But Hosea reclaimed her. At the "flesh market" he paid the cheapest price to buy her back. It was his way of bringing her home and keeping her there. But what woman wants to be her husband's slave? It's enough to be a wife. Submission is always difficult; but slavery is unthinkable. God gave Hosea two holds upon her: the embrace of love and the bonds of legality. "It shall be of that day saith the Lord, that thou shalt call me Ishi (my husband) and shalt call me no more Baali (my master)" (Hosea 2:16).

But she did! She hoped for a higher way of life, but because she had no solid faith beneath her, she went nowhere. Like so many who struggle without a firm faith, they eventually give up. Hosea might have quit. He might have reacted like we sometimes do to shameful, painful circumstances, gotten mad and stopped fighting to save his family. But the prophet kept the faith. Although Gomer deserted him and the children, Hosea still held to the promise. He refused to give up, and he won. But not all by himself.

But while the rich reveled in riches, the poor became poorer until, as Amos, a contemporary of Hosea wrote, "the poor... they trade for a pair of shoes" (Amos 2:6). I doubt if the prophet, so disturbed by the moral sins of his generation, would have had the cash or the conscience for an extravagant celebration. Besides, where could they have it? A "church" wedding in Hosea's day would have been a mockery of sacred matrimony for Baal (meaning lord, husband) and the savage, sensual female, Anat, were the worshipped deities.
