1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H1961 that came H1954 to Hosea, H1121 the son H882 of Beeri, H3117 in the days H5818 of Uzziah, H3147 Jotham, H271 Ahaz, H2396 and Hezekiah, H4428 kings H3063 of Judah, H3117 and in the days H3379 of Jeroboam H1121 the son H3101 of Joash, H4428 king H3478 of Israel.
2 H8462 The beginning H1697 of the word H3068 of the LORD H1954 by Hosea. H3068 And the LORD H559 said H1954 to Hosea, H3212 Go, H3947 take H802 to you a wife H2183 of prostitutions H3206 and children H2183 of prostitutions: H776 for the land H2181 has committed H2181 great prostitution, H3068 departing from the LORD.
3 H3212 So he went H3947 and took H1586 Gomer H1323 the daughter H1691 of Diblaim; H2029 which conceived, H3205 and bore H1121 him a son.
4 H3068 And the LORD H559 said H7121 to him, Call H8034 his name H3157 Jezreel; H5750 for yet H4592 a little H6485 while, and I will avenge H1818 the blood H3157 of Jezreel H1004 on the house H3058 of Jehu, H7673 and will cause to cease H4468 the kingdom H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel.
5 H1961 And it shall come H3117 to pass at that day, H7665 that I will break H7198 the bow H3478 of Israel, H6010 in the valley H3157 of Jezreel.
6 H2029 And she conceived H5750 again, H3205 and bore H1323 a daughter. H559 And God said H7121 to him, Call H8034 her name H3819 Loruhamah: H3808 for I will no H5750 more H7355 have mercy H1004 on the house H3478 of Israel; H5375 but I will utterly take them away.
7 H7355 But I will have mercy H1004 on the house H3063 of Judah, H3467 and will save H3068 them by the LORD H430 their God, H3467 and will not save H7198 them by bow, H2719 nor by sword, H4421 nor by battle, H5483 by horses, H6571 nor by horsemen.
9 H559 Then said H7121 God, Call H8034 his name H3818 Loammi: H5971 for you are not my people, and I will not be your God.
10 H4557 Yet the number H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H2344 shall be as the sand H3220 of the sea, H834 which H3808 cannot H4058 be measured H3808 nor H5608 numbered; H1961 and it shall come H4725 to pass, that in the place H834 where H559 it was said H5971 to them, You are not my people, H559 there it shall be said H1121 to them, You are the sons H2416 of the living H410 God.
