← Oseas 2   Oseas 4 →

1 Y DIJOME otra vez Jehová: Ve, ama una mujer amada de su compañero, aunque adúltera, como el amor de Jehová para con los hijos de Israel; los cuales miran á dioses ajenos, y aman frascos de vino.

2 Compréla entonces para mí por quince dineros de plata, y un homer y medio de cebada;

3 Y díjele: Tú estarás por mía muchos días: no fornicarás, ni tomáras otro varón; ni tampoco yo vendré á ti.

4 Porque muchos días estarán los hijos de Israel sin rey, y sin príncipe, y sin sacrificio, y sin estatua, y sin ephod, y sin teraphim.

5 Después volverán los hijos de Israel, y buscarán á Jehová su Dios, y á David su rey; y temerán á Jehová y á su bondad en el fin de los días.
