Hosea’s Wife and Children
2 When the Lord first spoke by Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea: “Go, take for yourself a wife of harlotry and children of harlotry, for the land has committed great harlotry, departing from the Lord.” 3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim as a wife. She conceived, and bore him a son.
