Hos 1:3 So he went and took Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.
Acting out the role of obedient and suffering servant, Hosea gives us a taste of the obedience we would later see carried to the cross by the ultimate suffering servant, Christ. Although there is no specific significance to the name Gomer, she clearly represents unfaithful Israel in the immediate prophecy Hosea’s contemporaries. Her children represent the consequences of her sinful nature. Just as Hosea is a faithful husband to Gomer, so God points out, corrects, and overcomes the sin of His bride.
