Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 13:15

_ _ fruitful — referring to the meaning of “Ephraim,” from a Hebrew root, “to be fruitful” (Genesis 41:52). It was long the most numerous and flourishing of the tribes (Genesis 48:19).

_ _ wind of the Lord — that is, sent by the Lord (compare Isaiah 40:7), who has His instruments of punishment always ready. The Assyrian, Shalmaneser, etc., is meant (Jeremiah 4:11; Jeremiah 18:17; Ezekiel 19:12).

_ _ from the wilderness — that is, the desert part of Syria (1 Kings 19:15), the route from Assyria into Israel.

_ _ he — the Assyrian invader. Shalmaneser began the siege of Samaria in 723 b.c. Its close was in 721 b.c., the first year of Sargon, who seems to have usurped the throne of Assyria while Shalmaneser was at the siege of Samaria. Hence, while 2 Kings 17:6 states, “the king of Assyria took Samaria,” 2 Kings 18:10 says, “at the end of three years they took it.” In Sargon’s magnificent palace at Khorsabad, inscriptions mention the number — 27,280 — of Israelites carried captive from Samaria and other places of Israel by the founder of the palace [G. V. Smith].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hosea 13:9-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 13:15

He — Ephraim. His brethren — Either the rest of the tribes, or the nations who by league are become as his brethren. An east — wind — An enemy as pernicious to his estate as the east — wind is to fruits. Of the Lord — A mighty enemy, called here the wind of the Lord, the usual superlative in Hebrew. The wilderness — Which lay south — east from Canaan. The south — east winds in that country were of all, most hot and blasting. He — The Assyrian army. Shall spoil — Shall carry away all desirable vessels and furniture.
