Young's Literal Translation

Hosea 11:8 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
How shall I give thee up - See the notes on Hosea 6:4, where we have similar words from similar feeling.

The whole land will be a burning waste of salt and sulfur--nothing planted, nothing sprouting, no vegetation growing on it. It will be like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboyim, which the LORD overthrew in fierce anger.
1 Kings 3:26
The woman whose son was alive was deeply moved out of love for her son and said to the king, "Please, my lord, give her the living baby! Don't kill him!" But the other said, "Neither I nor you shall have him. Cut him in two!"
My heart laments for Moab like a harp, my inmost being for Kir Hareseth.
Look down from heaven and see, from your lofty throne, holy and glorious. Where are your zeal and your might? Your tenderness and compassion are withheld from us.
Therefore this is what the LORD Almighty says: "See, I will refine and test them, for what else can I do because of the sin of my people?
