|New International Version (© 2011)|
As marauders lie in ambush for a victim, so do bands of priests; they murder on the road to Shechem, carrying out their wicked schemes.
King James Bible
And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness.
American Standard Version
And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way toward Shechem; yea, they have committed lewdness.
Young's Literal Translation
And as bands do wait for a man, A company of priests do murder -- the way to Shechem, For wickedness they have done.
Hosea 6:9 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
As troops of robbers - What a sad picture is this of the state of the priesthood! The country of Gilead was infamous for its robberies and murders. The idolatrous priests there formed themselves into companies, and kept possession of the roads and passes; and if they found any person going to Jerusalem to worship the true God, they put him to death. The reason is given: -
For they commit lewdness - They are gross idolaters.
