Hebrew - Hoshea
Hoshea -

Salvation.

  • The original name of the son of Nun, afterwards called Joshua (Numbers 13:8,16; Deuteronomy 32:44).

  • 1 Chronicles 27:20. The ruler of Ephraim in David's time.

  • The last king of Israel. He conspired against and slew his predecessor, Pekah (Isaiah 7:16), but did not ascend the throne till after an interregnum of warfare of eight years (2 Kings 17:1,2). Soon after this he submitted to Shalmaneser, the Assyrian king, who a second time invaded the land to punish Hoshea, because of his withholding tribute which he had promised to pay. A second revolt brought back the Assyrian king Sargon, who besieged Samaria, and carried the ten tribes away beyond the Euphrates, B.C. 720 (2 Kings 17:5,6; 18:9-12). No more is heard of Hoshea. He disappeared like "foam upon the water" (Hosea 10:7; 13:11).
