Hosea 4:15 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

In this verse the Kethiv דּבריו, in harmony with the ancient versions, is to be maintained, and the Keri only as an explanation inferred from the thought of a definite curse. "Our judges" is an expression comprehending the chiefs of the people, kings and princes, as in Psalm 20:10; Psalm 148:11.
