Hosea 2 : 16, 17b-18, 21-22
So I am going to allure her, lead her once more into the desert, where I can speak for her tenderly.
There she will answer Me as in her youth, as when she came out of the land of Egypt. On that day, YHVH says, you will call Me my Husband, and never again : my Baal.
You will be My spouse forever, betrothed in justice and integrity; we will be united in love and tenderness. I will espouse you in faithfulness and you will come to know YHVH.
