King James Version

Hosea 1

1The word of the Lord that came unto 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.

The beginning of the word of the Lord by Hosea. And the Lord said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the Lord.

So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son.

And the Lord said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel.

And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel, in the valley of Jezreel.

And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.

But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.

Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.

Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.

10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

Hoseya 1

1Awa ndi mawu amene Yehova anayankhula kwa Hoseya mwana wa Beeri pa nthawi ya ulamuliro wa Uziya, Yotamu, Ahazi ndi Hezekiya, mafumu a ku Yuda ndiponso pa nthawi ya ulamuliro wa Yeroboamu mwana wa Yowasi mfumu ya ku Israeli.

Mkazi wa Hoseya ndi Ana Ake

Yehova atayamba kuyankhula kudzera mwa Hoseya, Yehova anati kwa Hoseyayo, “Pita kakwatire mkazi wachiwerewere ndipo ubereke naye ana mʼchiwerewere chake pakuti anthu a mʼdziko muno achimwa pochita chigololo choyipitsitsa, posiya Yehova.” Motero Hoseya anakwatira Gomeri mwana wamkazi wa Dibulaimu, ndipo mkaziyo anakhala woyembekezera nabala mwana wamwamuna.

Tsono Yehova anati kwa Hoseya, “Umutche dzina loti Yezireeli, pakuti ndili pafupi kulanga banja la Yehu chifukwa cha anthu amene anawapha ku Yezireeli ndipo ndidzathetsa ufumu wa Israeli. Tsiku limenelo ndidzathyola uta wa Israeli mʼchigwa cha Yezireeli.”

Gomeri anakhala woyembekezeranso ndipo anabereka mwana wamkazi. Ndipo Yehova anati kwa Hoseya, “Umutche dzina loti ‘Sakondedwa’ pakuti sindidzaonetsanso chikondi changa pa nyumba ya Israeli, kuti ndingawakhululukire konse. Komatu ndidzaonetsa chikondi pa nyumba ya Yuda; ndipo ndidzawapulumutsa, osati ndi uta, lupanga kapena nkhondo, kapena akavalo ndi okwerapo ake, koma ine Yehova Mulungu wawo ndidzawapulumutsa.”

Sakondedwa ataleka kuyamwa, Gomeri anabereka mwana wina wamwamuna. Pamenepo Yehova anati, “Umutche dzina loti Sianthuanga,” pakuti inu si ndinu anthu anga ndipo Ine si ndine Mulungu wanu.

10 “Komabe Aisraeli adzachuluka ngati mchenga wa mʼmbali mwa nyanja umene sangathe kuwuyeza kapena kuwuwerenga. Pamalo omwe ananena kuti, ‘Sindinu anthu anga,’ pomweponso adzawatchula kuti ‘Ana a Mulungu wamoyo.’ 11 Anthu a ku Yuda ndi anthu a ku Israeli adzasonkhananso pamodzi ndipo adzasankha mtsogoleri mmodzi ndi kutuluka mʼdzikomo, pakuti tsiku la Yezireeli lidzakhala lalikulu kwambiri.”
