amos 8:14 "[As for] those who swear by the guilt of Samaria, Who say, 'As your god lives, O Dan,' And, 'As the way of Beersheba lives,' They will fall and not rise again."

< Amos 8:13
Amos 9:1 >

      14. swear by the sin of Samaria--namely, the calves (De 9:21; Ho 4:15). "Swear by" means to worship (Ps 63:11).
      The manner--that is, as "the way" is used (Ps 139:24; Ac 9:2), the mode of worship.
      Thy god, O Dan--the other golden calf at Dan (1Ki 22:26-30).
      liveth . . . liveth--rather, "May thy god . . . live . . . may the manner . . . live." Or, "As (surely as) thy god, O Dan, liveth." This is their formula when they swear; not "May Jehovah live!" or, "As Jehovah liveth!"
