1The word of Yahweh that came to Hosea the son of Beeri in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.

2When Yahweh began to speak with Hosea, Yahweh said to Hosea, “Go, take for yourself a wife of prostitution and have children of prostitution; for the land commits great adultery, forsaking Yahweh.”

3So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; and she conceived and bore him a son.
  4Yahweh said to him, “Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel on the house of Jehu, and will cause the kingdom of the house of Israel to cease.
  5It will happen in that day that I will break the bow of Israel in the Valley of Jezreel.”

6She conceived again, and bore a daughter. Then he said to him, “Call her name Lo-ruhamah; for I will no longer have compassion on the house of Israel that I should at all forgive them.
  7But I will have compassion on the house of Judah, and will save them by Yahweh their God, but will not save them by bow, sword, battle, horses, or horsemen.”

8Now when she had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she conceived, and bore a son.
  9He said, “Call his name Lo-ammi; for you are not my people and I will not be your God.
  10Yet the number of the children of Israel will be as the sand of the sea that cannot be measured nor numbered; and it will come to pass that in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’
  11The children of Judah and the children of Israel will be gathered together, and they will appoint themselves one head, and will flourish in the land; for great will be the day of Jezreel.”
