 Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of
1:2 The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD
 said to Hosea, Go take to thee a wife addicted to lewdness and
 children of lewdness; for the land hath committed great
 lewdness, [departing] from the LORD.
1:3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; who
 conceived, and bore him a son.
1:4 And the LORD said to 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.
1:5 And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the
 bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.
1:6 And she conceived again, and bore a daughter. And [God] said
 to him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah: for I will no more have mercy
 upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.
1:7 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.
1:8 Now when she had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she conceived, and bore
 a son.
1:9 Then said [God], Call his name Lo-ammi: for ye [are] not my
 people, and I will not be your [God].
1:10 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 to
 them, Ye [are] not my people, [there] it shall be said to them,
 [Ye are] the sons of the living God.
1:11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel
 be assembled, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall
 come up from the land: for great [shall be] the day of Jezreel.
