Hosea 3


Israel Will Return to The LORD

1And the  lord said to me, You go again and love a woman loving evil and an adulteress! even as [2loves 1the  lord] the sons of Israel, and they look away unto strange gods, and are fond of cakes with dried grapes. 2And I hired her to myself for fifteen pieces of silver, and a homer of barley, and a skin flask of wine. 3And I said to her, [2days 1Many] you shall sit down by me, and in no way should you commit harlotry, nor should you be to a man, and I will be unto you. 4For [2days 1many] [4shall sit down 1the 2sons 3of Israel] with there not being a king, nor there being a ruler, nor there being a sacrifice, nor there being an altar, nor a priesthood, nor manifestations. 5And after these things [4shall return 1the 2sons 3of Israel], and they shall seek the  lord their God, and David their king; and they shall be amazed over the  lord, and over his good things at the latter end of the days.
