Hosea 11 Commentary

Please choose a passage

Hosea 11:1-7 meaning

The LORD announces that since Israel has refused His prophetic warning and will not repent, in spite of all the care and blessing God has provided them, Assyria will now conquer them. Assyria will be Israel’s new king.

Hosea 11:8-12 meaning

Even though Israel will be judged and exiled to Assyria, the LORD's compassion will cause Him to temper His judgment; this exile will be temporary. God will retain a remnant. He will not abandon or destroy His people utterly because He keeps His promises, and has promised to restore Israel if they break the covenant and are exiled. In due time, God will end their exile and resettle them in the Promised Land.
