The editorial history of the book Hosea
It is the suggestion of this essay that the book of Hosea, was supplied with an introduction and ending by an editor from the wisdom circles. This thesis is based on the fact that Hosea 1: 2a and 14: 10 correspond remarkably with the introductions and endings of Egyptian wisdom instructions (for instance that of Amenemopet). The absence of this kind of introductions and endings in other books of the Old Testament leads to the conclusion that the prophecies of Hosea found their way to Judah in the form of a complete book.
