Hosea 3

Allah said to me, Go again, love a woman loved by another, and an adulteress, even as Allah loves Bani-Israel, though they turn to other gods, and love cakes of raisins.

2So I bought her for myself for fifteen pieces of silver and a homer and a half of barley. 3I said to her, You shall stay with me many days. You shall not play the prostitute, and you shall not be with any other man. I will also be so toward you.

4For Bani-Israel shall remain many days without king, and without prince, and without sacrifice, and without sacred stone, and without ephod or idols. 5Afterward Bani-Israel shall return, and seek Allah their God, and Dawud their king, and shall come with trembling to Allah and to his blessings in the last days.
