Hosea 8:2 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Israel shalt cry - The rapidity of the eagle's flight is well imitated in the rapidity of the sentences in this place.

My God, we know thee - The same sentiment, from the same sort of persons, under the same feelings, as that in the Gospel of St. Matthew, Matthew 7:29 : "Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? Then will I profess unto them, I never Knew You."
