amos 8:10 "Then I shall turn your festivals into mourning And all your songs into lamentation; And I will bring sackcloth on everyone's loins And baldness on every head. And I will make it like [a time of] mourning for an only son, And the end of it will be like a bitter day.

< Amos 8:9
Amos 8:11 >

      10. baldness--a sign of mourning (Isa 15:2; Jer 48:37; Eze 7:18).
      I will make it as . . . mourning of an only son--"it," that is, "the earth" (Am 8:9). I will reduce the land to such a state that there shall be the same occasion for mourning as when parents mourn for an only son (Jer 6:26; Zec 12:10).
