Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 12:4

_ _ the angel — the uncreated Angel of the Covenant, as God the Son appears in the Old Testament (Malachi 3:1).

_ _ made supplicationGenesis 32:26 : “I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.”

_ _ he found him — The angel found Jacob, when he was fleeing from Esau into Syria: the Lord appearing to him “in Beth-el” (Genesis 28:11-19; Genesis 35:1). What a sad contrast, that in this same Beth-el now Israel worships the golden calves!

_ _ there he spake with us — “with us,” as being in the loins of our progenitor Jacob (compare Psalms 66:6, “They ... we;Hebrews 7:9, Hebrews 7:10). What God there spoke to Jacob appertains to us. God’s promises to him belong to all his posterity who follow in the steps of his prayerful faith.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 12:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 12:4

The angel — Called Hosea 12:3, God; and Hosea 12:5, Jehovah, Lord of hosts. He was no created angel, but the Messiah; eternal God by nature and essence, angel by office, and voluntary undertaking. He wept — He prayed with tears from a sense of his own unworthiness, and with earnestness for the mercy he desired. He — God. Him — Jacob full of weariness, fears, and solicitude on his journey to Laban. He — God. With us — Being then in Jacob's loins.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hosea 12:4

Yea, he had (e) power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: (f) he found him [in] Bethel, and there he spake with us;

(e) Read (Genesis 32:24-32).

(f) God found Jacob as he lay sleeping in Bethel (Genesis 28:12), and spoke with him there in such a way that the fruit of that speech appertained to the whole body of the people, of which we are.
