Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,
says Yahweh of Hosts. Zechariah 4:6
Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors,
That the King of Glory may come in! Who is this King of Glory?
Yahweh of Hosts: He is the King of Glory. Psalm 24:9-10
Amos has a message of judgment not only for Israel, but for seven other nations as well. One was Judah (2:4). Give three others.

Judgment is to fall upon Israel for their wickedness, and they will be taken away as captives to a foreign land. However, Amos predicts that the day will come when God shall "raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down," and God will "bring back the captives of My people Israel." When that occurs, Amos gives three activities that will take place. The first is, they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them. Can you give one of the other two?
