Amos 2:14

14 The swift will not escape, the strong will not muster their strength, and the warrior will not save his life.

Read Amos 2:14 Using Other Translations

Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shall the mighty deliver himself:
Flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not retain his strength, nor shall the mighty save his life;
Your fastest runners will not get away. The strongest among you will become weak. Even mighty warriors will be unable to save themselves.

What does Amos 2:14 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Amos 2:14

Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift
They should be so straitened and cooped up, and be so loaded with pressures, that those, as swift of foot as Asahel, should not be able to make their escape by fleeing: and the strong shall not strengthen his force;
should not increase it, or muster it up, and exert it to such a degree, as to be able to defend and secure himself from the enemy: neither shall the mighty deliver himself;
"his soul" or "life"; a soldier, a man of war, an expert and courageous officer at the head of his troop, or even the general of the army; see ( Psalms 33:16 ) .
