amos 5:6 "Seek the LORD that you may live, Lest He break forth like a fire, O house of Joseph, And it consume with none to quench [it] for Bethel,

< Amos 5:5
Amos 5:7 >

      6. break out like fire--bursting through everything in His way. God is "a consuming fire" (De 4:24; Isa 10:17; La 2:3).
      the house of Joseph--the kingdom of Israel, of which the tribe of Ephraim, Joseph's son, was the chief tribe (compare Eze 37:16).
      none to quench it in Beth-el--that is, none in Beth-el to quench it; none of the Beth-el idols on which Israel so depended, able to remove the divine judgments.
