 65. This calculation was not necessarily connected with the error as to the supposed connection of the earthquake and the leprosy of Uzziah. But it is plain from the words of Isaiah, in yet' threescore and five j/ears, that he is dating from the time when he uttered the prophecy; and so the prophecy relates, not to the imperfect captivity which ended the kingdom of Israel, but to that more complete deportation under Esarhaddon r, when the ten tribes ceased to be any more a people (Ahaz 14, Hezekich 29, Manasseh 22, in all 65). Neither then does this fix the date of Amos. Nor does the comparison, which Amos bids Israel make between his own borders, and those of Calneh, Hamath and Gath, determine the date of the prophecy. Since Uzziah brake down the walls of Gath, and Hamath was recovered by Jeroboam II. to Israel, it is probable that the point of comparison lay between the present disasters of these nations, and those with which Amos threatened Israel, and which the rich men of Israel practically did not believe. For it follows', ye that put far away the evil day. It is probable then that Caine (the very ancient city which subsequently became Ctesiphon, ) on the other side of the Euphrates, had lately in Euseh. & 8. Jer. ad. loc. found also in Rashi, Aben Ezra, Abarbenel. 'vii. 8. -vii. 11. 17.--t'2. 7 Ezr. iv. 2. 2 Chr. xxxiii. 11. 2 Kgs xvii. 24. 2 Chr. xxvi. 0. 2Kgsxiv. 28. - Am. vi. 3. -Gen. x. 10. suffered from Assyria, as Gath and Hamath from Judah and Israel. But we know none of these dates. more
