Gilead is a city of those who work iniquity;
it is stained with blood. Bible

“Gilead is a city.” Although the common use of “Gilead” was of a region (the region east of the Jordan River south of the Sea of Galilee and north of the Dead Sea), the statement that “Gilead” in Hosea 6:8 “is a city” means the reference here is most likely to the city of Ramoth-Gilead in northeastern Gilead.
