SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:2 La era y el lagar no los mantendrán; y el mosto les mentirá.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 2. The floor and the winepress shall not feed them , etc.] Though their expectations from their worship of idols were large, they should find themselves mistaken; for there would not be a sufficiency of corn on the floor, nor of wine in the press, to supply them with what was necessary for their sustenance; either through a blight upon their fields and vineyards, or through the invasion of an enemy, treading them down, and spoiling and foraging them: or else supposing a sufficient quantity of corn and wine got in; yet those blessings should be either turned into curses, or carried off by the enemy, that they should do then, no good; or if they enjoyed them, yet they should receive no nourishment from them; but should become lean, and look like starved and famishing creatures in the midst of plenty; by all which it would appear that their idols could neither give them a sufficiency of provisions, nor make those nourishing to them they had: and the new wine shall fail in her ; in the congregation or land of Israel: or, “shall lie to her” f165 ; shall not answer their expectations, but disappoint and deceive them; whereas they expected great plenty from the promising prospect of the vines, these by one means or another should be destroyed, so that they would yield but little, and balk them; (see Habakkuk 3:17 Haggai 1:6,10,11 2:16).
Matthew Henry Commentary Destruction threatened for the impiety of Israel. (Hos. 8:1-4) For their idolatry. (Hos. 8:5-10) Further threatenings for the same sins (Hos. 8:11-14)
Hos. 8:1-4 When Israel was hard pressed, they would claim protectio from God, but this would be disregarded. What stead will it stand in to say, My God, I know thee, if we cannot say, My God, I love thee, serv thee, and cleave to thee only?
Hos. 8:5-10 They promised themselves plenty, peace, and victory, by worshipping idols, but their expectations came to nothing. What the sow has no stalk, no blade, or, if it have, the bud shall yield n fruit, there was nothing in them. The works of darkness are unfruitful nay, the end of those things is death. The hopes of sinners wil deceive them, and their gains will be snares. In times of danger especially in the day of judgment, all carnal devices will fail. The take a course by themselves, and like a wild ass by himself, they wil be the easier and surer prey for the lion. Man is in nothing more lik the wild ass's colt, than in seeking for that succour and tha satisfaction in the creature, which are to be had in God only. Thoug men may sorrow a little, yet if it is not after a godly sort, they wil be brought to sorrow everlastingly.
Hos. 8:11-14 It is a great sin to corrupt the worship of God, and wil be charged as sin on all who do it, how plausible soever their excuse may seem to be. The Lord had caused his law to be written for them, but they cared not to know, and would not obey it. Man seems by the temple he builds to be mindful of his Maker, yet really he has forgotten him because he has cast off all his fear; but none ever hardened his hear against God and prospered. So long as men despise the truths an precepts of God's word, and the ordinances of his worship, all the observances and offerings, however costly, of their own devising, wil be unto them for sin; for those services only are acceptable to God which are done according to his word, and through Jesus Christ __________________________________________________________________
