Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 1:10

_ _ Literally fulfilled in part at the return from Babylon, in which many Israelites joined with Judah. Spiritually, the believing seed of Jacob or Israel, Gentiles as well as Jews, numerous “as the sand” (Genesis 32:12); the Gentiles, once not God’s people, becoming His “sons” (John 1:12; Romans 9:25, Romans 9:26; 1 Peter 2:10; 1 John 3:1). To be fulfilled in its literal fullness hereafter in Israel’s restoration (Romans 11:26).

_ _ the living God — opposed to their dead idols.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 1:8-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 1:10

The children of Israel — Not Israel after the flesh, not those very families that are carried captive. In the place — In those places, were a people dwelt who were not his people, there shall be a people of God. The living God — Who is the fountain of life to all his children, and who enables them to offer living sacrifices to the living God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hosea 1:10

Yet the number of the (m) children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, [that] in the place where it was said unto them, Ye [are] not my people, [there] it shall be said unto them, [Ye are] the sons of the living God.

(m) Because they thought that God could not have been true in his promise unless he had preserved them, he declares that though they were destroyed, yet the true Israelites who are the sons of the promise, would be without number, who consist both of the Jews and the Gentiles; (Romans 9:26).
