Triumph of Love

1 *Again the LORD said to me: Give your love to a woman beloved of a paramour, an adulteress; Even as the LORD loves the people of Israel, though they turn to other gods and are fond of raisin cakes.*

2So I bought her for fifteen pieces of silver and a homer* and a lethech of barley. 3Then 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.” 4For the people of Israel shall remain many days without king or prince, Without sacrifice or sacred pillar,* without ephod or household idols. 5Then the people of Israel shall turn back and seek the LORD, their God, and David, their king;* They shall come trembling to the LORD and to his bounty, in the last days. b Ez 34, 23 . 1 *The number of the Israelites shall be like the sand of the sea, which can be neither measured nor counted. Whereas they were called, “Lo‐ammi,” They shall be called, “Children of the living God.” c Rom 9, 26 . 2Then the people of Judah and of Israel shall be gathered together; They shall appoint for themselves one head and come up from other lands, for great shall be the day of Jezreel. 3Say to your brothers, “Ammi,” and to your sisters, “Ruhama.”
