    Clarke's Commentary on Amos 8:2

    A basket of summer fruit - כלוב קיץ kelub kayits, the end is come - בא הקץ ba hakkets: here is a paronomasia or play upon the words kayits, summer fruit, and kets, the end, both coming from similar roots. See the note on Ezekiel 7:2 (note), where there is a similar play on the same word.

    I will not again pass by them any more - I will be no longer their Guardian.
