And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And (Jehovah) said unto him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah; for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel, that I should in any wise pardon them.
And (Jehovah) said, Call his name Lo-ammi; for ye are not my people, and I will not be your (God).
Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass that, in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, it shall be said unto them, (Ye are) the sons of the living God.
As he saith also in Hosea, I will call that my people, which was not my people; And her beloved, that was not beloved.
