Bamot is the plural form and bama the singular form. However, the plural form (bamot) is sometimes used in the Bible for a singular referent (see Jeremiah 7:31; 32:35; Micah 1:5); in other words bamot may mean a bama (i.e. singular). This is clearly the case in the second reference to bamot in the verse quoted above. See P. H. Vaughan, The Meaning of ‘Bama’ in the Old Testament, (Cambridge University, 1974), pp. 14; 61, n. 41.
