"My people" is an expression used in the O.T. exclusively of Israel the nation. It is never used of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Matthew 2:6.
"Israel" in Hosea means the ten tribes forming the northern kingdom as distinguished from "Judah" (the tribes of Judah and Benjamin) forming the southern kingdom which adhered to the Davidic family. (See) 1 Kings 12:1-21. The promise of verse 10 awaits fulfilment. See "Israel" ; Genesis 12:2; Genesis 12:3; Romans 11:26.
