1 3 Say ye to your brothers, Ammi*; and to your sisters, Ruchamah*.

2 4 Plead with your mother, plead, for she is not My wife, and I am not her husband; and let her put·​·aside her harlotries from her face, and her adulteries from between her breasts,

3 5 lest I strip her naked, and place her as in the day of her birth, and set her as a wilderness, and put her as an arid land, and cause her to die with thirst.

4 6 And I will not have·​·compassion·​·on her sons, for they are the sons of harlotries.

5 7 For their mother has committed·​·harlotry; she who conceived them has been shamed, 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.

6 8 Therefore, behold, I will hedge·​·up thy way with sirim*, and fence· her ·in with a fence, that she shall not find her trails.

7 9 And she shall pursue her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find; and she shall say, I will go and return to my first husband, for it was better for me then than now.

8 10 And she did not know that I gave grain to her, and must*, and olive·​·oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which* they made for Baal.

9 11 Therefore will I return, and take My grain in its time, and My must in its season, and will rescue My wool and My flax to cover her nakedness.

10 12 And now I will reveal her foolishness* to the eyes of her lovers, and a man shall not rescue her from My hand.

11 13 And I will cause all her joy to cease, her festival, her new·​·moon, and her Sabbath, and all her solemn·​·occasions.

12 14 And I will desolate her vine and her fig·​·tree, of which she has said, These are my hire* that my lovers have given me; and I will set them for a forest, and the animal of the field shall eat them.

13 15 And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim, in which she burned·​·incense to them, and she decked herself with her earrings and her jewelry, and she went after her lovers, and Me she forgot, says Jehovah.

14 16 Therefore, behold, I will entice her, and cause her to go into the wilderness, and speak on her heart.

15 17 And I will give to her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for an entrance of hope; and she shall answer there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she went·​·up from the land of Egypt.

16 18 And it shall be in that day, says Jehovah, that thou shalt call Me Ishi*; and shalt not call Me Baali* any·​·more.

17 19 And I will remove the names of Baalim from her mouth, and they shall not be remembered any·​·more by their name.

18 20 And in that day will I cut a covenant for them with the animal of the field, and with the fowl of the heavens, and with the creeping thing of the ground; and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle from the earth, and will cause them to lie·​·down securely.

19 21 And I will betroth thee to Me for eternity; and I will betroth thee to Me in justice and in judgment, and in mercy and in compassions.

20 22 And I will betroth thee to Me in faithfulness; and thou shalt know Jehovah.

21 23 And it shall be in that day, I will answer, says Jehovah; I will answer the heavens, and they shall answer the earth;

22 24 and the earth shall answer the grain, and the must, and the olive·​·oil; and they shall answer Jezreel.

23 25 And I will sow her to Me in the earth; and I will have·​·compassion·​·on her who had· not ·compassion; and I will say to him who was not My people, Thou art My people; and he shall say, Thou art my God.
