Hosea 13:7-8

Context

13:7 So 1  I will pounce on them like a lion; 2 

like a leopard I will lurk by the path.

13:8 I will attack them like a bear robbed of her cubs –

I will rip open their chests.

I will devour them there like a lion –

like a wild animal would tear them apart.

1 tn The vav consecutive + preterite form וָאֱהִי (vaehi) introduces a consequential or result clause; cf. NAB “Therefore”; NCV “That is why.”

2 tn Heb “So I will be like a lion to them” (so NASB); NIV “I will come upon them like a lion.”
