Hosea 4:13

Context

4:13 They sacrifice on the mountaintops,

and burn offerings on the hills;

they sacrifice 1  under oak, poplar, and terebinth,

because their shade is so pleasant.

As a result, your daughters have become cult prostitutes,

and your daughters-in-law commit adultery!

Hosea 14:8

Context

14:8 O Ephraim, I do not want to have anything to do 2  with idols anymore!

I will answer him and care for him.

I am like 3  a luxuriant cypress tree; 4 

your fruitfulness comes from me! 5 

1 tn The phrase “they sacrifice” is not repeated in the Hebrew text here but is implied by parallelism; it is provided in the translation for the sake of clarity.

2 tn The Hebrew expression מַה־לִּי עוֹד (mah-liod) is a formula of repudiation/emphatic denial that God has anything in common with idols: “I want to have nothing to do with […] any more!” Cf., e.g., Judg 11:12; 2 Sam 16:10; 19:23; 1 Kgs 17:18; 2 Kgs 3:13; 2 Chr 35:21; Jer 2:18; Ps 50:16; BDB 553 s.v. מָה 1.d.(c).

3 tn The term “like” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is supplied in the translation for clarity, as in the majority of English versions (including KJV).

4 tn Cf. KJV “a green fir tree”; NIV, NCV “a green pine tree”; NRSV “an evergreen cypress.”

5 tn Heb “your fruit is found in me”; NRSV “your faithfulness comes from me.”
