HOSEA 

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.
