Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The word of the LORD that came to Hoshea the son of Be'eri, in the days of `Uzziyah, Yotam, Achaz, and Hizkiyahu, kings of Yehudah, and in the days of Yarov`am the son of Yo'ash, king of Yisra'el. 1 The word of the LORD that came to Hosea son of Beeri during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and during the reign of Jeroboam son of Jehoash king of Israel:
2 When the LORD spoke at the first by Hoshea, the LORD said to Hoshea, "Go, take for yourself a wife of prostitution and children of unfaithfulness; for the land commits great adultery against from the LORD." 2 When the LORD began to speak through Hosea, the LORD said to him, "Go, take to yourself an adulterous wife and children of unfaithfulness, because the land is guilty of the vilest adultery in departing from the LORD."
3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Divlayim; and she conceived, and bore him a son. 3 So he married Gomer daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.
4 The LORD said to him, "Call his name Yizre`el; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Yizre`el on the house of Yehu, and will cause the kingdom of the house of Yisra'el to cease. 4 Then the LORD said to Hosea, "Call him Jezreel, because I will soon punish the house of Jehu for the massacre at Jezreel, and I will put an end to the kingdom of Israel.
5 It will happen in that day that I will break the bow of Yisra'el in the valley of Yizre`el." 5 In that day I will break Israel's bow in the Valley of Jezreel."
6 She conceived again, and bore a daughter. Then he said to him, "Call her name Lo-Ruhamah; for I will no longer have mercy on the house of Yisra'el, that I should in any way pardon them. 6 Gomer conceived again and gave birth to a daughter. Then the LORD said to Hosea, "Call her Lo-Ruhamah, for I will no longer show love to the house of Israel, that I should at all forgive them.
7 But I will have mercy on the house of Yehudah, 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." 7 Yet I will show love to the house of Judah; and I will save them--not by bow, sword or battle, or by horses and horsemen, but by the LORD their God."
8 Now when she had weaned Lo-Ruhamah, she conceived, and bore a son. 8 After she had weaned Lo-Ruhamah, Gomer had another son.
9 He said, "Call his name Lo-Ammi; for you are not my people, and I will not be yours. 9 Then the LORD said, "Call him Lo-Ammi, for you are not my people, and I am not your God.
10 Yet the number of the children of Yisra'el will be as the sand of the sea, which can't be measured nor numbered; and it will come to pass that, in the place where it was said to them, 'You are not my people,' they will be called 'sons of the living God.' 10 "Yet the Israelites will be like the sand on the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. In the place where it was said to them, 'You are not my people,' they will be called 'sons of the living God.'
11 The children of Yehudah and the children of Yisra'el will be gathered together, and they will appoint themselves one head, and will go up from the land; for great will be the day of Yizre`el. 11 The people of Judah and the people of Israel will be reunited, and they will appoint one leader and will come up out of the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel.
