Hosea 11:10-11

Context
God Will Restore the Exiles to Israel

11:10 He will roar like a lion,

and they will follow the Lord;

when he roars,

his children will come trembling 1  from the west.

11:11 They will return in fear and trembling 2 

like birds from Egypt,

like doves from Assyria,

and I will settle them in their homes,” declares the Lord.

1 tn When the verb חָרַד (kharad, “to tremble”) is used with prepositions of direction, it denotes “to go or come trembling” (BDB 353 s.v. חָרַד 4; e.g., Gen 42:28; 1 Sam 13:7; 16:4; 21:2; Hos 11:10, 11). Thus, the phrase מִיָּםוְיֶחֶרְדוּ (vÿyekherdumiyyam) means “to come trembling from the west.” Cf. NAB “shall come frightened from the west.”

2 tn For the meaning of חָרַד (harad, “to tremble”) with prepositions of direction, see 11:10 above.
