Amos 1:9 (KJV) To Forsake a Friendship

Amos 1:9 (KJV)
Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant:
It seems relatively certain that the covenant spoken of is that between Hiram and David, then Solomon.
1 Kings 5:1 (KJV)
And Hiram king of Tyre sent his servants unto Solomon; for he had heard that they had anointed him king in the room of his father: for Hiram was ever a lover of David.
Friendships, though often fickle, are more necessary than we might think. They are indeed a bond that only those without natural affection dare to break. They are not merely casual, they are covenants.
To have a friend, to experience “the brotherly covenant,” is a privilege that is nearly criminal to forsake.
