Hosea 2:5–7

For gtheir mother has played the whore;

she who conceived them has acted shamefully.

For hshe said, ‘I will go after my lovers,

who igive me my bread and my water,

my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.’

Therefore jI will hedge up her4 way with thorns,

and kI will build a wall against her,

so that she cannot find her paths.

She shall pursue her lovers

but not overtake them,

and she shall seek them

but shall not find them.

lThen she shall say,

‘I will go and return to mmy first husband,

lfor it was better for me then than now.’
