Wesley's Notes for Hosea 1:6


1:6 Lo - ruhamah - Not pitied. Israel's name had been through many ages Ruhamah, that is, pitied. God had pitied them, and saved them from their enemies. But now Israel should be no more pitied, God would throw them up to the rage of usurpers, and conspirators.

    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
