אֱהִי Hosea 13:10. This word which is elsewhere, 1 fut. apoc. from the root הָיָה, is here the same as אַיֵּה, אֵי where? unless perhaps there is a false reading from verses -714, and we ought to read אַיֵּה. Render it אֱהִי מַלְכְּךָ אֵפוֹא “where then is thy king?” and join the words very closely, אֱהִי אֵפוֹא where then; [see also verse 14 Hosea 13:14 where this word ought clearly to be taken as an interrog. part, see 1 Corinthians 15:55. “Ewald regards this word (Gr. § 444) as compounded from אֱ (i.q. הֲ) and הִי i.e. hic, here; comp. Ethiop. ሀየ፡ there; ዘየ፡ here, hither. So, too, Hupfeld.” Ges. add.]
