The Book of Hosea of the Christian Holy Bible

Hosea 1:1 The word of the LORD that came unto 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. 

Hosea 1:2 The beginning of the  word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea,  Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of  whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom,  departing from the LORD. 

Hosea 1:3 So he went and took  Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare  him a son. 

Hosea 1:4 And the LORD said unto him, Call his  name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the  blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to  cease the kingdom of the house of Israel. 

Hosea 1:5 And it shall  come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel  in the valley of Jezreel.  
Hosea 1:6 And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And  God said unto him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah: for I will  no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will  utterly take them away. 
Hosea 1:7 But I will have mercy upon  the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their  God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by  battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.  
Hosea 1:8 Now when she had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she  conceived, and bare a son. 
Hosea 1:9 Then said God, Call his  name Lo-ammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be  your God.  
Hosea 1:10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be  as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor  numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place  where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there  it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living  God.

Hosea 9:5 What will ye do in the solemn day, and in the  day of the feast of the LORD?

Hosea 9:7 The days of visitation are come, the days  of recompence are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet  is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of  thine iniquity, and the great hatred. 
Hosea 9:8 The watchman of  Ephraim was with my God: but the prophet is a snare  of a fowler in all his ways, and hatred in the house of his  God. 
Hosea 9:9 They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in  the days of Gibeah: therefore he will remember their  iniquity, he will visit their sins.

Hosea 10:1 Israel is an empty vine, he bringeth forth fruit  unto himself: according to the multitude of his fruit he hath  increased the altars; according to the goodness of his land  they have made goodly images. 
Hosea 10:2 Their heart is  divided; now shall they be found faulty: he shall break  down their altars, he shall spoil their images. 
Hosea 10:3 For  now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared not  the LORD; what then should a king do to us? 
Hosea 10:4 They  have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a covenant:  thus judgment springeth up as hemlock in the furrows of the  field.
