Amos 3:9 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Publish in the palaces - The housetops or flat roofs were the places from which public declarations were made. See on Isaiah 21:1 (note), and on Matthew 10:27 (note). See whether in those places there be not tumults, oppressions, and rapine sufficient to excite my wrath against them.

"The will of the Lord be done." Our soul, when through infirmity she is tempted to rebellion, nevertheless struggles after complete

The Sovereignty of God in Reprobation
"Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God" (Rom. 11:22). In the last chapter when treating of the Sovereignty of God the Father in Salvation, we examined seven passages which represent Him as making a choice from among the children of men, and predestinating certain ones to be conformed to the image of His Son. The thoughtful reader will naturally ask, And what of those who were not "ordained to eternal life?" The answer which is usually returned to this question, even by those who profess
