Abstract

MEANING AND STRUCTURE OF HOSEA X 1 - 8 by CORNELIS VAN LEEUWEN Ermelo, The Netherlands The pericope Hos. x 1-8 is to be set apart from the preceding and following ones. Here the prophet is speaking about God and Israel in 3rd person, while in the passages ix 10-17 and x 9-11 God is pre- sented speaking with his divine “I” about, or to, Israel. Notably, the prophet raises a discussion here on the same matters as he does elsewhere, for example in chapter viii: the many altars (viii 11-13), Israel’s kings and its idolatry with the calf of Samaria (viii 4-6), and its undergoing the Lord’s judgment as executed by Assyria (viii 8-9, 13b). Deden is probably right when he remarks: “The frequent occurrence of similar themes in changing tones indicates that Hosea spoke or wrote down his prophecies on di V erent occasions and [in di V erent] places”. 1 As for the place of this prophecy, we may think of either the cap- ital Samaria or the sanctuary of Bethel. The occasion is less easy to determine. The heavy tribute that Israel (vv. 5-6) had to pay to Assyria— either the gold cover of
