Translation of Hosea 6:8
Gilead, your town commits idolatry, corruption and blood;
Gilead, your town commits idolatry, corruption and blood Gilead was steeped in heinous activities and violence. The pollutions of Gilead were located in the lands that were promised as an inheritance to the Tribes of Israel. Gilead would eventually be cleaned for a while and the territory would be returned to the rightful owners. Now, the world waits for this to happen again, quite possibly and hopefully for the last time.
