A recent proposal concerning the meaning of Hosea ii 11 (MT) argues that both modern and ancient interpreters have misread the meaning of the verse by associating the root ksh with the verse's infinitive, and that the root kss provides a better meaning in the context. Reading kss allows for an interpretation within the legal language of the ancient Near East. This short note argues that the proposal to read kss ignores some important considerations for reading Hosea ii, and that there are still compelling reasons for interpreters to see a naked woman in Hosea ii 11.
