Hosea 5:10

_ _ remove the bound — (Deuteronomy 19:14; Deuteronomy 27:17; Job 24:2; Proverbs 22:28; Proverbs 23:10). Proverbial for the rash setting aside of the ancestral laws by which men are kept to their duty. Ahaz and his courtiers (“the princes of Judah”), setting aside the ancient ordinances of God, removed the borders of the bases and the layer and the sea and introduced an idolatrous altar from Damascus (2 Kings 16:10-18); also he burnt his children in the valley of Hinnom, after the abominations of the heathen (2 Chronicles 28:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
