Symbolical name of a son of Hosea, signifying 'not my people.' Hosea 1:9 . The same words occur in Hosea 1:10 and Hosea 2:23 , but are there translated. Because of the sin of Israel they for a time are ostensibly not God's people. God has not changed His purpose concerning His ancient people, Romans 11:29; He has only changed His manner toward them. Hosea 2:23 adds "I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God." This will be when God's set time arrives for bringing them again into blessing. The wording of Hosea 1:10 , quoted in Romans 9:26 , leaves room for the Gentiles as 'sons of the living God.'
