Hosea 12 - AMP

2 The Lord has also a controversy (a pleading contention) with Judah, and will punish Jacob by visiting upon him according to his ways; according to his doings will He recompense him. 3 He took his brother by the heel in womb, and in the strength he contended and had power with God. 4 Yes, he had power over the See footnotes on Gen. 16:7 and Gen. 32:28.Angel and prevailed; he wept and sought His favor. He met Him in Bethel, and there spoke with us-- 5 Even the Lord the God of hosts, the name of Him is the Lord. 6 Therefore return to your God! Hold fast to love and mercy, to righteousness and justice, and wait for your God continually! 7 Canaan is a trader; the balances of deceit are in his hand; he loves to oppress and defraud. 8 Ephraim has said, Ah, but I have become rich; I have gained for myself wealth. All my profits shall bring on me no iniquity that would be sin. 9 But I am the Lord your God from the land of Egypt will yet make you to dwell in tents, as in the days of the appointed and solemn Feast . 10 I have also spoken to the prophets, and I have multiplied visions and through parables acted out by the prophets. 11 If Gilead is given over to idolatry, they shall come to nought and be mere waste; if they sacrificing bullocks in Gilgal , their altars shall be like heaps in the furrows of the fields. 12 Jacob fled into the open country of Aram or Padan-aram, and Israel served for a wife, and for a wife he herded sheep. 13 And by a prophet the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was preserved. 14 Ephraim has provoked most bitter anger; therefore shall his blood be left upon him, and his disgrace and reproach shall his Lord return upon him.

Summary: Before developing the themes of guilt and judgement (12:9-13:16), Hosea reminds Israel of its unfaithfulness (vv.1-2), and of its need to repent (vv. 5-6). In doing so he draws a lesson from the life of Jacob (vv. 3-4). Much like the people of our day the
