Chapter 1:11 Verses
28-1:1 The worde of the Lorde that came vnto Hosea the sonne of Beeri, in the daies of Vzziah, Iotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah Kings of Iudah, and in the daies of Ieroboam the sonne of Ioash king of Israel.
28-1:2 At the beginning the Lorde spake by Hosea, and the Lord said vnto Hosea, Goe, take vnto thee a wife of fornicatios, and children of fornications: for the lande hath committed great whoredome, departing from the Lord.
28-1:3 So he went, & tooke Gomer, ye daughter of Diblaim, which conceiued & bare him a sonne.
28-1:4 And the Lord said vnto him, Cal his name Izreel: for yet a litle, and I will visite the blood of Izreel vpon the house of Iehu, and will cause to cease the kingdome of the house of Israel.
28-1:5 And at that day will I also breake the bowe of Israel in the valley of Izreel.
28-1:6 She conceiued yet againe, & bare a daughter, and God saide vnto him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah: for I will no more haue pitie vpon the house of Israel: but I wil vtterly take them away.
28-1:7 Yet I will haue mercie vpon the house of Iudah, and wil saue them by the Lord their God, and wil not saue them by bow, nor by sword nor by battell, by horses, nor by horsemen.
28-1:8 Nowe when she had wained Lo-ruhamah, shee conceiued, and bare a sonne.
28-1:9 Then saide God, Call his name Lo-ammi: for yee are not my people: therefore will I not be yours.
28-1:10 Yet the nomber of the children of Israel shall be as the sande of the sea, which can not be measured nor tolde: and in the place where it was saide vnto them, Yee are not my people, it shall be saide vnto them, Yee are the sonnes of the liuing God.
28-1:11 Then shall the children of Iudah, and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint them selues one head, & they shal come vp out of the land: for great is the day of Izreel.
Chapter 2:23 Verses
28-2:1 Say vnto your brethren, Ammi, and to your sisters, Ruhamah,
28-2:2 Plead with your mother: plead with her: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: but let her take away her fornications out of her sight, & her adulteries from betweene her breasts.
28-2:3 Lest I strippe her naked, and set her as in the day that shee was borne, and make her as a wildernes, and leaue her like a drie land, and slaie her for thirst.
28-2:4 And I wil haue no pitie vpon her children: for they be the children of fornications.
28-2:5 For their mother hath plaied the harlot: she that conceiued them, hath done shamefully: for shee said, I will goe after my louers that giue me my bread and my water, my wooll and my flaxe, mine oyle and my drinke.
28-2:6 Therefore beholde, I will stoope thy way with thornes, and make an hedge, that shee shall not finde her pathes.
28-2:7 Though shee followe after her louers, yet shall shee not come at them: though shee seeke them, yet shall shee not finde them: then shall she say, I will goe and returne to my first husbande: for at that time was I better then nowe.
28-2:8 Nowe she did not knowe that I gaue her corne, and wine, and oyle, and multiplied her siluer and golde, which they bestowed vpon Baal.
28-2:9 Therefore wil I returne, and take away my corne in the time thereof, and my wine in the season thereof, and will recouer my wool and my flaxe lent, to couer her shame.
28-2:10 And now will I discouer her lewdnes in the sight of her louers, and no man shall deliuer her out of mine hand.
28-2:11 I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast daies, her newe moones, and her Sabbathes, and all her solemne feasts.
28-2:12 And I wil destroy her vines & her figtrees, whereof she hath said, These are my rewards that my louers haue giuen mee: and I will make them as a forest, and the wilde beasts shall eate them.
28-2:13 And I wil visit vpon her the daies of Baalim, wherein shee burnt incense to them: and shee decked her selfe with her earings and her iewels, and shee folowed her louers, and forgate me, saith the Lorde.
28-2:14 Therefore beholde, I will allure her, and bring her into the wildernesse, and speake friendly vnto her.
28-2:15 And I will giue her her vineyardes from thence, and the valley of Achor for the doore of hope, and shee shall sing there as in the daies of her youth, and as in the daies when shee came vp out of the land of Egypt.
28-2:16 And at that day, sayeth the Lord, thou shalt call me Ishi, and shalt call me no more Baali.
28-2:17 For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall be no more remembred by their names.
28-2:18 And in that day wil I make a couenant for them, with the wilde beasts, and with the foules of the heauen, and with that that creepeth vpon the earth: and I will breake the bowe, and the sworde and the battell out of the earth, and will make them to sleepe safely.
28-2:19 And I wil marry thee vnto me for euer: yea, I will marry thee vnto me in righteousnes, and in iudgement, and in mercy and in compassion.
28-2:20 I will euen marry thee vnto me in faithfulnes, and thou shalt knowe the Lord.
28-2:21 And in that day I wil heare, saith the Lord, I will euen heare the heauens, and they shall heare the earth,
28-2:22 And the earth shall heare the corne, & the wine, and the oyle, and they shall heare Izreel.
28-2:23 And I will sowe her vnto me in the earth, and I will haue mercie vpon her, that was not pitied, and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; they shal say, Thou art my God.
Chapter 3:5 Verses
28-3:1 Then said the Lord to me, Goe yet, and loue a woman (beloued of her husbande, and was an harlot) according to the loue of the Lorde toward the children of Israel: yet they looked to other gods, and loued the wine bottels.
28-3:2 So I bought her to me for fifteene pieces of siluer, and for an homer of barlie and an halfe homer of barlie.
28-3:3 And I said vnto her, Thou shalt abide with me many dayes: thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt be to none other man, and I will be so vnto thee.
28-3:4 For the children of Israel shall remaine many dayes without a King & without a prince, and without an offering, and without an image, and without an Ephod and without Teraphim.
28-3:5 Afterward shall the children of Israel conuert, and seeke the Lorde their God, and Dauid their King, and shall feare the Lord, and his goodnes in the latter dayes.
Chapter 4:19 Verses
28-4:1 Heare the worde of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controuersie with the inhabitants of the lande, because there is no trueth nor mercie nor knowledge of God in the lande.
28-4:2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and whoring they breake out, and blood toucheth blood.
28-4:3 Therefore shall the land mourne, and euery one that dwelleth therein, shall be cut off, with the beasts of the fielde, and with the foules of the heauen, and also the fishes of the sea shall be taken away.
28-4:4 Yet let none rebuke, nor reproue another: for thy people are as they that rebuke the Priest.
28-4:5 Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the Prophet shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.
28-4:6 My people are destroyed for lacke of knowledge: because thou hast refused knowledge, I will also refuse thee, that thou shalt be no Priest to me: and seeing thou hast forgotten the Lawe of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
28-4:7 As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I chaunge their glorie into shame.
28-4:8 They eate vp the sinnes of my people, and lift vp their mindes in their iniquitie.
28-4:9 And there shalbe like people, like Priest: for I wil visite their wayes vpon them, and reward them their deedes.

28-4:11 Whoredome, and wine, and newe wine take away their heart.
28-4:12 My people aske counsell at their stockes, and their staffe teacheth them: for the spirite of fornications hath caused them to erre, and they haue gone a whoring from vnder their God.
28-4:13 They sacrifice vpon the toppes of ye mountaines, and burne incense vpon the hilles vnder the okes, and the poplar tree, and the elme, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall be harlots, and your spouses shall be whores.
28-4:14 I will not visite your daughters when they are harlots: nor your spouses when they are whores: for they themselues are separated with harlots, and sacrifice with whores: therefore the people that doeth not vnderstand, shall fall.
28-4:15 Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Iudah sinne: come not ye vnto Gilgal, neither goe ye vp to Beth-auen, nor sweare, The Lord liueth.
28-4:16 For Israel is rebellious as an vnruly heyfer. Nowe the Lord will feede them as a lambe in a large place.
28-4:17 Ephraim is ioyned to idoles: let him alone.
28-4:18 Their drunkennes stinketh: they haue committed whoredome: their rulers loue to say with shame, Bring ye.
28-4:19 The winde hath bounde them vp in her wings, and they shalbe ashamed of their sacrifices.

28-5:3 I knowe Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me: for nowe, O Ephraim thou art become an harlot, and Israel is defiled.

28-5:8 Blowe ye the trumpet in Gibeah, and the shaume in Ramah: crie out at Beth-auen, after thee, O Beniamin.
28-5:9 Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel haue I caused to knowe the trueth.

Chapter 7:16 Verses
28-7:1 When I woulde haue healed Israel, then the iniquitie of Ephraim was discouered, and the wickednesse of Samaria: for they haue dealt falsly: and the theefe commeth in, and the robber spoyleth without.

28-7:15 Though I haue boud & strengthened their arme, yet doe they imagine mischiefe against me.
28-7:16 They returne, but not to the most high: they are like a deceitfull bowe: their princes shall fall by the sword, for the rage of their tongues: this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.

28-9:7 The daies of visitation are come: the daies of recompence are come: Israel shall knowe it: the Prophet is a foole: the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquitie: therefore the hatred is great.
