Absque misericordia, and as it is rendered in the Auth.Vers., Ho 2:23, "not obtained mercy"), the name divinely appointed for the first daughter of the prophet Hosea by the formerly dissolute Gomer, a type of Jehovah's temporary rejection of his people by the Babylonian captivity in consequence of their idolatry (Ho 1:6; Ho 2:23; comp. 2:1).
