Then the LORDsaid to me, "Goagain, love a awoman who is loved by her bhusband, yet an adulteress, even 1as the LORDloves the sons of Israel, though they turn to othergods and loveraisin2cakes."
So I 3bought her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver and a homer and a chalf of barley.
Then I said to her, "You shall 4stay with me for manydays. You shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have a dman; so I will also be toward you."
For the sons of Israel will remain for manydays5withoutking or prince, 6withoutsacrifice or sacred 7pillar and without8ephod or e9householdidols.
5Afterward the sons of Israel will 10return and seek the LORD their God and 11David their king; and 12they will cometrembling to the LORD and to His goodness in the lastdays.
