Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 10:7

_ _ (Hosea 10:3, Hosea 10:15).

_ _ foam — denoting short-lived existence and speedy dissolution. As the foam, though seeming to be eminent raised on the top of the water, yet has no solidity, such is the throne of Samaria. Maurer translates, “a chip” or broken branch that cannot resist the current.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 10:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 10:7
