    Hosea 1-3

    • 816 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Hosea is often cited as the source of the Old Testament marriage metaphor, but Hosea’s use of the metaphor is notoriously subtle and difficult to explicate. Though Hosea, especially in Hosea 1-3, makes extensive use of the metaphoric vehicle of “marriage,” the metaphor’s tenor is virtually impossible to follow. The metaphoric vehicle (adultery) is consistent, but the tenor is extraordinarily fluid, consistent only as a general accusation of infidelity, and apparently mutable in it referent. The…

    6. Exegetical Analysis of the Text Hosea 6:1 “Come, let us return to Yahweh; for he has torn, but he will heal us; he struck, but he will bind us.” Both verbs לְכוּ (הָלַךְ) “come” and נָשׁוּבָה (שׁוּב) “return” have full force in and their repetition (Hosea 5:15; 6:1) puts Yahweh’s action and the people’s action in counterpoise. The omission of the conjunction brings יַךְ (נָכָה) “smite” into tandem with טָרָף (טָרַף) “tear.” The two verbs וְיִרְפָּאֵנוּ (רָפָא) “heal” and וְיַחְבְּשֵֽׁנוּ…
