Wesley's Notes for Hosea 1:5


1:5 At that day - When my vengeance hath overtaken the house of Jehu. Break - Weaken and by degrees quite break. The bow - All their warlike provision, power and skill. Jezreel - In this valley it is probable the bloodiest battles in the civil wars were fought; the reason whereof might be, because whoever carried the victory in this place, were soon masters of Samaria and Jezreel, and consequently of the kingdom.

    God being so merciful as he is he can make whores into house wifed, bc Hosea had to trust the almighty God bc he took a whore as his wife. God can do anything bc he loves all hid people and he can use anybody and do all things. What a mighty God we serve.Amen
  • Anne
    Hosea is obedient to God and God uses his life to prophesy to the children of Israel and to demonstrate His forgiveness and love toward them.
  • Carolyn Taylor
    Hosea shows the love a husband should have for his wife and the love a wife should have for her husband. The forgiving heart and loving spirit. If we all have these two attributes in ALL marriages, we will have less divorces, especially in the church.
  • Camiah
    Hosea were really really nice with his wife and that was pleasing
