Hosea's Wife and Children

1 The word of the LORD which came to 1Hosea the son of Beeri, during the days of 2Uzziah, 3Jotham, 4Ahaz and 5Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and during the days of 6Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel. 2 When the LORD first spoke through Hosea, the LORD said to Hosea, "7Go, take to yourself a wife of harlotry and have children of harlotry; for 8the land commits flagrant harlotry, aforsaking the LORD." 3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and 9bore him a son. 4 And the LORD said to him, "Name him 10Jezreel; for yet a little while, and 11I will bpunish the house of Jehu for the bloodshed of Jezreel, and 12I will put an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel. 5 "On that day I will 13break the bow of Israel in the 14valley of Jezreel." 6 Then she conceived again and gave birth to a daughter. And cthe LORD said to him, "Name her dLo-ruhamah, for I will no longer 15have compassion on the house of Israel, that I would ever forgive them. 7 "But I will have 16compassion on the house of Judah and 17deliver them by the LORD their God, and will not deliver them by 18bow, sword, battle, horses or horsemen." 8 When she had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she conceived and gave birth to a son. 9 And ethe LORD said, "Name him fLo-ammi, for you are not My people and I am not gyour God." 10 hYet the number of the sons of Israel Will be like the 19sand of the sea, Which cannot be measured or numbered; And 20in the place Where it is said to them, "You are 21not My people," It will be said to them, "You are the 22sons of the living God." 11 And the 23sons of Judah and the sons of Israel will be 24gathered together, And they will appoint for themselves 25one leader, And they will go up from the land, For great will be the day of Jezreel.
