    This page is part of the Hypertext Bible Commentary - Amos commentary, if you have reached it as a standalone page, to view it in context, go to www. The writings of Joel bear the full impress of culture in a prophetic school. Malachi spoke about the social and religious problems of the return to Zion: neglect of sacrifices Malachi and intermarriage Malachi Haggai and Zechariah were contemporaries Ezra ;

    This section is seen by Jews as describing an actual king, a descendant of their great king, David, who will make Judah a great kingdom and Jerusalem a truly holy city. Rather, each book in the Major Prophets is long, while the books in the Minor Prophets are relatively short. Verse 3. This did not influence my thoughts regarding the work.

    He wrote after the fall of Thebes in Egypt Nahumcirca B. Micah - Micah Yet they were in a depressed condition, dispirited, and disposed to complain of the severity of God's dealings towards them. Instead of driving their enemies before them sword in hand, as in the days of Joshua, or reigning triumphantly over them in peace, as in the days of Solomon, they found themselves a handful of weak colonists under the dominion of foreigners, and returning to the land of their fathers solely by their permission. The original translators are identified at the head of each commentary. While rendering to God a service that was not cheerful but grudging, complaining of its wearisomeness, withholding the tithes required by the law of Moses, and offering in sacrifice the lame and the blind, they yet complained that he did not notice and requite these heartless services, and talked as if he favored the proud and wicked.

The book of the twelve prophets book

This article will provide a brief overview of the Bible books known as the Minor Prophets -- which is a sub-genre of the prophetic books in the Old Testament. Containing three chapters, Habakkuk combines lamentation and oracle.

While the subject matter in the Book s of Samuel is also covered by the narrative in Chroniclesit is noticeable that the section 2 Sam.

The first six chapters constitute the first of these parts. For such multiplied transgressions God will cause the sun to go down at noon, and darken the earth in the clear day.

Their feasts shall be turned into mourning, their songs into lamentation, and they shall go into captivity beyond Damascus. After an initial call to repentance chapter 1, verses 1—6Zechariah had a series of eight visions chapter 1, verse 7 to chapter 6, verse The few alleged Chaldaisims found in it may be explained as belonging to the provincial dialect of the prophet; since we have but an imperfect knowledge of the variations which the living Hebrew language admitted in this respect.

The works are commonly studied together, and are consistently ordered in Jewish, Protestant and Catholic Bibles. In many Orthodox Christian Bibles they are ordered according to the Septuagint. While it is not known with certainty, scholarly speculation believes that the order of the first six was likely determined by length with the exception of Jonah which was moved to the end of that sub-group perhaps due to its very different character.

The immediate occasion of his prophecies is a double plague of drought and locusts, which has already invaded the land, and whose desolating progress he describes in poetic strains of matchless elegance and power.

This in some ways echoes House's sin, punishment and restoration schema. The book essentially consists of three parts: The history of the conquest of the land 1— They also contain a prediction of the final reunion and restoration of "the house of Judah" and "the house of Joseph" ch.

But, as Keil and others have remarked, the mention of the king's children may have been added simply to indicate the universality of the approaching visitation; not to say that the prophetic vision of Zephaniah may have anticipated the sin and punishment of these king's children -- Jehoahaz and Jehoiakim.

The prophecies concerning them can be summarized as saying that God is the God of the whole earth, and that nations which think of themselves as secure in their own power might well be conquered by other nations, at God's command. Hosea - Hosea Habakkuk - Habakkuk Zephaniah - Zephaniah The Talmud BB 14b states that the 12 were gathered together because otherwise, "as they are small, they might be lost.

The Book of Obadiah: Incidentally, this was probably not the same Obadiah mentioned above in 1 Kings The Book of Haggai is a book of the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh, and has its place as the antepenultimate of the Minor Prophets or the “Book of the Twelve.” [1] It is a short book, consisting of only two chapters.

The historical setting dates around BCE before the Temple has been rebuilt. Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadia, Yonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Chagai, Zechariah, and Malachi The Twelve Prophets (Trei-Assar) Why were twelve prophets lumped into this one book labeled: “The Twelve?” Do these prophets have more in common with each other than with Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel?

Our rabbis tell us that the reason a single book [ ]. This is a glittering new translation of the portion of the Hebrew Bible known as the Book of the Twelve Prophets, or the Twelve 'Minor' Prophets.

In the Bible, the books of the prophets are arranged in rough order of length. The present group of writings thus appears after the so-called 'major' prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel), and includes the much shorter texts of Hosea, Joel, Amos Pages: The Book of The Twelve Prophets Vol.
