Promises of God from Hosea

“I will show love to the house of Judah; and I will save them—not by bow, sword or battle, or by horses and horsemen, but by the Lord their God” (1:7).

“I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion.  I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord” (2:19-20).

“I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings” (6:6).

“I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love; I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down to feed them” (11:4).

“I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death.  Where, O death, are your plagues?  Where, O grave, is your destruction?” (13:14).
