      Unfortunately this verse is not preserved in the extant, identified
      manuscripts found at Qumran (both biblical mss and pesharim). 4QXII-g
      contains a good portion of chapter 11 of Hosea but not this verse. The
      manuscript is so poorly preserved (most of the text is illegible to the
      naked eye). It is possible that with new photographing and imaging
      techniques additional text will be deciphered.

      Jimmy's explanation involving palaeography and orthography is most plausible.
