Amos 9:8 and 1 Kings 13:34: allusion and dating

The direction in which one sees this connection opperate implies the relative dating of the two passages. 1 Kings 13:34 is unlikely to have reached this form before the fall of Samaria. If the allusion is by Amos to Kings, as seems most likely, then this verse is by a later disciple of the prophet.
