The title tells us more judgement against Israel is coming. Not sure how that is possible after the last chapter, but here we go. 🙂
“The rebels are knee-deep in slaughter. I will discipline all of them.” – Hosea 5:2
More blood spilled. What a surprise.
“They are unfaithful to the Lord; they give birth to illegitimate children.” – Hosea 5:7
Let’s punish children more by calling them illegitimate. Is it illegitimate to bear a child with your God approved 50th wife?
“Then I will return to my lair until they have borne their guilt and seek my face—in their misery they will earnestly seek me.” – Hosea 5:15
God’s plan is to make the people so miserable they have to crawl back to him. Here’s a thought…try LOVING your people.
Wow, God is an asshole and this chapter proves it once again. God’s goal is to punish people into submission. To make their lives so miserable they have no choice but to submit their will to him. Satan is far more just than God.
Coming Soon: Hosea – Chapter 6: Israel Unrepentant
