Hosea – Chapter 7
by in
When G-d wants to heal Israel, the sins of the northern kingdom are constantly rubbed in His face (metaphorically speaking). They lie, steal and spread evil. They don’t act as if G-d will remember their deeds. Their king doesn’t mind their lawlessness, since they pay him off with a “piece of the action.” They are […]
Hosea – Chapter 6
by in
Hoshea says, “Let us return to G-d. He has wounded us and He will heal us. He will refresh us from the two Temples that were destroyed and will establish the third so that we may live before Him. Let’s all agree to know G-d as surely as we know that the sun will rise […]
Hosea – Chapter 5
by in
Now, Hoshea addresses the priests of Judah, although there is a difference of opinion as to whether he is speaking to the kohanim of the Temple or the idolatrous priests. The priests, the people and even the king will have to pay for their role in the current sad state of affairs; they are a […]
Hosea – Chapter 4
by in
Hoshea told the Jews to listen to G-d because He has some issues with them. There is no truth, kindness or knowledge of G-d among them. There is only deceit, corruption, murder, theft and adultery. The people have no limits. The land will therefore be destroyed and all the creatures that live there will be […]
Hosea – Chapter 3

G-d told Hoshea to marry a second woman, in addition to the first wife. This woman will be beloved, but she’ll have a history of adultery. This is like the situation with G-d and Israel; He loves them, but they have a history of infidelity. Hoshea betrothed this woman (or G-d betrothed Israel) with a […]
Hosea – Chapter 2

G-d told Hoshea that the Jews would be as numerous as the sands of the sea and instead of “not My nation,” they will be called “the children of the living G-d.” In the Messianic era, both the dispersed of Judah and the “lost” ten tribes will be gathered together in Israel under one ruler […]
Hosea – Chapter 1
by in
G-d spoke to Hoshea, the son of Beiri. He lived during the reigns of Uziah, Yosam, Achaz and Hezekiah in Judah; Yeravam the son of Yoash (Jeroboam II) was the concurrent king in Israel. At the beginning of his prophecy, G-d told Hoshea to marry a prostitute and have children with her, the result being […]
Ezekiel – Chapter 48

The new portions of the Tribes are then described, from Dan in the north, to Asher, then Naftali, Menashe, Ephraim and Reuben. Then came the territory of Judah, with the Temple in its midst, including the land set aside around the Temple in chapter 45. (The land in this portion designated for Kohanim – priests […]
Ezekiel – Chapter 47

The angel returned Ezekiel to the inner courtyard, where he saw water flowing from under the door in the east towards the south, and from there to the city. He exited by the northern gate, went around to the outer gate facing east, and the water contined to the south. The angel (who still had […]
Ezekiel – Chapter 46

G-d said that the eastern gate of the inner courtyard would remain closed on regular weekdays, but be opened on Sabbath and Rosh Chodesh (“New Moon”). The ruler would enter through the hall of the outer gate and stand by the doorway while the kohein (priest) offers his sacrifices. He will bow and exit, but […]
