Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hosea 1:9

_ _ Lo-Ammi — once “My people,” but henceforth not so (Ezekiel 16:8). The intervals between the marriage and the successive births of the three children, imply that three successive generations are intended. Jezreel, the first child, represents the dynasty of Jeroboam I and his successors, ending with Jehu’s shedding the blood of Jeroboam’s line in Jezreel; it was there that Jezebel was slain, in vengeance for Naboth’s blood shed in the same Jezreel (1 Kings 16:1; 2 Kings 9:21, 2 Kings 9:30). The scenes of Jezreel were to be enacted over again on Jehu’s degenerate race. At Jezreel Assyria routed Israel [Jerome]. The child’s name associates past sins, intermediate punishments, and final overthrow. Lo-ruhamah (“not pitied”), the second child, is a daughter, representing the effeminate period which followed the overthrow of the first dynasty, when Israel was at once abject and impious. Lo-Ammi (“not my people”), the third child, a son, represents the vigorous dynasty (2 Kings 14:25) of Jeroboam II; but, as prosperity did not bring with it revived piety, they were still not God’s people.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hosea 1:9

Loammi — That is, not my people. Tho' once you were a peculiar people, you are so no more; you are cast off as you deserved. I will not be your God — I will be a God to you, no more than to any of the Heathen nations. This God executed when he gave them up into the hands of Salmaneser, who sent them where none now can find them.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
