Hosea 11:1


When Israel was a young man, I loved him like a son, 1  and I summoned my son 2  out of Egypt.


Ex 4:22; De 7:7; Jer 2:2; Eze 16:6; Ho 2:15; Mal 1:2; Mt 2:15

NET © Notes

tn The words “like a son” are not in the Hebrew text, but are necessary to clarify what sort of love is intended (cf. also NLT).

tc The MT reads בְנִי (vÿni, “My son”); however, the LXX reflects בָנָיו (vanav, “his sons”). The MT should be retained as original here because of internal evidence; it is much more appropriate to the context.
