Chapter 1 – Hosea’s family life
Chapter 2 – Divorce
Chapter 3 – Hosea seeks out Gomer and must buy her back.
Chapter 4 – Israel’s shallow repentance
Chapters 4-10 – Oracles revealing why God is rejecting the Northern Kingdom (grounds are for divorce).
Chapter 11 – God’s lament and promise.
Chapter 12 – Hosea’s plea to Israel
Chapter 13 – Destruction of Israel by Assyria, There has been no true repentance.
Chapter 14 – Hosea urges Israel to seek forgiveness and promises its restoration, urges the utmost fidelity to God.
The entirety of the Book of Hosea can best be described as a DRAMATIC CALL TO REPENTANCE.
