1 H1697 The word H3068 of the Lord H1954 that came unto Hosea, H1121 the son H882 of Beeri, H3117 in the days H5818 of Uzziah, H3147 Jotham, H271 Ahaz, H3169 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 H1696 of the word H3068 of the Lord H1954 by Hosea. H3068 And the Lord H559 said H1954 to Hosea, H3212 Go, H3947 take H802 unto you a wife H2183 of whoredoms H3206 and sons H2183 of whoredoms: H776 for the land H2181 has committed great H2181 whoredom, H310 departing from H3068 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 unto him, Call H8034 his name H3157 Jezreel; H4592 for yet a little H6485 while, and I will avenge H1818 the blood H3157 of Jezreel H1004 upon the house H3058 of Jehu, H7673 and will cause to cease H4468 the kingdom H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel.
5 H3117 And it shall come 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 again, H3205 and bore H1323 a daughter. H559 And God said H7121 unto him, Call H8034 her name H3819 Lo–ruhamah: H3254 for I will no more H7355 have mercy H1004 upon the house H3478 of Israel; H5375 but I will utterly H5375 take them away.
7 H7355 But I will have mercy H1004 upon 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 Lo–ammi: H5971 for you are not my people, and I will not be your God.
10 H4557 Yet the number H1121 of the sons H3478 of Israel H2344 shall be as the sand H3220 of the sea, H4058 which cannot be measured H5608 nor numbered; H4725 and it shall come to pass, that in the place H559 where it was said H5971 unto them, You are not my people, H559 there it shall be said H1121 unto them, You are the sons H2416 of the living H410 God.
