In this article the view is defended that Am. 5:13 together with Am. 5:12 form a unit, with Am. 5:13 functioning as the conclusion of Am. 5:12. So the maśkīl can be seen as a victim of the injustice of Amos’ days, just as the maśkīl was a victim in the days of Antiochus IV Epifanes as witnessed in Dan. 11:33.35. The verse Am. 5:13 is held to be an authentic part of the message of the prophet Amos.
