        Lo Ammi = not My people. Jezreel, Lo-ruhamah (= not loved), and Loammi are the three children of the prophet Hosea’s wife, Gomer, taken
        by God’s command. "Jezreel" symbolised the coming destruction of Jehu’s line, as Jehu had destroyed that of Ahab of Jezreel; also that as
        Jezreel means both God sows and God scatters, so God will yet sow Israel whom He now scatters (Hosea 1:4-6,9,10,11), "great shall be the
        day of Jezreel," i.e. great shall be the day when they shall be God’s seed planted in their own land by God (Jeremiah 24:6; 31:28; 32:41;
        Amos 9:15; Hosea 2:23). "I will sow her (Jezreel, the sown one, Hosea 2:22) unto ... Me in the earth." Not only Judaea, but the whole
        earth shall be the seed plot wherein Gentile nations shall be the spiritual growth of the Jewish seed sown everywhere (Micah 5:7; Romans
        11:12,15; Zechariah 10:9). Loruhamah, changed into Ruhama, means that He will first withdraw His "loving mercy" and at last restore it.
        And Loammi, changed into Ammi, that He will make Israel, now "not His people" owing to apostasy, to become again "His people." The three
        children symbolize successive generations: Jezreel (1) represents the dynasty of Jeroboam I, ending with Jehu’s shedding the blood of the
        last of the line at Jezreel; Lo-ruhamah (2), a daughter, represents the effeminate period which followed; Lo-ammi, a son, represents
        Jeroboam II’s vigorous dynasty, which however brought no revival of religion; still Israel was not God’s people really, and so should be
        no longer so in name but cast away.
