Hosea Redeems His Wife1 Then the LORD said to me, “Go show love to your wife again, though she is loved by another and is an adulteress. [Love her] as the LORD loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods [and offer] cakes of raisin.” 2 So I bought her for fifteen [shekels] ▼
▼ That is, about 6 ounces or 171 gramsof silver and a homer and a lethek ▼
▼ That is, a total of about 9 bushels or 330 liters (probably about 430 pounds or 195 kilograms of barley); LXX a homer of barley and a wineskin full of wine. . . of barley. 3 Then I said to her, “You must live with me for many days; you must not be promiscuous or belong to another, and I will do the same for you.” 4 For the Israelites must live many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, and without ephod or idol. 5 Afterward, the people of Israel will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the LORD and to His goodness in the last days.
