What is the meaning of Amos 6:5?

Amos 6:4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;

Amos 6:5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of music, like David;

Amos 6:6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.

The verse by verse study of Chapter 6 of Amos was taken from the literal natural fulfillment. We have answered this question taking it from a spiritual perspective.

Verse 4: Beds of Ivory–Today many churches are very wealthy and promote getting rich and giving more to the church–the more you give, the richer you get.

Eating lambs and calves—corrupting of those who start out as true believers  in the true Gospel message and turning them into apostates like themselves.

Verse 5: Christendom invents its own music–they sing another song (not the song of Moses and the Lamb), but of riches and compromise.

Verse 6: Dink wine–They make themselves drunk with the wine of fornication (Rev. 17:2; 18:3). They afflict Joseph (the true believers) because they speak out against their apostasy.
