Hosea refers to traditions of the past in which the interdependence between Yahweh and Israel, and in particular Yahwehs care for his people, are recurrent themes. The prophet can presuppose that certain portions of these traditions, both historical and theological, are known to his audience, but it is his claim that what is not known to Israel is the demand that is inherent in Yahwehs past dealings with his people, the demand for exclusive worship of Yahweh.

In his historical retrospections, Hosea enphasizes time after time that Israel has been chosen, not for a life of passive retreat, but to serve Israels God alone. This he proclaims as the true knowledge of God.
