The prophet Amos lived before Jeremiah and before the destruction of the temple. He was a shepherd who became a prophet of the LORD.
Amos 2:7 They trample the heads of the weak into the dust of the earth, and force the lowly out of the way. Son and father go to the same prostitute, profaning My holy Name.

Amos 4: 13 Who made the dawn and the darkness, and strides upon the heights of the earth: the LORD, the God of hosts by Name.
Amos 5: 9, 27 Who flashes destruction upon the strong, and brings ruin upon the fortress; whose Name is LORD.
verse 27 For I will exile you beyond Damascus, say I, the LORD, the God of hosts by Name.
Amos 6: 1, 4-7, 10
Woe to the complacent in Zion, to the overconfident on the mount of Samaria, leaders of a nation favored from the first, to whom the people of Israel have recourse!
verses 4-7 Lying upon beds of ivory, stretched comfortably on their couches, they eat lambs taken from the flock, and calves from the stall! Improvising to the music of the harp, like David, they devise their own accompaniment. They drink wine from bowls and anoint themselves with the best oils; yet they are not made ill by the collapse of Joseph! Therefore, now they shall be the first to go into exile, and their wanton revelry shall be done away with.
verse 10 Only a few shall be left to carry the dead out of the houses; If one says to a man inside a house, “Is anyone with you?” and he answers, “No one,” then he shall say, “Silence!” for no one must mention the Name of the LORD.
Amos 9:6, 11-12  (The LORD is speaking in these passages.)
verse 6 I have built heaven, My upper chamber, and established My vault over the earth; I summon the waters of the sea and pour them out upon the surface of the earth, I, the LORD by Name.
verses 11-12 On that day I will raise up the fallen hut of David; I will wall up its breaches, raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old, That they may conquer what is left of Edom and all the nations that shall bear My Name, say I, the LORD, who will do this.

Following Amos, the books of Obadiah and Jonah contain no references to the Name of the LORD.
