9:15  Nevermore to be uprooted from the soil I have given them

An Israeli vineyard at sunset. By Rebecca Kowalsky.

Despite the predictions of punishments that will befall the Children of Israel, Amos ends his prophecy with a message of hope. He proclaims that the day will come when the people will return to the Land of Israel, build houses, plant vineyards and trees, and enjoy their fruits. This is reminiscent of the idyllic times described by Micha (4:4) when every man shall sit “Under his grapevine or fig tree with no one to disturb him.” Amos concludes by comparing the people to a sapling planted firmly in the ground. Their connection to the Land of Israel will never again be uprooted.

    One of the texts that most clearly shows that the profets spoke about more than the return from Babylon only. Since Ezra and Nehemia, Israel has been severely “uprooted from the soil” YHWH has given to them. We may hope and pray that the current return is the eternal one Amos sees.
