Outline.

From Jerusalem, YHWH judges surrounding nations, Judah, and Israel for ‘transgressions’; Israel's crimes include oppressing the poor, perverting justice, and resisting prophets ( 1:1–2:16 ). Mistaken religious attitudes are exposed ( 3:1–4:13 ). Israel's only hope lies in ‘seeking’ YHWH through justice and compassion ( 5:1–27 ). Mistaken confidence is exposed ( 6:1–14 ). Visions, threats, and narrative reinforce YHWH's judgement; eventually restoration is promised ( 7:1–9:15 ).
