2:1 he children of Judah shall be gathered,
And the sons of Israel together,
And shall appoint themselves one head,
And shall come up out of the land:
For great shall be the day of Jezrael.

2:1 "Say to your brother, 'My people,'
And to your sister, 'Pitied.'

Gomer and Israel are unfaithful

2:2 "Plead with your mother, plead:
For she is not my wife,
And I am not her husband:
And I will remove her fornication out of my presence,
And her adultery from between her breasts:

2:3 That I may strip her naked,
And make her again as she was at the day of her birth:
And I will make her desolate,
And make her as a dry land,
And will kill her with thirst.

2:4 "And I will not have mercy upon her children;
For they are children of fornication.

2:5 And their mother went a-whoring:
She that bore them disgraced them:
For she said,
'I will go after my lovers,
That give me my bread and my water,
And my garments, and my linen clothes,
Mine oil and my necessaries.'

2:6 "Therefore, behold, I hedge up her way with thorns,
And I will stop the ways,
And she shall not find her path.

2:7 And she shall follow after her lovers,
And shall not overtake them;
And she shall seek them,
But shall not find them:
And she shall say,
'I will go, and return to my former husband;
For it was better with me than now.'

2:8 "And she knew not that I gave her her grain, and wine, and oil,
And multiplied silver to her:
But she made silver and gold images for Baal.

2:9 "Therefore I will return,
And take away My grain in its season,
And My wine in its time;
And I will take away My garments and My linen clothes,
So that she shall not cover her nakedness.

2:10 And now I will expose her uncleanness before her lovers,
And no one shall by any means deliver her out of My hand.

2:11 And I will take away all her gladness,
Her feasts, and her festivals at the new moon,
And her Sabbaths, and all her solemn assemblies.

2:12 "And I will utterly destroy her vines,
And her fig-trees,
All things of which she said,
'These are my hire which my lovers have given me:'
And I will make them a testimony,
And the wild beasts of the field,
And the birds of the sky,
And the reptiles of the earth shall devour them.

2:13 And I will recompense on her the days of Baalim,
Wherein she sacrificed to them,
And put on her ear-rings, and her necklaces,
And went after her lovers,
And forgot me,"
Saith the Lord.

God has mercy on his people

2:14 "Therefore, behold, I will cause her to err,
And will make her as desolate,
And will speak comfortably to her.

2:15 And I will giver her possessions from thence,
And the valley of Achor to open her understanding:
And she shall be afflicted there according to the days of her infancy,
And according to the days of her coming up out of the land of Egypt.

2:16 "And it shall come to pass in that day,"
Saith the Lord,
"That she shall call Me, 'My husband,'
And shall no longer call Me 'My master, Baalim.'

2:17 And I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth,
And their names shall be remembered no more at all.

2:18 And I will make for them in that day a covenant with the wild beasts of the field,
And with the birds of the sky,
And with the reptiles of the earth:
And I will break the bow and the sword and the battle from off the earth,
And will cause thee to dwell safely.

2:19 And I will betroth thee to Myself for ever;
Yea, I will betroth thee to myself in righteousness,
And in judgment, and in mercy,
And in tender compassions;

2:20 And I will betroth thee to Myself in faithfulness:
And thou shalt know the Lord.

2:21 "And it shall come to pass in that day,"
Saith the Lord,
"I will hearken to the Heaven,
And it shall hearken to the earth;

2:22 And the earth shall hearken to the grain,
And the wine, and the oil;
And they shall hearken to Jezrael.
