"Hosea's exploitation of metaphor is masterful, though the Hebrew technique of using the same metaphor, in the same context, to make different and sometimes unrelated points is unfamiliar to us, and to our minds often confuses more than it clarifies.

But like most literary conventions it makes sense once one realizes what the writer is doing." F7. Jeremiah used graphic sexual metaphors to depict Israel’s infidelity (Jer.33;12, 20; ; ).

These metaphors were designed to shock Jeremiah’s hearer and to bring home to his audience the depth of Israel’s unfaithfulness. To describe Israel’s relationship with Yahweh, Jeremiah used the water metaphor. The immediate purpose of Hosea's message is to illustrate the character of God's love.

The message of Hosea is provocative. For this very reason, the biblical book of Hosea has frustrated and intrigued scholars for over two millennia.This metaphor plays off the relationship that Yahweh and Israel have, as Israel is compared to Gomer, Hosea’s unfaithful wife.

Just as in marriages of the time, Yahweh, representing the male, is clearly the more dominant figure in the relationship who must face disloyalty from his feminine partner, Israel. The use of this metaphor is that Yahweh loves Israel, despite her worshiping of other.
