Yahweh is your God (Hos 13:4-13:5)

“I am Yahweh!

Your God!

I have been

Your God

Ever since the land of Egypt.

You know no God

But me!

Besides me,

There is no savior!

It was I

Who fed you

In the wilderness,

In the land

Of drought.”

Yahweh, via Hosea, was clear. He left no doubt that he was the God of Israel, since he had brought them out of the land of Egypt. They did not know any other God except him, since he alone was their savior. He fed them and brought them out of the drought stricken wilderness.
