  1. Hosea 1
    Hosea’s Unfaithful Wife

    1 The word of the Lord that came to Hosea the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.
    The Family of Hosea

    2 When the Lord began to speak by Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea:

    “Go, take yourself a wife of harlotry
    And children of harlotry,
    For the land has committed great [a]harlotry
    By departing from the Lord.”

    3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son. 4 Then the Lord said to him:

    “Call his name Jezreel,
    For in a little while
    I will avenge the bloodshed of Jezreel on the house of Jehu,
    And bring an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel.
    5
    It shall come to pass in that day
    That I will break the bow of Israel in the Valley of Jezreel.”

    6 And she conceived again and bore a daughter. Then God said to him:

    “Call her name [b]Lo-Ruhamah,
    For I will no longer have mercy on the house of Israel,
    [c]But I will utterly take them away.
    7
    Yet I will have mercy on the house of Judah,
    Will save them by the Lord their God,
    And will not save them by bow,
    Nor by sword or battle,
    By horses or horsemen.”

    8 Now when she had weaned Lo-Ruhamah, she conceived and bore a son. 9 Then God said:

    “Call his name [d]Lo-Ammi,
    For you are not My people,
    And I will not be your God.
    The Restoration of Israel

    10
    “Yet the number of the children of Israel
    Shall be as the sand of the sea,
    Which cannot be measured or numbered.
    And it shall come to pass
    In the place where it was said to them,
    ‘You are [e]not My people,’
    There it shall be said to them,
    ‘You are sons of the living God.’
    11
    Then the children of Judah and the children of Israel
    Shall be gathered together,
    And appoint for themselves one head;
    And they shall come up out of the land,
    For great will be the day of Jezreel!

  2. Judges 9
    Downfall of Abimelech

    22 After Abimelech had reigned over Israel three years, 23 God sent a spirit of ill will between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech, 24 that the crime done to the seventy sons of Jerubbaal might be settled and their blood be laid on Abimelech their brother, who killed them, and on the men of Shechem, who aided him in the killing of his brothers.
