3 Then said the Lord unto me, aGo yet, love a woman beloved of her bfriend, yet an adulteress, according to the love of the Lord toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love cflagons †of wine. 2 So I dbought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for ean homer of barley, and an †half homer of barley: 3 And I said unto her, Thou shalt fabide 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. 4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days gwithout a king, and without a prince, and ggwithout a sacrifice, and without †han image, and without an ijephod, and without jkteraphim: 5 kkAfterward shall the children of Israel return, and lseek the Lord their God, and mDavid their king; and nshall fear the Lord and ohis goodness pin the latter days.
