Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 12:5

_ _ Lord God — Jehovah, a name implying His immutable constancy to His promises. From the Hebrew root, meaning “existence.” “He that is, was, and is to be,” always the same (Hebrews 13:8; Revelation 1:4, Revelation 1:8; compare Exodus 3:14, Exodus 3:15; Exodus 6:3). As He was unchangeable in His favor to Jacob, so will He be to His believing posterity.

_ _ of hosts — which Israel foolishly worshipped. Jehovah has all the hosts (saba) or powers of heaven and earth at His command, so that He is as all-powerful, as He is faithful, to fulfil His promises (Psalms 135:6; Amos 5:27).

_ _ memorial — the name expressive of the character in which God was ever to be remembered (Psalms 135:13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 12:5

The Lord God of hosts — He that appeared and spake, who promised the blessing and commanded the reformation at Beth — el was Jehovah, the eternal and unchangeable God; who can perform his promise, and execute his threat, who is a most terrible enemy, and most desirable friend. The Lord — Jehovah, repeated for confirmation. His memorial — By this he will be known.
