THE REJECTION OF YISRAEL PICTURED BY THE NAMES OF HOSHEA'S THREE CHILDREN (1:1-9)

1:1 The Dvar YHWH (יהוה) that came unto Hoshea (הושׁע) Ben Be'eri, in the days of Uziyah, Yotam, Achaz, [and] Yechizkiyah, melek him Yehudah, and in the yamim of Yarov`am Ben Yo'ash ( יואשׁ), melekh Yisrael.

1:2

The beginning of   Dvar YHWH (יהוה) by Hoshea (הושׁע).

And YHWH (יהוה) said to Hoshea (הושׁע):

Go, take unto thee a eshet zenunim (wife of zanah (whoredom, harlot) and benai zanah (whoredom, harlot): for the eretz hath committed great zanah (whoredom, harlot), [departing] from YHWH (יהוה).

1:3 So he went and took Gomer Bat Divlayim; which conceived, and bare him a son.

1:4 And YHWH (יהוה) said unto him

Call his name Yizre-El; for yet a little [while], and I will avenge the blood of Yizre-El upon the bayit Yehu, and will cause to cease the Mamlechut ha bayit Yisrael.

1:5 And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Yisrael in the valley of Yizre-El.

1:6 And she conceived again, and bare a daughter.

And [Elohim] said unto him:

Call her name Lo Ruchamah (not pitied):

For I will no more have chesed upon the bayit Yisrael; but I will utterly take them away.

1:7 But I will have chesed upon the bayit Yehudah, and will yasha (save) them by YHWH (יהוה) their Elohim (אלהים), and will not yasha (save) them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.

1:8 Now when she had weaned Lo Ruchamah, she conceived, and bare a son.

1:9 Then said [Elohim (אלהים) ],

Kara his name Lo Ami: for ye [are] not My people, and I will not be your [Elohim (אלהים)].

Chapter 2

1:10[2:1] Yet the number of the benai Yisrael 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 benai EL Chai.

1:11[2:2] Then shall the benai Yehudah and the benai Yisrael be gathered together, and appoint themselves Rosh Echad, and they shall come up out of the eretz: for great [shall be] the day of Yizre-El.
