INTRODUCTION:

I will begin my 'two houses of Israel' interpretation with the reign of King David.  This seems appropriate to me as it was the only time that all twelve (12) tribes were united under a righteous king.

After the death of King David, King Solomon occupied the throne of the kingdom of Israel.

33 'Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go.'  (KJV)

14 'For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the LORD of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel.'  (KJV)

This entire chapter needs to be annotated.

15 'The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,'  (KJV)

16 'Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:'  (KJV)

This verse seems to indicate that YHWH will take the children of the 10 lost tribes which were dispersed by the Assyrians and bring them back to the land of Israel/Yisr'ĕl.

22 'And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.'  (KJV)

23 'Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.'  (KJV)

26 'Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.'  (KJV)

27 'When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;'  (KJV)

YHWH is talking about the house of Israel/Yisr'ĕl in this passage and not the house of Judah/Yahudah.

28 'Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.'  (KJV)

29 'Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.'  (KJV)

  7 'And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock.'  (KJV)

  8 'Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.'  (KJV)

  9 'Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.'  (KJV)

10 'And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.'  (KJV)

11 'And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD.'  (KJV)

12 'And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.'  (KJV)

13 'And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.'  (KJV)

14 'Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.'  (KJV)

  1 'I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.'  (KJV)

  2 'God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,'  (KJV)

  3 'Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.'  (KJV)

  9 'And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:'  (KJV)

10 'Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.'  (KJV)

11 'I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.'  (KJV)

12 'Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?'  (KJV)

13 'For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:'  (KJV)

14 'If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.'  (KJV)

15 'For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?'  (KJV)

16 'For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.'  (KJV)

17 'And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;'  (KJV)

18 'Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.'  (KJV)

19 'Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.'  (KJV)

20 'Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:'  (KJV)

21 'For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.'  (KJV)

22 'Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.'  (KJV)

23 'And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.'  (KJV)

24 'For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?'  (KJV)

25 'For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.'  (KJV)

26 'And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:'  (KJV)
