- הַר har
"hill, mountain" the common word:
- name of particular "Mounts" (Amos 4:1 & 6:1 - Mount Samaria - in the later case paralleled with "Zion"
- hills in general (4:13
- at 3:9 we find "hills
of Samaria", some commentators see this as problematic, since elsewhere
Amos uses the singular "Mount Samaria" (as the LXX does here) perhaps however the focus is different,
all of the hill country of Ephraim not merely the capital city.
