THE BOOK OF HOSEA

THE SUPERSCRIPTION, 1:1

THE word of the LORD that1 came to Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam, the son of Joash, king of Israel.


THE MARRIAGE OF HOSEA,
1:2-9

In the beginning, when the LORD2 spoke through Hosea, then the LORD said to Hosea,

"Go, and take to yourself a harlotrous wife, and harlotrous children; For the land has committed great harlotry, turning from following the LORD."

So he went and took Gomer, the3 daughter of Diblaim, and she became pregnant and bore him a son. Then the4

LORD said to him,

"Call him Jezreel; for but a little while, And I will demand the blood of Jezreel from the house of Jehu; And I will bring to an end the dominion of the house of Israel. And it shall come to pass on that day,5 That I will break the bow of Israel, in the valley of Jezreel."

When she became pregnant again6 and bore a daughter, he said to him,

"Call her 'She-who-is-unpitied'; for I will not again Have pity upon the house of Israel, that I should ever forgive them. But upon the house of Judah I will7 have pity; And I will deliver them through the LORD, their God; And I will not deliver them by bow, Nor by sword, nor by war, Nor by horses and horsemen."

Then she weaned "She-who-is-un-8 pitied," and became pregnant, and bore a son. And he said,9

"Call him, 'Not-my-people'; For you are not my people, And I am not your God."


GLIMPSES OF FUTURE
GLORY, 1: 10-2:1

"Then the number of the children of 10 Israel shall be like the sands of the sea,

Which can be neither measured nor numbered;

And whereas it was said to them, 'You are not my people,'

It shall be said to them, 'Sons of the living God.'

Then the children of Judah and the 11 children of Israel shall be gathered together,

And they shall appoint over themselves one head;

And they shall go up from the land, for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

Say to your brother, 'My-people,' 2

And to your sister, 'She-that-ispitied.' "


DENUNCIATION OF ISRAEL
AS A FAITHLESS WIFE,
2:2-13

'Reason with your mother, reason -- 2

For she is not my wife,

And I am not her husband --

That she put away her harlotry from before her,

And her adultery from between her breasts;

Lest I strip her naked, 3

And place her as in the day she was born,

And make her like the desert,

And set her like a parched land,

And slay her with thirst.

And upon her children I will have no 4 pity,

Because they are harlot's children.

For their mother played the harlot; 5

She who bore them acted shamelessly.

For she said, 'I will go after my lovers,

Who give me my bread and my water,

My wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.'

Therefore, lo, I am going to hedge up 6 her way with thorns;
