The Book of Hosea

Return to Index.

Chapter 3

1

And Yahweh said unto me, Go again, love a woman beloved of her friend, and an adulteress, even as Yahweh loveth the children of Israel, though they turn unto other elohim, and love cakes of raisins.

2

So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and a homer of barley, and a half-homer of barley;

3

and I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be any man's wife: so will I also be toward thee.

4

For the children of Israel shall abide many days without king, and without prince, and without sacrifice, and without pillar, and without ephod or teraphim:

5

afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek Yahweh their Elohim, and David their king, and shall come with fear unto Yahweh and to his goodness in the latter days.
