In the way they had behaved, these nations had sinned against conscience (Rom. 2:1–16) and against human decency. The prophet Amos was preaching the same message in the northern kingdom, but he denounced the Gentiles first and then warned the Jews (Amos 1—2). As you study the book of Isaiah, you will discover that the prophet interspersed messages of hope with words of judgment.
