Hosea 1:11

Context
1:11 Then the people 1  of Judah and the people of Israel will be gathered together. They will appoint for themselves one leader, 2  and will flourish in the land. 3  Certainly, 4  the day of Jezreel will be great!

1 tn Heb “sons” (twice in this verse, so NASB); KJV, ASV “children”; NIV, NRSV, TEV “people.”

2 tn Heb “head” (so KJV, NAB, NRSV).

3 tn Alternatively, “gain possession of the land” (cf. NRSV) or “rise up from the land” (cf. NIV). This clause may be understood in two ways: (1) Israel will gain ascendancy over the land or conquer the land (e.g., Exod 1:10; cf. NAB “come up from other lands”) or (2) Israel will be “planted” in the land (Hos 2:24-25; cf. NLT “will…plant his people”).

4 tn Or “For” (so NASB); NCV “because”; TEV “Yes.”
