Israel was stubborn (Hos 4:16-4:16)

“Like a stubborn heifer,

Israel is stubborn.

Can Yahweh

Now feed them

Like a lamb

In a broad pasture?”

Hosea insisted that Israel was stubborn, just like a stubborn heifer or young cow. How could Yahweh feed them, as if they were meek lambs in a wide-open pasture? Thus, there is a difference between the stubborn young cow of Israel and the mild-mannered lamb of Judah.
