Wesley's Notes for Hosea 3:2


3:2 Fifteen pieces of silver - It was half the value of a slave, #Exod 21:32|. An homer of barley - About fourteen bushels. Of barley - The meanest kind of provision; and suited to a low condition, all this is, to set forth Israel's indigence and ingratitude, and God's bounty to Israel.
