Isaiah 9

Section 2c: After the darkness there is light and the promise of a ‘child born’ and ‘son given’ who shall victoriously establish His kingdom. Then contrasted with the glorious person of the Messiah is a fourfold judgement upon Israel and their leaders.

Amos 6

The LORD speaks against the ruling elite who, while enjoying prosperity and ease themselves, display injustice towards the afflicted remnant. Because of this they will be the first to be taken into captivity. In this we see the righteous justice of the LORD at work.
