||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.
||And he went out and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; and she conceived and bore him a son.
||And the Lord said to him: “Call his name Jezreel because, after a little while, I will visit the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and I will put the kingdom of the house of Israel to rest.
||And in that day, I will crush the stronghold of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.”
||And she weaned her, who was called Without Mercy. And she conceived and bore a son.
||And he said: “Call his name, Not My People, for you are not my people, and I will not be yours.
