Hosea's Second Symbolic Marriage

1 Then the LORD said to me, "Go again, love a awoman who is loved by her bhusband, yet an adulteress, even 1as the LORD loves the sons of Israel, though they turn to other gods and love raisin 2cakes." 2 So I 3bought her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver and a homer and a chalf of barley. 3 Then I said to her, "You shall 4stay with me for many days. You shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have a dman; so I will also be toward you." 4 For the sons of Israel will remain for many days 5without king or prince, 6without sacrifice or sacred 7pillar and without 8ephod or e9household idols. 5 Afterward the sons of Israel will 10return and seek the LORD their God and 11David their king; and 12they will come trembling to the LORD and to His goodness in the last days.
