Amos 9:11-12 will be our next passage. I am only giving you the reference here because I want you to read it and answer in your own mind the following questions after you do so. As an Israelite contemporary to the time of Amos, when you read Amos 9:11-12 …
1. What would you assume the “booth” or “tabernacle” of David is, referred to in v. 11?
2. What would it mean to you that this “booth” or “tabernacle” is “fallen” and in need of repair?
3. What would you presume would be meant by the “rebuilding” of this “booth” or “tabernacle”?
4. Who do you suppose would be “the remnant of Edom”?
I’ll give you all a couple days before posting on this again.
