New Defender's Study Bible Notes
1:6 Lo-ruhamah. Hosea’s first son by his “wife of whoredoms” was Jezreel, named after the bloody slaughter at Jezreel which had initiated the dynasty of Jehu, soon to be ended. His daughter then was named Lo-ruhamah, meaning “Not to be pitied,” symbolizing God’s imminent judgment on unfaithful Israel.
