Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 5:2

_ _ revolters — apostates.

_ _ profounddeeply rooted [Calvin] and sunk to the lowest depths, excessive in their idolatry (Hosea 9:9; Isaiah 31:6) [Henderson]. From the antithesis (Hosea 5:3), “not hid from me,” I prefer explaining, profoundly cunning in their idolatry. Jeroboam thought it a profound piece of policy to set up golden calves to represent God in Dan and Beth-el, in order to prevent Israel’s heart from turning again to David’s line by going up to Jerusalem to worship. So Israel’s subsequent idolatry was grounded by their leaders on various pleas of state expediency (compare Isaiah 29:15).

_ _ to ... slaughter — He does not say “to sacrifice,” for their so-called sacrifices were butcheries rather than sacrifices; there was nothing sacred about them, being to idols instead of to the holy God.

_ _ though — Maurer translates, “and (in spite of their hope of safety through their slaughter of victims to idols) I will be a chastisement to them all.” English Version is good sense: They have deeply revolted, notwithstanding all my prophetical warnings.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 5:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 5:2

The revolters — All those that have cast off the law of God. Profound — Dig deep to hide their counsels, and to slay the innocent. Though I — Hosea.
