Boyd’s Bible Dictionary:

(house of idols). A place in Benjamin (Josh. 7:2; 18:12; 1 Sam. 13:5; 14:23). Stands for Bethel (Hos. 4:15; 5:8; 10:5).

Concise Bible Dictionary:

A place or “wilderness” of Benjamin near Bethel (Josh. 7:2; Josh. 18:12; 1 Sam. 13:5; 1 Sam. 14:23; Hos. 4:15; Hos. 5:8; Hos. 10:5). Though this is said to be on the east of Bethel, in Hosea it would appear to be a name given to Bethel itself as being no longer the “house of God,” but the “house of vanity” because of the idols there.
