I have seen an horrible thing in the house of Israel
Idolatry, the calves set up at Dan and Bethel, which God saw with abhorrence and detestation; or the prophet saw it, and it made his hair stand on end as it were, as the word F7 signifies, that such wickedness should be committed by a professing people: there [is] the whoredom of Ephraim;
in the house of Israel is the whoredom of Jeroboam, who was of the tribe of Ephraim, and caused Israel to sin, to go a whoring after idols; or the whoredom of the tribe of Ephraim, which belonged to the house of Israel, and even of all the ten tribes; both corporeal and spiritual whoredom, or idolatry, are here meant: Israel is defiled;
with whoredom of both kinds; it had spread itself all over the ten tribes; they were all infected with it, and polluted by it; see ( Hosea 5:3 ) .
