Hosea 2:17


For 1  I will remove the names of the Baal idols 2  from your lips, 3  so that you will never again utter their names!” 4 


Ex 23:13; Jos 23:7; Ps 16:4; Jer 10:11; Zec 13:2

NET © Notes

tn The vav consecutive prefixed to וַהֲסִרֹתִי (vahasiroti) “I will remove” (vav consecutive + Hiphil perfect 1st person common singular) introduces an explanatory clause.

tn Heb “the Baals.” The singular term בַּעַל (baal) refers to the Canaanite god Baal himself, while the plural form הַבְּעָלִים (habbéalim) refers to the manifestations of the god (i.e., idols; BDB 127 s.v. בָּעַל II.1).

tn Heb “from her mouth.” In the translation this is rendered as second person for consistency.

tn Heb “they will no longer be mentioned by their name.”
