Hosea 5:8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Political Upheavals[a]

Blow the ram’s horn in Gibeah,
    the trumpet in Ramah!
Sound the alarm in Beth-aven:
    “Look behind you, Benjamin!”[b]

Footnotes:

  1. 5:8–14 This passage describes political and military conflict between Judah and Israel. Perhaps some allusion is made to the Syro-Ephraimite war of 735–734 B.C., when a coalition of Arameans and Israelites attempted to dethrone the king of Judah (2 Kgs 16:5; Is 7:1–9). Judah repulsed the attempt with the aid of Assyria, and the latter devastated both Aram and Israel.
  2. 5:8 A vision of invasion, from Gibeah and Ramah in northern Judah, into Israel.
