Minor Prophets: Gomer Leaves Hosea

For Gomer this felt like total deprivation, and yet it was the very best thing for her, as Hosea wooed her back to himself.

Minor Prophets: Hosea Marries Gomer

“Go, marry a promiscuous woman and have children with her, for like an adulterous wife this land is guilty of unfaithfulness to the Lord.”

So Hosea married Gomer daughter of Diblaim.
