Hosea wrote this book to remind the Israelites that ours is a loving God whose loyalty to His covenant people is unwavering.

In spite of Israel's continual turning to false gods, God's steadfast love is portrayed in the long-suffering husband of the unfaithful wife.

Hosea's message is also one of warning to those who would turn their backs on God's love. Through the symbolic presentation of the marriage of Hosea and Gomer, God's love for the idolatrous nation of Israel is displayed in a rich metaphor in the themes of sin, judgment, and forgiving love.

Hosea   |   Chapter: 5   |   Verses: 15
Chapter:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
And the revolters are profound to make slaughter, though I have been a rebuker of them all.
1 of 15
I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me: for now, O Ephraim, thou committest whoredom, and Israel is defiled.
2 of 15
They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD.
3 of 15
And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them.
4 of 15
They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.
5 of 15
They have dealt treacherously against the LORD: for they have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them with their portions.
6 of 15
Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah: cry aloud at Bethaven, after thee, O Benjamin.
7 of 15
Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.
8 of 15
The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: therefore I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.
9 of 15
Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment, because he willingly walked after the commandment.
10 of 15
Therefore will I be unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.
11 of 15
When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.
12 of 15
For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.
13 of 15
I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
