יסף ysp verb (from which name Joseph comes) "repeat or do again". In Amos twice in the visions where God declares that he will "never again" spare Israel (7:8; 8:2), between these (ironically?) when Amaziah tells Amos "never again" to prophesy against Israel (7:13) in these cases the finality of what is said is stressed by the addition of עוֹד.

The verb also occurs in 5:2 where the lament for Maid Israel declares she will "never rise again".
