Hosea 3


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.
of wine: Heb. of grapes
So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley:
half…: Heb. lethech
And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee. For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:
image: Heb. a standing, or, statue, or, pillar
Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the  Lord their God, and David their king; and shall fear the  Lord and his goodness in the latter days.
