I'm a layman with zero training in Hebrew, but from simply looking at the notes in the ESV Study Bible and the NET Bible, the Hebrew of Hosea 6:7 seems very complicated, and I understand why it is that folks conclude that "Adam" is a city, rather than the first man, but I also see how it is equally legitimate to interpret it as the first man. I notice in your post on the Covenant of Works there is no discussion of the exegetical issues involved in proving that Adam the first man is the best interpretation. Would you mind summarizing the exegetical proof of Adam as the first man for me so I can more easily digest what the issues are, and perhaps be better able to see the first man rather than the city. Apparently, Bible translators tend to favor the city interpretation, since ESV says "there (presumably, "at Adam") they dealt faithlessly with me" (Hos. 6:7b).
