God calls on the people to repent, warning them of impending judgment for their sins.

Amos 3 is a powerful chapter that speaks to the consequences of sin and the need for repentance. The Lord speaks through Amos to the people of Israel, warning them of the consequences of their sin and calling them to repentance. He begins by asking a rhetorical question: "Hear this word that the Lord has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family that I brought up out of the land of Egypt" (v. 1). This question serves to remind the people of their covenant relationship with God and the promises He made to them. The Lord then goes on to list the various sins of the people, including idolatry, injustice, and oppression. He warns them that if they do not repent, they will face the consequences of their sin. He says, "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord has not done it?" (v. 6). This serves as a reminder that God is in control and will not allow sin to go unpunished. The Lord then goes on to describe the destruction that will come upon the people if they do not repent. He says, "Therefore thus says the Lord God: 'An adversary shall be all around the land; he shall sap your strength from you, and your palaces shall be plundered'" (v. 11). This serves as a warning to the people that if they do not turn from their sin, they will face the consequences of their actions. Finally, the Lord calls the people to repentance, saying, "Seek good and not evil, that you may live; and so the Lord, the God
