Hosea 1:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

The Prophet Hosea

The Lord spoke his word to Hosea, son of Beeri, when Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah were kings of Judah and when Jeroboam, son of Joash, was king of Israel.

Hosea Marries a Prostitute

When the Lord first spoke to Hosea, the Lord told him, “Marry a prostitute and have children with that prostitute. The people in this land have acted like prostitutes and abandoned the Lord.” So Hosea married Gomer, daughter of Diblaim. She became pregnant and had a son.
