1 H1697 The word H3068 of Yahweh H1954 that came to 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 H3068 When Yahweh H559 spoke H8462 at first H1954 by Hosea, H3068 Yahweh H559 said H1954 to Hosea, H3212 "Go, H3947 take H802 for yourself a wife H2183 of prostitution H3206 and children H2183 of unfaithfulness; H776 for the land H2181 commits great H2181 adultery, H310 forsaking H3068 Yahweh."
3 H3212 So he went H3947 and took H1586 Gomer H1323 the daughter H1691 of Diblaim; H2029 and she conceived, H3205 and bore H1121 him a son.
4 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H7121 to 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 on the house H3058 of Jehu, H4468 and will cause the kingdom H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel H7673 to cease.
5 H3117 It will happen in that day H7665 that I will break H7198 the bow H3478 of Israel H6010 in the valley H3157 of Jezreel."
6 H2029 She conceived again, H3205 and bore H1323 a daughter. H559 Then he said H7121 to him, "Call H8034 her name H3819 Lo-Ruhamah; H7355 for I will no longer have mercy H1004 on the house H3478 of Israel, H5375 that I should H5375 in any way pardon them.
7 H7355 But I will have mercy H1004 on the house H3063 of Judah, H3467 and will save H3068 them by Yahweh H430 their God, H3467 and will not save H7198 them by bow, H2719 sword, H4421 battle, H5483 horses, H6571 or horsemen."
9 H559 He said, H7121 "Call H8034 his name H3818 Lo-Ammi; H5971 for you are not my people, and I will not be yours.
10 H4557 Yet the number H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H2344 will be as the sand H3220 of the sea, H4058 which can't be measured H5608 nor numbered; H4725 and it will come to pass that, in the place H559 where it was said H5971 to them, ‘You are not my people,' H559 they will be called H1121 ‘sons H2416 of the living H410 God.'
