Hosea 1:2; Hosea 2:2; Hosea 3:1; Hosea 12:12
The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go , take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom , departing from the LORD.
Plead with your mother, plead : for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts;
Then said the LORD unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress , according to the love of the LORD toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine.
And Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and for a wife he kept sheep.
