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.

Oséias 1

1Palavra do Senhor que veio a Oséias, filho de Beeri, durante os reinados de Uzias, Jotão, Acaz e Ezequias, reis de Judá, e de Jeroboão, filho de Jeoás, rei de Israel.

A Mulher e os Filhos de Oséias

Quando o Senhor começou a falar por meio de Oséias, disse-lhe: “Vá, tome uma mulher adúltera e filhos da infidelidade, porque a nação é culpada do mais vergonhoso adultério por afastar-se do Senhor”. Por isso ele se casou com Gômer, filha de Diblaim; ela engravidou e lhe deu um filho.

Então o Senhor disse a Oséias: “Dê-lhe o nome de Jezreel, porque logo castigarei a dinastia de Jeú por causa do massacre ocorrido em Jezreel, e darei fim ao reino de Israel. Naquele dia quebrarei o arco de Israel no vale de Jezreel”.

Gômer engravidou novamente e deu à luz uma filha. Então o Senhor disse a Oséias: “Dê-lhe o nome de Lo-Ruama[a], pois não mais mostrarei amor para com a nação de Israel, não ao ponto de perdoá-la. Contudo, tratarei com amor a nação de Judá; e eu lhe concederei vitória, não pelo arco, pela espada ou por combate, nem por cavalos e cavaleiros, mas pelo Senhor, o seu Deus”.

Depois de desmamar Lo-Ruama, Gômer teve outro filho. Então o Senhor disse: “Dê-lhe o nome de Lo-Ami[b], pois vocês não são meu povo, e eu não sou seu Deus.

10 “Contudo os israelitas ainda serão como a areia da praia, que não se pode medir nem contar. No lugar onde se dizia a eles: ‘Vocês não são meu povo’, eles serão chamados ‘filhos do Deus vivo’. 11 O povo de Judá e o povo de Israel serão reunidos, e eles designarão para si um só líder, e se levantarão da terra, pois será grande o dia de Jezreel.
