Amos Chapter 1
1 The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.
5 I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.
8 And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon, and I will turn mine hand against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord GOD.
9 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant:
11 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, and his anger did tear perpetually, and he kept his wrath for ever:
13 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:

AMOS WAS A HARD WORKING KIND OF MAN WHO GOD LOVED AND CALLED HIM TO BE HIS OWN MESSENGER.AMOS HEARD THE CALL AND HE STARTED DELIVERING THE MESSAGES OF GOD TO HIS PEOPLE IN ISRAEL. WE SEE THAT MANY PEOPLE REJECTED HIS MESSAGES BUT HE NEVER GAVE UP. AMOS IS THEREFORE seen as a good role model to many christians , in that though he was rejected by the sundry he still passed on his voice loud to them

Syria represents the ancient family who did not go with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to seek the One True and Living God Almighty; but clave to their idols and the heathen way. The Palestinians were heathen neighbors who NEVER repented, always made themselves enemies of the Lord. Tyre and Zidon were traitors and hypocrites and heathen at heart. Ammon were evil children whose parents were once saved.
