Hosea 3


“Say to your brothers, ‘My people!’+‘Ammi’ in Hebrew Contend with your mother! Lest I strip her naked, Indeed, on her children I will have no mercy; For their mother has played the prostitute. Therefore behold,+“Behold,” from “הִנֵּה”, means look at, take notice, observe, see, or gaze at. It is often used as an interjection. I will hedge up your way with thorns, She will follow after her lovers, For she did not know that I gave her the grain, the new wine, and the oil, Therefore I will take back my grain in its time, 10 Now I will uncover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, 11 I will also cause all her celebrations to cease: 12 I will lay waste her vines and her fig trees, 13 I will visit on her the days of the Baals, 14 “Therefore behold, I will allure her, 15 I will give her vineyards from there, 16 It will be in that day,” says Yahweh, 17 For I will take away the names of the Baals out of her mouth, 18 In that day I will make a covenant for them with the animals of the field, 19 I will betroth you to me forever. 20 I will even betroth you to me in faithfulness; 21 It will happen in that day, I will respond,” says Yahweh, 22 and the earth will respond to the grain, and the new wine, and the oil; 23 I will sow her to me in the earth;
