Abstract Hosea 2.20 (Eng. 18) describes the resolution of some sort of human/animal conflict. Several things connect Hos. 2.20 to Gen. 9.2, where human/animal conflict is created. Assuming that Hos. 2.20 and Gen. 9.2 are related texts, they describe a paired set of events: the beginning of human/animal conflict in the distant past, and the end of that same conflict at some point in the future. Hos. 2.20 was, therefore, describing the resolution of the human/animal conflict which God wove into the fabric of the postdiluvian world in Gen. 9.2. Thus, Hos. 2.20 described a lasting, constitutional change to the human/animal relationship.
