Calves of the Lips

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
KJV translation of a very difficult Hebrew phrase in Hosea 14:2 . If this is the correct translation, the meaning is very obscure, possibly referring to vows to sacrifice cattle (REB). Modern translations supply different vowels to the consonants of the Hebrew text and read “fruit of the lips,” which means giving praise to God.
