Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 3:5

_ _ Afterward — after the long period (“many days,” Hosea 3:4) has elapsed.

_ _ return — from their idols to “their God,” from whom they had wandered.

_ _ David their king — Israel had forsaken the worship of Jehovah at the same time that they forsook their allegiance to David’s line. Their repentance towards God is therefore to be accompanied by their return to the latter. So Judah and Israel shall be one, and under “one head,” as is also foretold (Hosea 1:11). That representative and antitype of David is Messiah. “David” means “the beloved.” Compare as to Messiah, Matthew 3:17; Ephesians 1:6. Messiah is called David (Isaiah 55:3, Isaiah 55:4; Jeremiah 30:9; Ezekiel 34:23, Ezekiel 34:24; Ezekiel 37:24, Ezekiel 37:25).

_ _ fear the Lord and his goodness — that is, tremblingly flee to the Lord, to escape from the wrath to come; and to His goodness,” as manifested in Messiah, which attracts them to Him (Jeremiah 31:12). The “fear” is not that which “hath torment” (1 John 4:18), but reverence inspired by His goodness realized in the soul (Psalms 130:4).

_ _ the latter days — those of Messiah [Kimichi].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 3:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 3:5

Return — Repent. And David — The Messiah who is the son of David. And his goodness — God and his goodness; that is, the good and gracious God. God in Christ and with Christ shall be worshipped. The latter days — In the days of the Messiah, in gospel — times.
