1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD 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 H8462 The beginning H1696 [H8763] of the word H3068 of the LORD H1954 by Hosea. H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H1954 to Hosea, H3212 [H8798] Go, H3947 [H8798] take H802 to thee a wife H2183 of harlotry H3206 and children H2183 of harlotry: H776 for the land H2181 [H8800] hath committed great H2181 [H8799] harlotry, H310 departing from H3068 the LORD.
3 H3212 [H8799] So he went H3947 [H8799] and took H1586 Gomer H1323 the daughter H1691 of Diblaim; H2029 [H8799] who conceived, H3205 [H8799] and bore H1121 him a son.
4 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H7121 [H8798] to him, Call H8034 his name H3157 Jezreel; H4592 for yet a little H6485 [H8804] while, and I will avenge H1818 the blood H3157 of Jezreel H1004 upon the house H3058 of Jehu, H7673 [H8689] 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 [H8804] that I will break H7198 the bow H3478 of Israel H6010 in the valley H3157 of Jezreel.
6 H2029 [H8799] And she conceived again, H3205 [H8799] and bore H1323 a daughter. H559 [H8799] And God said H7121 [H8798] to him, Call H8034 her name H3819 [H8795] Loruhamah: H3254 [H8686] for I will no more H7355 [H8762] fondle H1004 the house H3478 of Israel; H5375 [H8800] but I will utterly H5375 [H8799] take them away.
7 H7355 [H8762] But I will fondle H1004 the house H3063 of Judah, H3467 [H8689] and will liberate H3068 them by the LORD H430 their God, H3467 [H8686] and will not liberate H7198 them by bow, H2719 nor by sword, H4421 nor by battle, H5483 by horses, H6571 nor by horsemen.
8 H1580 [H8799] Now when she had weaned H3819 [H8795] Loruhamah, H2029 [H8799] she conceived, H3205 [H8799] and bore H1121 a son.
9 H559 [H8799] Then said H7121 [H8798] God, Call H8034 his name H3818 Loammi: H5971 for ye 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 [H8735] which cannot be measured H5608 [H8735] nor numbered; H4725 and it shall come to pass, that in the place H559 [H8735] where it was said H5971 to them, Ye are not my people, H559 [H8735] there it shall be said H1121 to them, Ye are the sons H2416 of the living H410 God.
