12 “And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees,

Of which she has said,

‘These are my wages that my lovers have given me.’

So I will make them a forest,

And the beasts of the field shall eat them.

13 I will punish her

For the days of the Baals to which she burned incense.

She decked herself with her earrings and jewelry,

And went after her lovers;

But Me she forgot,” says the Lord.

God’s Mercy on His People

14 “Therefore, behold, I will allure her,

Will bring her into the wilderness,

And speak 7comfort to her.

15 I will give her her vineyards from there,

And nthe Valley of Achor as a door of hope;

She shall sing there,

As in othe days of her youth,

pAs in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

16 “And it shall be, in that day,”

Says the Lord,

That you will call Me 8‘My Husband,’

And no longer call Me 9‘My Master,’

17 For qI will take from her mouth the names of the Baals,

And they shall be remembered by their name no more.

18 In that day I will make a rcovenant for them

With the beasts of the field,

With the birds of the air,

And with the creeping things of the ground.

Bow and sword of battle sI will shatter from the earth,

To make them tlie down safely.
