Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 11:3

_ _ taught ... to go — literally, “to use his feet.” Compare a similar image, Deuteronomy 1:31; Deuteronomy 8:2, Deuteronomy 8:5, Deuteronomy 8:15; Deuteronomy 32:10, Deuteronomy 32:11; Nehemiah 9:21; Isaiah 63:9; Amos 2:10. God bore them as a parent does an infant, unable to supply itself, so that it has no anxiety about food, raiment, and its going forth. Acts 13:18, which probably refers to this passage of Hosea; He took them by the arms, to guide them that they might not stray, and to hold them up that they might not stumble.

_ _ knew not that I healed them — that is, that My design was to restore them spiritually and temporally (Exodus 15:26).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 11:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 11:3

I taught — As a mother or nurse helps the child. Taking them — Supporting and bearing them up. They knew not — They would not see nor acknowledge me in it.
