MAMAHIT, Ferry Y.  y  VENTER, Pieter M.. Oracle against Israel's social injustices: a rhetorical analysis of Amos 2:6-8. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2010, vol.66, n.1, pp. 1-11. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article applied rhetorical analysis to an analysis of Amos' prophetic oracle against Israel's social injustices in Amos 2:6-8. The prophet uses a major rhetorical genre, namely judicial rhetoric, and several smaller rhetorical devices including the oracle against the nations, geographical chiasmus, numerical formula (the N+1 formula), the sevenfold structure, rhetorical entrapment, repetition, the war oracle, parallel structure and chiasms. These devices are utilised by Amos to make a persuasive appeal to his audience to respond to divine indictment.

Palabras clave : Amos; judicial rhetoric; prophetic oracle; social injustice; rhetorical analysis.
