"destroy, exterminate" In Amos at 2:9 and 9:8
in balancing forms:
- at 2:9
perfect 1cs and a hiphil vav-converted 1cs both imperfect indicating
past action "I destroyed"
- at 9:8
hiphil perfect 1cs indicating future action "I will destroy".
In the past Adonai destroyed Israel's enemies, in the future
Israel will be destroyed.
