Through Hosea God was pronouncing judgment on the people in the Northern Kingdom. In chapter five, He focused on the failure of the leaders in their assignment to live a positive example of integrity before the people. In verse 10, God condemns the leaders of the tribe of Judah for emulating the actions of the Northern Kingdom by moving the boundary stones. Boundary stones were legal markers placed generations earlier to identify property lines for each family’s God-given plot of land. These defined boundaries were not to be moved because they helped protect the inheritance of widows and orphans when something happened to the head of the family.
