charuts not a
straightforward word, it also means "gold" and "diligent"
or "sharp". In Is 28:27 (as probably in Is 41:15)
the word clearly refers to "threshing" but whether there and in Am 1:3
it means that or whether it simply refers to a "sharp implement" is
not clear, I have translated with the less precise "implement" as the
cotext makes the reference
clear in any case.
