Hosea there's one rather important subject matter or photo in Hosea, in particular if you happen to examine it psychologically. that is the picture of Yahweh's relation to Israel as a coniunctio, as a wedding. in keeping with this i might draw your recognition to a paper via Rivkah Kluger, "The photograph of the wedding among God and Israel within the previous testomony. " in fact, this is not the 1st time we now have encountered this picture, yet one way or the other it takes on an explicitness in Hosea. The untrue spouse the assumption was once that once Yahweh made his covenant with Israel, he married her, and Israel turned his spouse. yet she was once untrue to her marriage covenant; she turned a whore. And worse but, as elaborated in Hosea, the dowry given to her by means of her husband, Yahweh, used to be the very fabric she used to draw different fans. this can be acknowledged explicitly in Ezekiel, the place Yahweh says, you might have taken my offers of gold and silver jewellery and made your self human photos to exploit on your whorings . . . The bread I gave you, the best flower, oil and honey which I used to feed you, you may have now provided to them [the different fanatics] as an appeasing body spray [to the opposite gods]. (16:17-19) good, now this comes up in Hosea in those phrases: Denounce your mother, denounce her, for she is not my wife nor am I her husband. Let her rid her face of her whoring and her breasts of her adultery, or else I will strip her naked, expose her as on the day she was born; I will make a wilderness of her, turn her into an arid land, and leave her to die of thirst. I will not love her children, web page one hundred fifteen since they are the children of whoring. Yes, their mother has played the whore, she who conceived them has disgraced herself. "I am going to court my lovers," she said "who give me my bread and water, my wool, my flax, my oil and my drink. " She would not acknowledge, not she, that I was the one who was giving her the corn, the wine, the oil, and who freely gave her that silver and gold of which they have made Baals. . . . I mean to make her pay for all the days when she burned offerings to the Baals and decked herself with rings and necklaces to court her lovers, forgetting me. It is Yahweh who is speaking. (2:4-15) that's totally particular marriage symbolism, and as you recognize, it really is duplicated in Christian imagery with the concept the Church is the bride of Christ. we'd additionally make the remark that like Israel, the Church has additionally performed the harlot and used Christ's dowery for adulterous reasons. And as Yahweh grew to become opposed to Israel, so God has deserted his Church presently. i might say a manifestation of this is often Jung's adolescence imaginative and prescient of God shitting at the roof of Basel Cathedral. 50 that could be a superb picture of abandonment. yet to come back to the former element. Israel helps her adulteries with the presents of her husband Yahweh. Now what could that suggest psychologically? it could actually suggest that the ego takes the presents of the Self and makes use of them for secular or idolatrous reasons. by some means the transpersonal power is misapplied for private ends. definitely, this is often virtually an inevitable point of ego improvement.
