THE LETTER G - bible females
GOMER: (Hebrew= )
Meaning: complete; vanishing
The name of one biblical woman and one man…
The daughter of Diblaim, who (probably in vision only) became the wife of Hosea (Hosea 1:3). If he did marry her, there is no proper evidence she was a prostitute. God in effect says "This land is full of spiritual whoredom, go and marry one of those spiritual whores." This is a big and important controversy in the study of OT marriage and divorce, and taking the subject lightly is a big mistake. This name and subject are important!
