1 Then YHWH said to me, `Go again, love a woman loved by a friend, and an adulteress, according to the love of YHWH for the children of Yisra`el, though they are turning to other mighty ones and love their raisin cakes.`
2 So I bought her for myself for fifteen pieces of silver, and one and one-half homers of barley.
3 And I said to her, 'You are to remain with me many days, you are not to whore, nor become any man's, and so I shall also be towards you.'
4 For many days the children of Yisra'el are to remain without sovereign and without prince, and without slaughtering, and without pillar, and without shoulder garment or house idols.
5 Afterward the children of Yisra'el shall return, and seek YHWH their Elohim, and Dawid their sovereign, and fear YHWH and His goodness, in the latter days.
