Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 10:3

_ _ now, etc. — Soon they, deprived of their king, shall be reduced to say, We have no king (Hosea 10:7, Hosea 10:15), for Jehovah deprived us of him, because of our not fearing God. What then (seeing God is against us) should a king be able to do for us, if we had one? As they rejected the heavenly King, they were deprived of their earthly king.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 10:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 10:3

Say — See and feel. No king — Either no king at all, or no such king as we expected. What then — For kings are not able to save without the God of kings.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hosea 10:3

For now they shall say, We have no (d) king, because we feared not the LORD; what then should a king do to us?

(d) The day will come that God will take away their king, and then they will feel the fruit of their sins, and how they trusted in him in vain; (2 Kings 17:6-7).
