HOSEA (~760 – 722 BC)


1:6 (Acts 17:30-31)   a daughter named Lo-Ruchama, for YHVH will no longer show mercy to Israel to forgive them

1:7 (Zech 4:6; Mt 1:21)   Judah to be saved – not by bow, sword or battle, but by YHVH their God

2:1 [1:10 Eng] (1Pt 2:9-10)   In the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people’, they will be called sons of the living God, who is God both of the Jews and of the Gentiles. 

2:18 [16 Eng]   In that day, declares YHVH, you will call me ‘Ishi’; you will no longer call me ‘Baali’.

2:20 [18 Eng]   In that day, I will make a covenant for Israel with the animals (Ezek 34:29; Is 65:25); war will cease (Is 2:4; Mic 4:3)

2:21-22 [19-20 Eng]  YHVH will betroth Israel to Himself forever, and Israel will know YHVH (Yeshua!)

2:25 [23 Eng](1 Pt 2:9-10)  YHVH, in that day, will have mercy on the one not shown mercy, and will say to him (singular) who was not His people, ‘You are My people’, and he will say, ‘My God’.

3:4-5   The Israelis will abide many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, without ephod or teraphim.  Afterward the Israelis shall return and seek YHVH their God and David their king.  They shall fear YHVH and His goodness in the latter days.

4:1-3   YHVH’s charge against Israel:  no truth, no lovingkindness (grace), no knowledge of God in the land; only cursing, lying, murder, stealing and adultery.  [the chosen people breaking all the 10 commandments]; they break all bounds.

4:14   God will not punish the women for prostitution and adultery because the men themselves do the same things.  A people without understanding come to ruin!

5:15 (Lev 1:7; Is 53:3; Ezek 36:37; Mt 23:34-39; Jn 16:9-10)   YHVH will go back to His place until Israel admits their guilt.  And they will seek My face; in their misery they will earnestly seek Me.

 6:1-2 (2Pet 3:8)   God has injured; He will heal.  After two days He will revive Israel; on the third day He will restore us (unify) that we may live in His presence.

10:8 (Lk 23:30; Rev 6:12)   The high places of wickedness will be destroyed – it is the sin of Israel. . . . They will say to the mountains, “Cover us!” and to the hills, “Fall on us!”

12:3 [2 Eng]; (Rom 11:27)   YHVH has a charge to bring against Judah; He will punish Jacob according to his deeds.

14:2-3 [1-2 Eng]   repentance

14:5 [4 Eng], 10 [9 Eng](Dan 12:10)  blessing, healing, forgiveness; He who is wise will understand these things.  He who is prudent will know them.  The ways of YHVH are right; the righteous walk in them, but the transgressors stumble in them.
