Hosea 12:13

Context

12:13 The Lord brought Israel out of Egypt by a prophet,

and due to a prophet 1  Israel 2  was preserved alive. 3 

1 tn Heb “by a prophet” (so NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV).

2 tn Heb “he”; the referent (Israel) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Heb “was protected”; NASB “was kept.” The verb שָׁמַר (shamar, “to watch, guard, keep, protect”) is repeated in 12:13-14 HT (12:12-13 ET). This repetition creates parallels between Jacob’s sojourn in Aram and Israel’s sojourn in the wilderness. Jacob “tended = kept” (שָׁמַר) sheep in Aram, and Israel was “preserved = kept” (נִשְׁמָר, nishmar) by Moses in the wilderness.
