The Call of Hosea
Hosea 1: 1-9
So he went and took Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim; and she conceived and bore him a son. Then the LORD said to him: “Give him the name Jezreel, for in a little while I will punish the house of Jehu for the bloodshed at Jezreel And bring to an end the kingdom of the house of Israel; On that day I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.:
When she conceived again and bore a daughter, the LORD said to him: “Give her the name Lo-ruhama; I no longer feel pity for the house of Israel: rather, I abhor them utterly. Yet for the house of Judah I feel pity; I will save them by the LORD, their God; But I will not save them by war, by sword or bow, by horses or horsemen.”
After she weaned Lo-ruhama, she conceived and bore a son.
Then the LORD said: “Give him the name Lo-ammi, for you are not my people, and I will not be your God.”
