For 8their mother has played the whore; she who conceived them has acted shamefully. For 9she said, 'I will go after my lovers, who 10give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.'
She shall pursue her lovers but not overtake them, and she shall seek them but shall not find them. 13Then she shall say, 'I will go and return to 14my first husband, 15for it was better for me then than now.'
And 28I will lay waste her vines and her fig trees, 29of which she said, 'These are 30my wages, which my lovers have given me.' I will make them a forest, 31and the beasts of the field shall devour them.
And 32I will punish her for 33the feast days of the Baals when she burned offerings to them and 34adorned herself with her ring and jewelry, and went after her lovers and forgot me, declares the LORD.
And there I will give her her vineyards and make the Valley of Achorb a door of hope. And there she shall answer 37as in the days of her youth, as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.
And 40I will make for them a covenant on that day with the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the creeping things of the ground. And 41I will abolishc the bow, the sword, and war from the land, and I will make you lie down in 42safety.
