Hosea 5:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 5

Guilt of the Religious and Political Leaders

Hear this, priests,
    Pay attention, house of Israel,
Household of the king, give ear!
    For you are responsible for judgment.[a]
But you have been a snare at Mizpah,[b]
    a net spread upon Tabor,
a pit dug deep in Shittim.
    Now I will discipline them all.

Footnotes:

  1. 5:1 For you…judgment: possibly “for you are called to judgment.”
  2. 5:1–2 Mizpah: several places bear this name; the best known is in Benjamin (1 Sm 7:6, 16; 10:17). Perhaps this is a wordplay on mishpat, “justice,” “judgment.” Tabor: the mountain that dominates the valley of Jezreel. Shittim: in Transjordan, where Israel committed its first act of idolatry with the Baal of Peor (9:10; cf. Nm 25). At these three places the leaders had misled the people by an idolatrous cult or by an abuse of justice.
