    VERSE (8) -
    1Sa 1:22

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:8

    ¶ Y después de haber destetado a Lo-ruhama, concibió y dio a luz un hijo.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Now when she had weaned Loruhamah , etc.] That is, when
    Gomer had weaned her daughter of this name, ( Hosea 1:6). This some interpret of the people of Israel being deprived of the word and ordinances, compared to milk and breasts, having a famine of them; and so were like children weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts; though others think this is expressive of the patience of God in bearing with this people, after he had before threatened them with the subversion of their kingdom and state; and even after the prophecy had took place in part, in causing the kingdom to cease in the house of Jehu, he bore with them about forty years before they were entirely carried captive; suckling and weaning, before the conception and birth of another child, denoting some stop and stay; but rather this intends the taking away some part of the land of Israel, as a child when weaning is taken away from its mother; and may respect the carrying captive many of the Israelites in divers parts, particularly out of Gilead, Galilee, and Naphtali, by Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, ( Kings 15:29). This cannot be understood of the captivity of the Jews in Babylon, as Cocceius; for this is a resumption and continuation of the prophecy concerning the ten tribes, after inserting a promise of the salvation of Judah, in the preceding verse: she conceived and bare a son : according to Kimchi, as the weaning of Loruhamah points at the times of weakness, from Zachariah the son of Jeroboam to the times of Pekahiah, when the reigns were short and troublesome; so this son conceived and born represents the state of the nation in the times of Pekah; who reigned twenty years, and was too powerful for the kingdom of Judah, slew multitudes of them, and carried others captive, and assisted Rezin king of Syria against Ahaz king of Judah: but, according to the series of the prophecy, it seems best to agree with the times of Hoshea king of Israel, who was not so bad as some of his predecessors; was a man of spirit and courage; cast off the Assyrian yoke, and neglected to give presents to the king of Assyria; and Samaria in his time held out a three years’ siege against that king, ( 2 Kings 17:1-5).

    The Targum is, “and the generation of them who are carried captive among the nations are found not to have obtained mercy by their works, but they added and did evil works.”

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Under a figure, is represented the shameful idolatry of the ten tribes (Hos. 1:1-7) The calling of the Gentiles, and the uniting Israel an Judah under the Messiah. (Hos. 1:8-11)

    Hos. 1:1-7 Israel was prosperous, yet then Hosea boldly tells them of their sins, and foretells their destruction. Men are not to be flattered in sinful ways because they prosper in the world; nor will it last long if they go on still in their trespasses. The prophet mus show Israel their sin; show it to be exceedingly hateful. Their idolatry is the sin they are here charged with. Giving that glory to any creature which is due to God alone, is an injury and affront to God; such as for a wife to take a stranger, is to her husband. The Lord, doubtless, had good reasons for giving such a command to the prophet; it would form an affecting picture of the Lord's unmerite goodness and unwearied patience, and of the perverseness an ingratitude of Israel. We should be broken and wearied with half tha perverseness from others, with which we try the patience and grieve the Spirit of our God. Let us also be ready to bear any cross the Lor appoints. The prophet must show the ruin of the people, in the name given to his children. He foretells the fall of the royal family in the name of his first child: call his name Jezreel, which signifie "dispersion." He foretells God's abandoning the nation in the name of the second child; Lo-ruhamah, "not beloved," or "not having obtaine mercy." God showed great mercy, but Israel abused his favours. Sin turns away the mercy of God, even from Israel, his own professin people. If pardoning mercy is denied, no other mercy can be expected Though some, through unbelief, are broken off, yet God will have church in this world till the end of time. Our salvation is owing to God's mercy, not to any merit of our own. That salvation is sure, of which he is the Author; and if he will work, none shall hinder.

    Hos. 1:8-11 The rejection of Israel for a time, is signified by the name of another child: call him Lo-ammi, "not my people." The Lor disowns all relation to them. We love him, because he first loved us but our being cast out of covenant, is owing to ourselves and ou folly. Mercy is remembered in the midst of wrath; the rejection, as it shall not be total, so it shall not be final. The same hand tha wounded, is stretched forth to heal. Very precious promises are her given concerning the Israel of God, and they may be of use to us now Some think that these promises will not have accomplishment in full till the general conversion of the Jews in the latter days. Also thi promise is applied to the gospel, and the bringing in both the Jews an Gentiles to it, by St. Paul, Rom. 9:25,26, and by St. Peter, I Pet 2:10. To believe in Christ, is to have him for our Head, and willingl to commit ourselves to his guidance and government. And let us pray for the coming of the glorious day, when there shall be one Lord throug all the earth __________________________________________________________________
