Future Repentance and Restoration of Israel
2:14 However, in the future I will allure her;46
I will lead47 her back into the wilderness,
and speak tenderly to her.
2:15 From there I will give back her vineyards to her,
and turn the “Valley of Trouble”48 into an “Opportunity49 for Hope.”
There she will sing as she did when she was young,50
when51 she came up from the land of Egypt.
2:16 “At that time,”52 declares the Lord,
“you will call,53 ‘My husband’;54
you will never again call me,55 ‘My master.’56
2:17 For57 I will remove the names of the Baal idols58 from your lips,59
so that you will never again utter their names!”60
