Running this search yields these results in ESV: 

All of the 2 Kings references look good. 

However, I don't understand why Jer 50:17 and 50:18 are hits.

In v17, the hit is "the king of Assyria", which Hoshea is not. Perhaps Hoshea is to be included in the group "Israel", since Hosea was a king in Israel?? But if so, then both "Israel" and "him" should be the hits in the verse, not "the king of Israel."

In v18, "the king of Assyria" is the direct object of God's wrath, but it reflects a hit for <Person Hoshea (king)>. 

Could someone explain what's going on with tagging here?

Thanks, o' wise ones!

Checking via Information or Context Menu, this appears to be a simple error in coding and should be reported as such.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I am studying the Minor Prophets specifically Hosea... I ran into the same thing with trusty NKJV..  I skipped over because of being focused on other things at the time...

But I agree something "just ain't kosher"...  Indifferent

This is what I thought, but wanted someone much wise than me to confirm. Thank you!

FL, can we get this added to the bug list?
