CLV(i) 1 The word of Yahweh, which came to Hosea, son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah and Jotham and Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam, son of Joash, king of Israel." 2 The start of the word of Yahweh by Hosea:And Yahweh is saying to Hosea, Go, take to you a wife of prostitutions and children of prostitutions, for the land is verily committing prostitution rather than following Yahweh." 3 Then he is going and taking Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim; and she is becoming pregnant and is bearing for him a son." 4 And Yahweh is saying to him, Call his name Jezreel, for still a little and I visit the blood of Jezreel on the house of Jehu, and I cause the kingdom of the house of Israel to cease." 5 And it shall come to be in that day that I break the bow of Israel in the vale of Jezreel. 6 And she is becoming pregnant again and is bearing a daughter. And He is saying to him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah, for I will not continue further to have compassion on the house of Israel, seeing that verily I was bearing with them." 7 Yet on the house of Judah will I have compassion, and I will save them by Yahweh, their Elohim. Yet I will not save them by bow, or by sword, or by battle, by horses or by horsemen." 8 And she is weaning Lo-ruhamah. And she is becoming pregnant again and is bearing a son. 9 And He is saying, Call his name Lo-ammi, for you are not My people, and I am not your I Am Becoming." 10 Yet the number of the sons of Israel shall become as the sand of the sea, which is not being measured nor numbered. And it comes to be in the place in which it was being said to them, Not My people are you, there shall it be said to them, sons of the living El." 11 And the sons of Judah and the sons of Israel shall be convened together. And they shall place one head over them, and they shall go up from the land, for great is the day of Jezreel."
