Contemporary lessons from the marriage of Hosea

Contemporary Applications

Yahweh is associated with honor and Israel with shame. Their association brings shame to Yahweh (you should read this in their historical context, especially of shame and honor, else you miss the point). In many ways, they are like the two sides of a coin (or polar opposite). One party is ready for the association (covenant) despite the shame.
