Hosea 2:2 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
In Daniel 7:26 and Daniel 7:27 this judgment is described (cf. Daniel 7:10), but only as to its consequences for the world-power. The dominion of the horn in which the power of the fourth beast culminates is taken away and altogether annihilated. The destruction of the beast is here passed by, inasmuch as it is already mentioned in Daniel 7:11; while, on the other hand, that which is said (Daniel 7:12) about the taking away of its power and its dominion is strengthened by the inf. להשׁמדה (to destroy), וּלהובדה (and to consume), being added to יהעדּוּן (they shall take away), to which שׁלטנהּ (his dominion) is to be repeated as the object. סופא עד, to the end, i.e., not absolutely, but, as in Daniel 6:27, to the end of the days, i.e., for ever.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Thus says the LORD: "Where is your mother's certificate of divorce, with which I sent her away? Or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities you were sold, and for your transgressions your mother was sent away.
"If a man divorces his wife and she goes from him and becomes another man's wife, will he return to her? Would not that land be greatly polluted? You have played the whore with many lovers; and would you return to me? declares the LORD.
Because she took her whoredom lightly, she polluted the land, committing adultery with stone and tree.
But righteous men shall pass judgment on them with the sentence of adulteresses, and with the sentence of women who shed blood, because they are adulteresses, and blood is on their hands."
Say to your brothers, "You are my people," and to your sisters, "You have received mercy."
For their mother has played the whore; she who conceived them has acted shamefully. For she said, 'I will go after my lovers, who give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.'
You shall stumble by day; the prophet also shall stumble with you by night; and I will destroy your mother.
