Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 9:6

_ _ because of destruction — to escape from the devastation of their country.

_ _ Egypt shall gather them up — that is, into its sepulchres (Jeremiah 8:2; Ezekiel 29:5). Instead of returning to Palestine, they should die in Egypt.

_ _ Memphis — famed as a necropolis.

_ _ the pleasant places for their silver — that is, their desired treasuries for their money. Or, “whatever precious thing they have of silver” [Maurer].

_ _ nettles — the sign of desolation (Isaiah 34:13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 9:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 9:6

They are gone — Some are already withdrawn from the desolation that cometh. Egypt — In Egypt they hope to be quiet and survive these desolations, but they shall die in Egypt. The pleasant places — Their beautiful houses built for keeping their wealth in. Nettles — Shall be ruined, and lie in rubbish, 'till nettles grow in them.
