Hosea 1

Hosea’s Wife and Children

1The word of the Lord 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.

When the Lord first spoke through Hosea, the Lord said to him, “Go, take for yourself a [a]wife of prostitution and have children of [her] prostitution; for the land commits great acts of prostitution by [b]not following the Lord.” So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son. And the Lord said to him, “Name him Jezreel; for yet in a little while I will avenge the blood [that was shed in the Valley] of Jezreel and inflict the punishment for it on the house of [c]Jehu, and I will put an end to the kingdom of the [d]house of Israel. On that day I will break the bow [of the military power] of Israel in the Valley of Jezreel.”

Then Gomer conceived again and gave birth to a daughter. And the Lord said to Hosea, “Name her Lo-Ruhamah (not shown mercy), for I will no longer have mercy on the house of Israel, that I would ever forgive them. But I will have mercy on the house of Judah and will rescue them by the Lord their God, and will [e]not rescue them by bow, sword, war, horses, or horsemen.”

Now when Gomer had weaned Lo-Ruhamah, she conceived and gave birth to a son. And the Lord said, “Name him Lo-Ammi (not my people), for you are not My people and I am not your God.”

10 
Yet the number of the [f]sons of Israel
Shall be like the sand of the sea,
Which cannot be measured or numbered;
And in the place
Where it is said to them,
“You are not My people,”
It will be said to them,
You are the sons of the living God.”
11 
Then the sons of Judah and the sons of Israel shall be gathered together,
And they will appoint for themselves one leader,
And they will go up from the land,
For great and glorious will be the day of [g]Jezreel.

  1. Hosea 1:2 Some scholars interpret this to mean that Gomer was chaste at the time of the marriage, but later became an adulteress. As such, she symbolizes the future unfaithfulness of Israel.
  2. Hosea 1:2 Lit forsaking.
  3. Hosea 1:4 Jehu murdered Ahab’s sons in order to seize the throne of Israel.
  4. Hosea 1:4 I.e. Israel, the Northern Kingdom, which included ten of the original tribes of Israel. Samaria was the capital city.
  5. Hosea 1:7 Isaiah also made this prophecy (Is 31:8, 9) and both he and Hosea lived to see its fulfillment (Is 37:36). See also 2 Kin 19:35-37.
  6. Hosea 1:10 In general, sons (children) of Israel or Israel or Israelites refers to all the people (males and females) of the various tribes descended from the twelve sons (Gen 35:23-26) of Jacob (later renamed Israel by God). In verses about things such as warfare or circumcision, sons of Israel or Israel or Israelites usually refers only to the males. Tribes of ancient people were identified by the name of their founding ancestor. Therefore, this same general rule applies to individual tribal groups, e.g., sons of Reuben, Reuben, Reubenites, and so throughout.
  7. Hosea 1:11 The spiritually reborn Israel, the people whom the Lord has chosen and blessed.

何西阿书 1

1乌西雅、约坦、亚哈斯和希西迦做犹大王,约阿施的儿子耶罗波安做以色列王期间,耶和华将祂的话传给备利的儿子何西阿。

何西阿娶妓女为妻

耶和华首次向何西阿说话时,对他说:“你去娶一个妓女为妻,和她生养儿女,因为这片土地上的人极其淫乱,背弃了耶和华。” 于是,何西阿娶了滴拉音的女儿歌蜜为妻,她怀孕为他生了一个儿子。 耶和华对何西阿说:“给他取名叫耶斯列[a],因为再过不久,我就要因耶户家在耶斯列的屠杀而惩罚他们,消灭以色列国。 那时,我要在耶斯列平原折断以色列的弓。” 后来,歌蜜又怀孕生了一个女儿。耶和华对何西阿说:“给她取名叫罗·路哈玛[b],因为我将不再怜悯以色列家,也不再赦免他们的罪。 但我要怜悯犹大家,使他们依靠他们的上帝耶和华得到拯救,而不是依靠战弓、刀剑、马匹、骑兵和战争。” 罗·路哈玛断奶后,歌蜜又怀孕生了一个儿子。 耶和华说:“给他取名叫罗·阿米[c],因为以色列人不再是我的子民,我也不再是他们的上帝。

以色列的复兴

10 “然而,以色列的人数必像海沙一样量不尽、数不完。从前我在什么地方对他们说‘你们不是我的子民’,将来也要在那里对他们说‘你们是永活上帝的儿女’。 11 那时,犹大人和以色列人将被聚集起来,为自己选立一位首领,从流亡之地返回故乡,安居乐业。耶斯列的日子将是伟大的日子。
