1 The word of the Lord which came to Osee the son of Beeri, in the days of Ozias, and Joatham, and Achaz, and Ezekias, kings of Juda, and in the days of Jeroboam son of Joas, king of Israel. 2 The beginning of the word of the Lord by Osee. And the Lord said to Osee, Go, take to thyself a wife of fornication, and children of fornication: for the land will surely go a-whoring in departing from the Lord. 3 So he went and took Gomer, daughter of Debelaim; and he conceived, and bore him a son. 4 And the Lord said to him, Call his name Jezrael; for yet a little [while], and I will avenge the blood of Jezrael on the house of Juda, and will make to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel. 5 And it shall be, in that day, [that] I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezrael. 6 And she conceived again, and bore a daughter. And he said to him, Call her name, Unpitied: for I will no more have mercy on the house of Israel, but will surely set myself in array against them. 7 But I will have mercy on the house of Juda, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them with bow, nor with sword, nor by war, nor by horses, nor by horsemen. 8 And she weaned Unpitied; and she conceived again, and bore a son. 9 And he said, Call his name, Not my people: for ye are not my people, and I am not your [God].
ΛΟΓΟΣ Κυρίου, ὃς ἐγενήθη πρὸς ῾Ωσηὲ τὸν τοῦ Βεηρεὶ ἐν ἡμέραις ᾿Οζίου καὶ ᾿Ιωάθαμ καὶ ῎Αχαζ καὶ ᾿Εζεκίου βασιλέων ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐν ἡμέραις ῾Ιεροβοὰμ υἱοῦ ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλέως ᾿Ισραήλ.
2 ᾿Αρχὴ λόγου Κυρίου εἰς ῾Ωσηέ. καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς ῾Ωσηέ· βάδιζε, λαβὲ σεαυτῷ γυναῖκα πορνείας καὶ τέκνα πορνείας, διότι ἐκπορνεύουσα ἐκπορνεύσει ἡ γῆ ἀπὸ ὄπισθεν τοῦ Κυρίου. 3 καὶ ἐπορεύθη καί ἔλαβε τὴν Γόμερ θυγατέρα Δεβηλαΐμ, καὶ συνέλαβε καὶ ἔτεκεν αὐτῷ υἱόν. 4 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς αὐτόν· κάλεσον τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιεζραέλ, διότι ἔτι μικρὸν καὶ ἐκδικήσω τὸ αἷμα τοῦ ᾿Ιεζραὲλ ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον ᾿Ιούδα καὶ καταπαύσω βασιλείαν οἴκου ᾿Ισραήλ. 5 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ συντρίψω τὸ τόξον τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν κοιλάδι τοῦ ᾿Ιεζραέλ. 6 καὶ συνέλαβεν ἔτι καὶ ἔτεκε θυγατέρα, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· κάλεσον τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῆς, Οὐκ-ἠλεημένη, διότι οὐ μὴ προσθήσω ἔτι ἐλεῆσαι τὸν οἶκον ᾿Ισραήλ, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ ἀντιτασσόμενος ἀντιτάξομαι αὐτοῖς. 7 τοὺς δὲ υἱοὺς ᾿Ιούδα ἐλεήσω καὶ σώσω αὐτοὺς ἐν Κυρίῳ Θεῷ αὐτῶν καὶ οὐ σώσω αὐτοὺς ἐν τόξῳ οὐδὲ ἐν ρομφαίᾳ οὐδὲ ἐν πολέμῳ οὐδὲ ἐν ἵπποις οὐδὲ ἐν ἱππεῦσι. 8 καὶ ἀπεγαλάκτισε τὴν Οὐκ-ἠλεημένην, καὶ συνέλαβεν ἔτι καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱόν. 9 καὶ εἶπε· κάλεσον τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Οὐ-λαός-μου, διότι ὑμεῖς οὐ λαός μου, καὶ ἐγώ οὐκ εἰμὶ ὑμῶν.
