1 The word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that came to Hoshĕa son of Be’ĕri, in the days of Uzziyah, Yotham, Aḥaz, and Ḥizqiyah, sovereigns of Yahuḏah, and in the days of Yaroḇ’am son of Yo’ash, sovereign of Yisra’ĕl.
2 The beginning of the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 with Hoshĕa. And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to Hoshĕa, “Go, take yourself a woman of whoring and children of whoring, for the land has utterly whored away from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.”
3 So he went and took Gomer, daughter of Diḇayim, and she conceived and bore him a son.
4 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to him, “Call his name Yizre’ĕl, for in a little while I shall revenge the bloodshed of Yizre’ĕl on the house of Yahu, and put an end to the reign of the house of Yisra’ĕl.
5 “And it shall be in that day that I shall break the bow of Yisra’ĕl in the Valley of Yizre’ĕl.”
6 And she conceived again and bore a daughter. And He said to him, “Call her name Lo-Ruḥamah, for no longer do I have compassion on the house of Yisra’ĕl so as to forgive them at all.
7 “But I shall have compassion on the house of Yahuḏah and save them by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 their Elohim, and not save them by bow or by sword or battle, by horses or horsemen.”
8 And she weaned Lo-Ruḥamah, and conceived and bore a son,
9 then He said, “Call his name Lo-Ammi, for you are not My people, and I am not for you.
10 “Yet the number of the children of Yisra’ĕl shall be as the sand of the sea, which is not measured nor counted. And it shall be in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ they shall be called, ‘You are the sons of the living Ĕl.’
11 “And the children of Yahuḏah and the children of Yisra’ĕl shall be gathered together, and appoint for themselves one head, and shall come up out of the earth, for great is the day of Yizre’ĕl!
