  1. The divine pyromaniac threatens to "send fire unto" Hazael, Gaza, Tyrus, Teman, Rabbah, Moab, and Judah. 1:4, 7, 10, 12, 14; 2:2, 5

  2. God says there are three or four reasons for him to punish Moab. But he only mentions one: "because he burned the bones of the king of Edom." So God burned Moab because they burned some bones. 2:1

  3. God will "slay all the princes" of Moab. 2:3

  4. God destroyed the Amorites who were a race of giants as tall as cedars and as strong as oaks. 2:9

  5. "For thus saith the Lord GOD; The city that went out by a thousand shall leave an hundred, and that which went forth by an hundred shall leave ten." 5:3

  6. "Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it." 5:6

  7. God promises to destroy those who worship other gods. 7:9

  8. God tells Amos that the end has come for the people of Israel. He won't wait any longer to kill them all. 8:2

  9. God will kill so many people that dead bodies will lay everywhere. 8:3-14

  10. God will destroy the "the sinful kingdom" and "all the sinners" among his people. 9:8-10
