Seldom were tough and testy terms revealed in the Bible without elucidation. In the Old Testament especially, God instructed believers to give children names that connoted God's perception of the people at the moment or his aspirations for them. For example, when the children of Israel fell out of God's favor, as they so often did, God told Hosea that his child should be called Lo-Ruhamah, because God decided to rescind the mercy he had once bestowed upon the people. Hosea and Gomer's daughter was a human reminder that the people needed to get their holy act together in order to fall back in God's good graces.
