Chapter 1

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)


      This is the word of the Lord, that came unto Oseas the son of Beeri, in the days of Oseas, Joathan, Ahaz, and Jezekiah kings of Judah: and in time of Jeroboam the son of Joas king of Israell.
      First , when the Lord spake unto Oseas he said unto him: Go thy way, take an harlot to thy wife, and get children by her: for the land hath committed great whoredom against the Lord. So he went, and took Gomer the daughter of Deblaim: which conceived, and brought forth a son. And the Lord said unto him, Call his name Iesrael, for I will shortly avenge the blood of Iesrael upon the house of Jehu, and will bring the kingdom of the house of Israell to and end. Then will I break the bow of Israell in the valley of Iesrael.
      She conceived again, and bare a daughter. And he said unto him: Call her name Loruhamah ( that is, not obtaining mercy ) for I will not pity the house of Israell, but forget them, and put them clean out of remembrance. Nevertheless I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them even through the Lord their God. But I will not deliver them through any bow, sword, battle, horses, or horsemen.
      Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son. Then said he: call his name *Loamy. for why? ye are not my people, therefore I will not be yours. And though the number of the children of Israell be as the sand of the sea, which neither be measured nor told: yet in the place where it is said unto them, Ye be not my people: even there shall it be thus reported of them: they be the children of the living God. Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together again, and chose themselves one head, and then depart out of the land: for great shall be the day of Israel.

*Loamy *(not my people: Heb)
