Example text

Again, however, the lack of specificity is important. The crime of Tyre is not that they acted against Israel, but that they kidnapped people for slavery and violated treaties in order to do so. “Brothers” (‫ ) ַא ִחים‬is in the ancient Near East a technical term for treaty partners (see 1 Kgs 9:13). See Priest (1965). 1:10: Second Stanza. Two lines. Both are headed by weqatal verbs, indicating that this strophe is the apodosis. As described above, these two lines constitute the minimal configuration for a judgment stanza in the first seven poems.

Line Bf: The colon-marker is tifha. The constraints are: 1 predicator, 3 constituents, and 4 units. If ‫ ָא ַמר יְהוָ ה‬were treated as part of this line, there would be too many constituents and units. Several times in Amos a tifha will mark a line break before a divine speech formula. ‫וְ גָ ל֧ ּו‬. Qal weqatal 3 c p of ‫גלה‬. This is the last in a series of five mainline predictions marked by the weqatal. ‫ם־א ָ ֛רם‬ ֲ ‫ ַע‬. A construct chain serving as the subject. Amos foresees a mass deportation of the Aramean people.

Line Bb: The colon-marker is silluq and the constraints are: 1 predicator, 2 constituents, and 3 units. ‫וְ ָא ְכ ָל֖ה‬. Qal weqatal 3 f s of ‫אכל‬. The subject is the fire of line a. indd 26 6/6/08 2:24:29 PM Amos 1:4-5 27 ‫ן־ה ָ ֽדד‬ ֲ ‫ ַא ְר ְמנ֥ ֹות ֶּב‬. The direct object, a construct chain. The destruction of the “citadels” of a city in Amos is formulaic for the destruction of that city and for the end of that state. The word ‫ַא ְרמֹון‬ may mean “palace,” but it is also construed as fortified, suggesting that an English term such as “citadel” is appropriate.
