AbstractBuilding on Elliger’s and Mazor’s analyses of the structure of Hos 5:1-2, this study discusses several problematic aspects of Hos 5:1-2, such as the meaning of and in 1a and in 2b. It accepts the emended reading “the pit of Shittim” in verse 2a, but also puts this into perspective. With the benefit of data from the context, it demonstrates that the text makes use of paronomasia, deliberate ambiguities and shifts of meaning as parts of its rhetorical strategy.
