Amos 3:3-8 - The Prophet's Task
Do two men walk together unless they have made an appointment?
Does a lion roar in the forest when he has no prey?
Does a young lion growl from his den if he has not captured something?
Does a bird fall into a trap on the ground when there is no bait in it?
Does a trap spring up from the ground when it has caught nothing at all? [Of course not! So it is that Israel has earned her impending judgment.]
If a trumpet is blown in a city [warning of danger] will not the people tremble?
If a disaster or misfortune occurs in a city has not the Lord caused it?
Surely the Lord God does nothing
To His servants the prophets.
The lion has roared! Who will not fear?
The Lord God has spoken [to the prophets]! Who can but prophesy?
