“……3 and we will say no more, ‘Our God,’
to the work of our hands.” Hosea is pleading With the people to stop putting praise towards things that we build with our own hands …..which is something that is still going on to this day.
Excess, hyper cars, Massive super homes, Football field size yachts. These are all things that people praise and put on a pedestal and put before our God.
When we put something before our Lord we are turning our back on Him, in other words we’re making ourselves orphans but He is the Father to all the orphans. 3…..In you the orphan finds mercy.”
Of course I have to comment on the fact that verse 6, 7 and 8 all and with the word Lebanon. And I did a little research just to learn the reference to the deep roots we get from developing relation with our Lord… The trees in Lebanon were planted by God himself Deut 3:25
The fragrance of Lebonon referred to the trees as well Cedars are very fragrant and so is hyssop which came from there and finally the wine from Lebonon was supossed to be some of the finest.
