1 And Jehovah said to me, -- |Go again, love a woman beloved by a husband, and who is an adulteress, -- according to the love of Jehovah towards the children of Israel, who yet look to strange gods, and love flagons of grapes.|
2 And I bought her for myself for fifteen silverings and one homer of barley, and half an homer of barley.
3 And I said to her, -- |For many days shalt thou abide for me; thou shalt not play the wanton, and shalt not be for any man, and I also shall be for thee.|
4 For the children of Israel shall for many days abide without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without a statue, and without an ephod, and without teraphim.
5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return and seek Jehovah their God, and David their king; and they shall fear Jehovah and his goodness at the end of days.
