g BC before Israel fell to the Assyrians in 722 BC. Due to
that fact in his first cycle of judgment and restoration
(chapters 1-2:13) he included Israel (Samaria) in his
prophecy. After that, all references of Israel were actually
comments to Judah, the Southern Kingdom. Chapters six
and seven made up his final cycle which began on a
* gloomy note because of Judah's decadent society. The
prophet, like God was grieving
over the unbridled evil of his
people. He declared that look

searching for fruit after the
summer's harvest. None was to

prophets received pay for
favorable prophecies; and the
priests were silent! The last two
examples were not mentioned
directly in this chapter. No one
could be trusted while the fam

his hope was in God, his Savior. Judah's enemies were
warned not to gloat over their fate because God will
restore them in His time. They won't have to wonder
