In the present composition of the Book of Amos, a striking relationship can be found between the hymns (Am. iv 13; v 8; ix 5-6) and three of the five vision-reports (vii 1-3, 4-6; ix 1-4). Thus, at least the second part of the Book is presented as a 'progress of doom', in which the prophet is more and more absorbed in the execution of YHWH's judgment, personally and qua communicative strategy. The second pair of vision-reports (vii 7-9; viii 1-3) serve in the current shape of the Book as a framework for the so-called biographical section Am. vii 10-17. This composition is aimed at a reading audience that is exhorted to learn from the bad example of Amaziah and to believe the divine origin of Amos' words.
