Hosea 1‑14
The abandonment and restoration of Israel and Judah.
Jehovah’s adulterous wife put away, then ultimately to be restored.
From chapter 4 most earnest dealing with the conscience of sinful Israel, warning Israel of coming judgment by the Assyrian, and Judah by the Chaldean, closing with their return in repentance to the gracious blessings of Jehovah. Hosea is the testimony of the ways of the Lord.
B.C. 785-725, 60 years.
