Hosea’s Wife and Children1 The word of the Lord which came to a Hosea the son of Beeri, during the days of b Uzziah c Jotham d Ahaz and e Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and during the days of f Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel. 2 When the Lord first spoke through Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea, g “Go, take to yourself a wife of harlotry and have children of harlotry; for h the land commits flagrant harlotry, ▼
▼ Lit from not following afterforsaking the Lord.” 3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and j bore him a son. 4 And the Lord said to him, “Name him k Jezreel; for yet a little while, and l I will ▼
▼ Lit visit the bloodshed of Jezreel on the house of Jehupunish the house of Jehu for the bloodshed of Jezreel, and n I will put an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel. 5 “On that day I will o break the bow of Israel in the p valley of Jezreel.” 6 Then she conceived again and gave birth to a daughter. And ▼
▼ Lit Hethe Lord said to him, “Name her ▼
▼ I.e. she has not obtained compassionLo-ruhamah, for I will no longer s have compassion on the house of Israel, that I would ever forgive them. 7 “But I will have t compassion on the house of Judah and u deliver them by the Lord their God, and will not deliver them by v bow, sword, battle, horses or horsemen.” 8 When she had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she conceived and gave birth to a son. 9 And ▼
▼ Lit Hethe Lord said, “Name him ▼
▼ I.e. not my peopleLo-ammi, for you are not My people and I am not ▼
▼ Lit yoursyour God.” 10 ▼
▼ Ch 2:1 in HebYet the number of the sons of Israel
Will be like the aa sand of the sea,
Which cannot be measured or numbered;
And ab in the place
Where it is said to them,
“You are ac not My people,”
It will be said to them,
“You are the ad sons of the living God.”
11 And the ae sons of Judah and the sons of Israel will be af gathered together,
And they will appoint for themselves ag one leader,
And they will go up from the land,
For great will be the day of Jezreel.
