amos 5:13 Therefore, at such a time the prudent person keeps silent, for it is an evil time.

< Amos 5:12
Amos 5:14 >

      13. the prudent--the spiritually wise.
      shall keep silence--not mere silence of tongue, but the prudent shall keep himself quiet from taking part in any public or private affairs which he can avoid: as it is "an evil time," and one in which all law is set at naught. Eph 5:16 refers to this. Instead of impatiently agitating against irremediable evils, the godly wise will not cast pearls before swine, who would trample these, and rend the offerers (Mt 7:6), but will patiently wait for God's time of deliverance in silent submission (Ps 39:9).
