Hosea 2:16-23


16On that day, says the Lord, you will call me, ‘My husband’, and no longer will you call me, ‘My Baal’.* 17For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, and they shall be mentioned by name no more. 18I will make for you* a covenant on that day with the wild animals, the birds of the air, and the creeping things of the ground; and I will abolish* the bow, the sword, and war from the land; and I will make you lie down in safety. 19And I will take you for my wife for ever; I will take you for my wife in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love, and in mercy. 20I will take you for my wife in faithfulness; and you shall know the Lord.
21 On that day I will answer, says the Lord,
   I will answer the heavens
   and they shall answer the earth;
22 and the earth shall answer the grain, the wine, and the oil,
   and they shall answer Jezreel;*
23   and I will sow him* for myself in the land.
And I will have pity on Lo-ruhamah,*
   and I will say to Lo-ammi,* ‘You are my people’;
   and he shall say, ‘You are my God.’
