Commentary by Dr. Drake Travis
Lord, we find ourselves in a world today that is increasingly ungodly; ungodly just like the people we hear people Hosea addressing. Teach us how to reach out to a population that is encouraged to go bad. Let us be Light in the darkness and live effectively to see people come to you. Amen.
5 – The people of Israel; the northern kingdom are intent on doing wrong all of them top to bottom Priests, the king, the population and I mean ALL the people are in sin. The leaders are particularly culpable for leading the nation into idolatrous rebellion and God is going to punish the whole lot of them. They’re so ill-bent on doing wrong God talks that He doesn’t even want them to come and worship in the state they are in. They are in such a bad way they are unable to repent. This is bad; really bad. God has had enough of these people. God is also disturbed how Israel and Judah have turned on one another. God is about to abandon them and let them suffer for awhile. Maybe they will “listen” to the suffering and repent ….?
