"Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he wil bind up our wounds." (Hosea 6:1)
"I will not show my love to her children, because they are the children of adultery."
(Hosea 3: 1-3)
"Again The Lord said to me: Give your love to a woman beloved of a paramour, and adulteress: Even as The Lord loves the people of Israel, though they turn to other gods and are fond of raisin cakes. "So I bought her for fifteen pieces of silver and a homer and a lethech of barely. Then I said to her: "Many days you shall wait for me; you shall not play the harlot Or belong to any man; I in turn will wait for you."
