זנה znh "whore, commit adultery" a word that Amos' colleague (and contemporary?), Hosea, uses a dozen times mainly in the first four chapters as a metaphor for Israel's unfaithfulness to Adonai, Amos uses only once in its most literal sense. At 7:17 Amaziah is told that as part of the punishment that will fall his own wife will be reduced to prostitution.
