The Holy Bible: King James Version. 2000. Hosea
Hosea and the Adulteress
Then said the L ORD unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress, according to the love of the L ORD toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine.
So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for a homer of barley, and a half homer of barley:
and I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee.
For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:
afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the L ORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the L ORD and his goodness in the latter days.
