Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:1 - "Say to your brothers, 'My people!' And to your sisters, 'My loved one!'
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:2 - Contend with your mother! Contend, for she is not my wife, Neither am I her husband; And let her put away her prostitution from her face, And her adulteries from between her breasts;
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:3 - Lest I strip her naked, And make her bare as in the day that she was born, And make her like a wilderness, And set her like a dry land, And kill her with thirst.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:4 - Indeed, on her children I will have no mercy; For they are children of unfaithfulness;
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:5 - For their mother has played the prostitute. She who conceived them has done shamefully; For she said, 'I will go after my lovers, Who give me my bread and my water, My wool and my flax, My oil and my drink.'
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:6 - Therefore, behold, I will hedge up your way with thorns, And I will build a wall against her, That she can't find her way.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:7 - She will follow after her lovers, But she won't overtake them; And she will seek them, But won't find them. Then she will say, 'I will go and return to my first husband; For then was it better with me than now.'
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:8 - For she did not know that I gave her the grain, the new wine, and the oil, And multiplied to her silver and gold, which they used for Ba`al.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:9 - Therefore I will take back my grain in its time, And my new wine in its season, And will pluck away my wool and my flax which should have covered her nakedness.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:10 - Now I will uncover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, And no one will deliver her out of my hand.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:11 - I will also cause all her celebrations to cease: Her feasts, her new moons, her Shabbatot, and all her solemn assemblies.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:12 - I will lay waste her vines and her fig trees, About which she has said, 'These are my wages that my lovers have given me; And I will make them a forest,' And the animals of the field shall eat them.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:13 - I will visit on her the days of the Ba`alim, To which she burned incense, When she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, And went after her lovers, And forgot me," says the LORD.

Restoration of Israel

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:14 - "Therefore, behold, I will allure her, And bring her into the wilderness, And speak tenderly to her.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:15 - I will give her vineyards from there, And the valley of `Akhor for a door of hope; And she will respond there, As in the days of her youth, And as in the day when she came up out of the land of Mitzrayim.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:16 - It will be in that day," says the LORD, "That you will call me 'my husband,' And no longer call me 'my master.'
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:17 - For I will take away the names of the Ba`alim out of her mouth, And they will no more be mentioned by their name.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:18 - In that day I will make a covenant for them with the animals of the field, And with the birds of the sky, And with the creeping things of the ground. I will break the bow, the sword, and the battle out of the land, And will make them lie down safely.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:19 - I will betroth you to me forever. Yes, I will betroth you to me in righteousness, in justice, in lovingkindness, and in compassion.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:20 - I will even betroth you to me in faithfulness; And you shall know the LORD.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:21 - It will happen in that day, I will respond," says the LORD, I will respond to the heavens, And they will respond to the eretz;
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:22 - And the eretz will respond to the grain, and the new wine, and the oil; And they will respond to Yizre`el.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 2:23 - I will sow her to me in the eretz; And I will have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy; And I will tell those who were not my people, 'You are my people;' And they will say, 'My God!'"
