Hosea Chapter 1

Hosea’s Family
1   The  word  of  the  LORD  that  came  unto 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.
2   The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto  you  a  wife  of  harlotry  and  children  of harlotry:   for   the   land   has   committed   great harlotry, departing from the LORD.
3   So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; who conceived, and bore him a son.
4   And the LORD said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel.
5   And it shall come to pass on that day, that I will  break  the  bow  of  Israel  in  the  valley  of Jezreel.
6   And she conceived again, and bore a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.
7   But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God,  and  will  not  save  them  by  bow,  nor  by sword,   nor   by   battle,   by   horses,   nor   by horsemen.
8   Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bore a son.
9   Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for you are not my people, and I will not be your God.
10  Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, you are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, you are the sons of the living God.
11  Then shall the children of Judah and the children  of  Israel  be  gathered  together,  and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
