Samaria's king will be destroyed, swept away like a twig on the surface of the waters.
King James Bible
As for Samaria, her king is cut off as the foam upon the water.
American Standard Version
As for'samaria, her king is cut off, as foam upon the water.
Young's Literal Translation
Cut off is Samaria! Its king is as a chip on the face of the waters.
Hosea 10:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Her king is cut off as the foam - As lightly as a puff of wind blows off the foam that is formed below by a fall of water, so shall the kings of Israel be cut off. We have already seen that not less than four of them died by assassination in a very short time. See on Hosea 7:7 (note).
