Hosea 1:5

_ _ bow — the prowess (Jeremiah 49:35; compare Genesis 49:24).

_ _ valley of Jezreel — afterwards called Esdraelon, extending ten miles in breadth, and in length from Jordan to the Mediterranean near Mount Carmel, the great battlefield of Palestine (Judges 6:33; 1 Samuel 29:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 1:2-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 1:5

At that day — When my vengeance hath overtaken the house of Jehu. Break — Weaken and by degrees quite break. The bow — All their warlike provision, power and skill. Jezreel — In this valley it is probable the bloodiest battles in the civil wars were fought; the reason whereof might be, because whoever carried the victory in this place, were soon masters of Samaria and Jezreel, and consequently of the kingdom.
